The Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews, has announced that Victoria will remain in lockdown for a further 3 weeks, until at least 11.59pm Thursday 23 September, at which time it is expected that the 70 percent target of first dose vaccination for Victorians will be reached, in order for reduced restrictions to be announced.

From midnight tomorrow night, Thursday 2 September:

  • Playgrounds will reopen
  • In-home care including babysitters will be expanded to school aged care but only if both parents are authorised workers.

The same five reasons, as previous lockdowns, you can leave your house:

  • Shopping for necessary goods and services, one person per household
  • Authorised work or permitted education
  • Exercise, two hour limit with one other person
  • Care giving, compassionate and medical reasons
  • To receive your COVID-19 vaccination.

The following restrictions will continue to apply: 

  • Permits will be required to leave the house for authorised work
  • The night time curfew remains in place, from 9pm to 5am everyday
  • Masks can no longer be removed outdoors to consume alcohol
  • Construction projects are now limited to 25 percent of workforce.
