Mask rules tightened as new cases and exposure sites surge
Victorians are being ordered to mask up in all indoor spaces again.
It comes after 10 new COVID-19 cases were recorded yesterday, and another two cases emerged this morning.
In a tweet late last night, the state government said face masks would become mandatory for anyone aged 12 or older in all indoor spaces, including offices and schools, from 11.59pm last night.
Masks must also be worn outdoors if you cannot maintain a 1.5 metre distance from people outside your household.
Melbourne and Geelong are on high alert today after eleven new cases from two separate exposure emerged yesterday.
A teacher at Bacchus Marsh Grammar is understood to have tested positive to the virus.
A Barwon Heads Primary School Student has also tested positive.
Both schools are closed today.
The Department of Health’s COVID-19 exposure site list has ballooned to more than 70 exposure sites including trams, trains, fast food restaurants, shops, health services, a football and netball club, gyms and a pub.
Joshua owns Persist Fitness at Werribee, now a Tier 1 site, and told Neil Mitchell he was “feeling lost” after returning home from getting tested.
He said he was of the understanding a positive case had attended his gym after going to the Carlton and Geelong game on Saturday.
