Victoria’s lockdown has been extended to 11:59pm on Tuesday 27 July to prevent further spread of COVID-19.

This means there are only five reasons to leave home:
– Get the food and the supplies you need
– Exercise for up to two hours and no more than 5kms from your home
– Care or caregiving
– Work or education if you can’t do it from home
– To get vaccinated at the nearest possible location.
If you were an authorised worker during the last lockdown, you are authorised worker this time around. Everyone else must work from home.
