BULLETIN: 36/2020



The Premier has announced a gradual easing of restrictions in Victoria in relation to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.


Under the changes, it means that there will be five reasons to leave your home:

  • shopping for food and supplies that you need
  • care and caregiving
  • exercise and outdoor recreation
  • work and education – if you can’t do it from home
  • visiting friends and family – if you really need to

These new arrangements will come into effect at 11.59pm on Tuesday 12 May.
