Resident update #2 - Thursday 3 June 2021
The Victorian Government has announced that the COVID-19 lock down will be lifted in regional Victoria from 11.59pm today.
However, the lock down will remain in force in Greater Melbourne for a further seven days.
The key changes for people in regional Victoria you need to be aware of are:
- The five reasons to leave home will be removed and there will be no limit on the distance you can travel from your home.
- You can only travel to Melbourne for a permitted reason and Melbourne restrictions apply while you're there. You can travel within regional Victoria.
- You are not allowed to have visitors to your home, except for an intimate partner.
- Face masks are not required outdoors when physical distancing of 1.5 metres can be maintained.
- Face masks are required indoors, except in private homes or with an exemption.
- Outdoor gatherings can be held with up to 10 people, and infants under 12 months are not included in that cap.
- Food and hospitality businesses will be open for seated service only, with a density rule of one person per four square metres.
- Retail can open and personal services such as beauty and tattooing can resume where masks can be worn.
- Religious gatherings of up to 50 people, plus one faith leader, indoors or outdoors will be allowed.
- Libraries and toy libraries can open with a cap of 50 people, subject to density limits.
I’ll keep you updated as any more changes are announced, and hopefully we can all look forward to more freedoms being restored soon.
