Like many Victorians you will probably be up to date with the latest news relevant to you with regards to COVID-19 restrictions. Therefore within these posts we don’t try to cover everything, other than how restrictions (or the easing of) affect Outdoor related activities.
We are still waiting to find out some specifics regarding school camps for regional school students at least and will update as soon as we know.
- The current restrictions have been extended at least another 7 days (no one is given us an actual date)
- There will still be only five reasons to leave home: shopping for food and supplies, authorised work and study, care and caregiving, exercise, and getting vaccinated.
- People will be able to travel further for exercise and shopping, with an expanded 10km radius.
- Kids in Year 11 and 12 will return to face-to-face learning. That includes students in other year levels who are doing a Unit 3/4 VCE or VCAL subject, while that class is being taught.
With no community transmission in regional Victoria this week, regional restrictions are proposed to begin easing from 11:59pm tomorrow night (Thursday 3rd June)
- All year levels and all students will return to face-to-face schooling.
- Public gatherings – catching up at a public place like the park or the beach – will be increased to ten people.
- Regional Victorians will be able to travel in regional Victoria. Melburnians will not.
QR requirements are now mandatory in retail settings like supermarkets and shops. The 15-minute threshold will also be removed so anyone entering a shop or a cafe will need to check-in.
