The Victorian Government has today announced a loosening of restrictions in metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria from 11.59pm on Thursday 10 June.

You can read full details of the new restrictions here.

In relation to Melbourne, the acting premier’s media release states:

“… the five reasons to leave home will no longer apply in metro Melbourne, and the existing 10-kilometre limit will be increased to 25 kilometres.

But wherever possible, we’re asking people to stay local. That means the only reasons to go further than 25 km will be work, education, care and caregiving, and getting vaccinated.”

Among other things, schools will resume face-to-face learning, and cafes, hotels and pubs will reopen with density limits.

Importantly, if you can work from home you must work from home.

In regional Victoria, there are minor changes, including increased numbers at gatherings and up to two adults may visit your home.
