COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS: New rules introduced as Victorian outbreak grows
New COVID-19 restrictions have come into effect for Greater Melbourne, as authorities scramble to control the latest outbreak of COVID-19.
There are now nine active community cases.
RULES FROM 6PM ON MAY 25:
- Private gatherings: Limited to five visitors per day.
- Public gatherings: Maximum of 30 people.
- Face masks: Mandatory in indoor spaces outside the home for all over-12s unless an exemption applies.
People visiting regional Victoria from Melbourne can still do so, but the restrictions follow them.
All Victorians arriving in Western Australia will be required to get tested for COVID-19 and isolate until they return a negative result.
Queensland has declared the City of Whittlesea a COVID-19 hotspot.
Everyone coming from Victoria will need a border pass from 1am on Thursday 1am.
Anybody entering QLD from that local government area will go into hotel quarantine from Wednesday.
