From 11.59pm tonight, Stage 3 “Stay at Home” restrictions come into force for six weeks across metropolitan Melbourne and the Mitchell Shire. 

“These restrictions have become necessary because of the sharp increase in cases,” said Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton.

“If you live in these areas, there’ll be only four reasons to leave your home: shopping for food and essential items; care and caregiving; daily exercise; and work and study, if you can’t do it from home. 

“This Stay at Home direction will apply to your principal place of residence – which means you need to stay home and not use a holiday home.

“Restaurants and cafes will return to takeaway and delivery services only, and beauty and personal services will need to close. Entertainment and cultural venues will need to close. Community sport will also stop.
 
“From Monday, all Year 11 and Year 12 students in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire will go back to school for Term 3 as planned, along with our special schools. For students Prep to Year 10 in these areas, school holidays have been extended for one week to give us time to look at the data and decide the next steps.

“These are tough measures but this virus is not selective - it will impact anyone it encounters, and personal contact is the clear source of its transmission. We need everyone to do their part and ensure it is stopped in its tracks.”
