Earlier this week, our Premier Daniel Andrews updated Victorians on new restriction changes for June.
As of Tuesday, 26th May 2020, the following places will be re-open:
- Outdoor playgrounds
- Outdoor communal gym equipment
From 11:59pm 31st May 2020, the following rules will apply:
- A total of 20 people can be present in your home (this includes the people living there as well)
- Outdoor gatherings can now have up to 20 people
- Overnight stays at private accommodations are allowed
- Campgrounds and caravan parks will be open except for communal facilities such as kitchens and bathrooms
- Up to 20 people (not including the couple and celebrant) can attend a wedding
- Funerals can have up to 50 people (not including those required to conduct the ceremony)
- Up to 20 people (not including those required to conduct the ceremony) can attend a religious service/ceremony
- Libraries, youth centres and other community facilities will be open with no more than 20 people (not including those required to operate the space) inside a single area
- Entertainment and cultural venues will be open with no more than 20 people (not including those required to operate the space) inside a single area – these venues include galleries, museums, drive-in cinemas, historic sites, zoos and outdoor amusement parks
- Swimming pools will be open, limited to 20 people.
- Beauty and personal care services (i.e. nail salons, spas, tattoo parlours) will be open, limited to 20 customers per space, provided contact details are recorded
- Auctions and open inspections are subject to a 20-person limit (not including those required to conduct the activity) provided contact details are recorded
- Non-food and drink market stalls will be able to open business
Those who are working from home (or can work from home) should continue (or start) to do so at least until the end of June. This will prevent mass amounts of people from moving around within our state, and hence, minimise the chances of community transmission.
From 22nd June 2020
Restrictions are set to ease again from 22nd June 2020 if community transmission rates continue to remain low and testing rates remain high. Let’s all keep up the hard work by remembering to:
- Stay home when possible
- Practice social distancing – keeping at least 1.5 meters apart.
- Practice good hygiene – regularly wash your hands with hand soap for at least 20 seconds and avoid touching your face
- Get tested – if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms
