Extract from the Statement made by the Premier on Sunday 2nd August
“And from 11:59pm on Wednesday, regional Victoria will return to Stage 3 “Stay at Home” restrictions.
That means there’ll again only be four reasons to be out: shopping for food and essential items. Care and caregiving. Daily exercise. Work and study – if you can’t do it from home.
Otherwise, you need to stay home.
Businesses in regional Victoria will also return to Stage 3 restrictions.
That means restaurants and cafes can only offer delivery and takeaway. Beauty and personal services will need to close. Entertainment and cultural venues will need to close. Community sport will need to stop.”
“Face coverings will continue to be compulsory – ensuring that if we do have to be out, it’s in the safest way possible.”
“Regional schools will return to remote and flexible learning – across all year levels and across the state. The only exception will be for our specialist schools.”
“These changes will be in place for at least the next six weeks. As always, we’ll keep reviewing and realigning the restrictions in line with the advice of our health experts – and if we can change things earlier, we will.”
