The Victorian Government has today announced the lockdown will end at 11.59pm tonight (Tuesday 27 July).
You can read the Premier’s full statement here.
“From 11.59pm tonight, Victorians will be able to leave their homes for any reason. Restaurants and cafes can also reopen for seated service. Retail and beauty and personal care will open in line with density limits, as will entertainment venues and community facilities.
The Authorised Worker List will no longer apply, meaning businesses and venues can reopen with capacity and density limits of 1 person per 4sqm. Victoria will return to the rule that ‘if you can work from home, you should work from home’ but office workers will be able to return up to 25 per cent or up to 10 people, whichever is greater.
Schools will reopen for onsite learning to all students from tomorrow.
Public gatherings will be allowed with up to 10 people, with infants under 12 months not included in the cap.
However, due to the significant transmission risk we have seen throughout the pandemic, gatherings in the home are still not permitted. People will only be able to book accommodation with their household, intimate partner or single bubble person.”

Tens of thousands of Victorians have been under strict isolation, with many still isolating. And we thank each of these people for the sacrifice they have made.
