Victoria’s Premier Daniel Andrews imposed a series of geographical lockdowns for COVID-19 hotspots in Victoria following the outbreaks noted in certain clusters. The following hotspots will be in lockdown from 11.59pm tomorrow night.
Residents in the postcodes 3012, 3021, 3032, 3038, 3042, 3046, 3047, 3055, 3060, 3064 will enter stage 3 restrictions, meaning they must not leave home except for four reasons.
Other Victorians should not visit these postcodes in the next four weeks unless they are going for work which they must physically be present to do.
“You shouldn’t be going into those postcodes over the next four weeks unless it is for work and only for work that you have to do in person,” Mr Andrews said.
“You shouldn’t be going into those postcodes unless it was for instance to get care or to give care.”
