New restrictions and closures

The Victorian Government has announced new measures to contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). They come into force at midnight on 25 March 2020.

The most important message for all Victorians is to stay at home and avoid all gatherings of people. This minimises the chances of transmission, protects the health system and saves lives.

If you are with other people, you must observe the rule of 1 person for every 4 square metres to ensure a safe physical distance.

If you are in doubt about whether you should go out, go to the shops, take public transport, or let your children go on a play date – the simple answer is don’t.  

What are the new measures?

The Victorian Government has already ordered the closure of hotels, pubs and clubs (excluding bottle shops within those venues), casinos, cinema, nightclub, entertainment venues, gyms and indoor sporting centres.

There are now further closures of non-essential businesses, limitations on certain activities, and closure of a range of venues, attractions and facilities where large numbers of people would otherwise be in close proximity.

What activities must cease?

Cafe's and food courts

Retail and commercial premises

Beauty and personal care services

Entertainment venues

Community and recreation centres

Outdoor recreation

Non-residential institutions

Places of worship
