Latest Update

Tuesday September 15

Update: Step 3 restrictions will apply to Regional Victoria from 11:59pm on Wednesday September 16.

What’s changing?

  • No restrictions on the reasons for leaving home
  • Spend time with others outside where possible 
  • Public gatherings of up to 10 people outdoors
  • Visitors to the home – create a ‘household bubble’ with one nominated household allowing up to 5 visitors from that household at a time
  • Schools return to onsite learning from Term 4 with safety measures
  • Hospitality open for predominantly outdoor seated service only
  • All retail open, including personal care beauty and hairdressing where face masks can be worn at all times
  • No distances travelled, although you won’t be able to travel into areas with higher restrictions

Masks are still mandatory whenever you leave your home, or are in the company of people who do not live in your house.

Find Easy English information for mask wearing here.

Physical distancing and good hand and respiratory hygiene are still the best defence against transmission.

Wash your hands regularly, coughing and sneezing into your elbow, keeping at least 1.5 metres from others and staying home if you feel unwell.
