As you may be aware the Victorian Government issued a notice last night that a positive case of COVID-19 has been identified. As a result a number of exposure sites have also been identified with more likely to be added. Click here to see a full up-to-date list. If you’ve been to any of these locations, you need to get tested and isolate at home for 14 days.
Additional restrictions come into effect from 4 February 2021. Key points:
Masks will again be mandatory indoors – in shops, in workplaces, anywhere this virus has a greater potential to spread. You must always carry a face mask with you when you leave home. Private gathering limits will also be reduce to 15. This means a maximum of 15 guests in your home. Up to 100 people can meet outdoors in a public place. There is no limit on the number of households those people come from. The scheduled increase to the number of people working in offices has been paused, the current cap of 50% will remain in place. Additional testing sites and Rapid Response Team sites will be operational in the city’s south-east from 4 February and drive through sites will have extra lanes. If you have symptoms – even if you’ve been nowhere near an exposure site – get tested.
Remember to wash hands regularly, practice respiratory hygiene, maintain social distance and most importantly if you are unwell stay home.
