Gradual Ease of Restriction in Victoria

From 11.59 pm on Tuesday 12 May, new arrangements will come into effect, which indicates that there will now be 5 reasons to leave your home. They are as follow:

  • shopping for food and supplies that you need

  • care and caregiving

  • exercise and outdoor recreation

  • work and education – if you can’t do it from home

  • visiting friends and family – if you really need to

Moreover, some restrictions have been cautiously eased to allow people to look after their own, and others’ health, wellbeing and social connection.

This includes:

  • up to 5 people to visit your home (must be friends and family).

  • up to 10 people being allowed to gather for the purposes of non-contact sport and recreation in public settings.

  • Up to 10 people for small gatherings at some indoor facilities, such as places of worship and community centres. The four-square metre rule applies in these settings.

Even as restrictions are gradually eased, it’s critical that you continue to keep 1.5 metres between yourself and others and you practise good hygiene.  If you feel unwell, even if you have tested negative for coronavirus, it is vital you stay at home.
