Melbourne’s restrictions eased slightly from Wednesday, September 29, when Victoria hit her goal of 80% of the first dose of vaccination.
Moorabool County and Shepparton were scheduled to enter a seven-day lockdown starting at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, October 1.
From Wednesday, September 29, Mitchell Shire went into confinement until further notice.
In metropolitan Melbourne as well as Shepparton, Moorabool and Mitchell, residents are allowed to travel up to 9 miles from their homes to exercise and shop. This increased by 10 km.
“Non-contact” outdoor recreation – such as boating, tennis or golf – is permitted, as is personal training with up to five people, provided everyone is vaccinated.
Restrictions on playgrounds have been lifted, with normal collection limits to be enforced. The masks can be removed to eat or drink.
Restaurants and cafes in the Victoria area will have their outdoor caps lifted from 20 to 30 people, and barber and beauty salon customers will be able to remove their masks if needed for facials or beard trimming.
A full and current update can be found in the restrictions table at the bottom of this Press release.
