Last week we Victorians reached the 70% milestone. We are now free to leave our homes, we no longer have a curfew and this Friday we’ll enjoy further easing of restrictions including the removal of travel limits.
Our next milestone will see us free to travel state-wide and interstate, enjoy our state’s famous hospitality industry, retail will reopen, and entertainment caps will increase.
For those still working from home, double-vaccinated workers will be able to return to the office.
Restrictions remaining in place from 6pm this Friday
- Face masks remain mandatory indoors (not at home).
- Face masks will not be required to be worn outdoors.
- It is highly recommended to continue wearing face masks on common property, particularly within enclosed common property areas in apartment buildings.
Restrictions lifting from 6pm this Friday
