From 11:59pm Monday 9 August 2021, restrictions in regional Victoria will ease. After this time, people in regional Victoria can leave their home for any reason and there is no limit on the distance they can travel from home. However, people will only be able to travel to Melbourne for a permitted reason and must follow the Melbourne restrictions once there.

Private gatherings in the home are still not permitted, however outdoor gatherings in public spaces can occur with up to 10 people. Face masks will also still be mandatory indoors and outdoors.

Mandatory face masks

You must wear a face mask when you leave your home or intimate partner’s home — both indoors and outdoors. You must carry a mask at all times.
