COVID-19 Updates

Summary of restrictions in Melbourne

There are only five reasons to leave your accommodation:

  • shopping for necessary goods and services
  • caregiving or compassionate reasons, including medical care or to get a COVID-19 test
  • authorised work (with a permit) or permitted education
  • exercise (once a day for 2 hours)
  • to get a COVID-19 vaccination (provided the distance travelled, and the time taken is no more than is absolutely necessary).

A stay-at-home curfew is in place for Metropolitan Melbourne. Between 9:00pm and 5:00am, you cannot leave your accomodation other than for limited reasons, including health and medical purposes, care and support of a child or someone with special needs, in an emergency or to escape harm.

Face masks must be worn indoors and outdoors whenever you leave your accommodation, if you are aged 12 and over.

You can remove your mask in a public place when consuming food, medicine or non-alcoholic drinks. You cannot remove your mask to eat or drink in retail settings such as a shopping centre or supermarket.

You can find information, updates and advice about the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) on the Victorian government website.
