COVID-19 Update February 12
Victoria will enter a new five-day lockdown in response to the latest COVID-19 outbreak amid concerns the new UK strain of the virus could be spreading in the community.
From midnight tonight there will be only four reasons to leave your home: shopping, essential work, two hours of exercise and care and caregiving.
No visitors will be allowed into any private residence, and exercise and shopping will be limited to within five kilometres of home.
Schools will be closed from Monday except for vulnerable students or children of essential workers.
Gyms, pools, community centres, entertainment venues and libraries will close. Cafes and restaurants will be takeaway only.
The lockdown ends on Wednesday at midnight.
