We can do this, Victoria

These next six weeks, stay connected, stay informed and most important of all, stay safe.

We did it before, we can do it again

The next several weeks will be challenging, especially for those Victorians in lockdown. It's now more important than ever to stay home and get tested if you're feeling unwell. Here’s a quick reminder of some of the safety measures we should all be mindful of.

Get tested

Get tested as soon as possible if you feel any of the symptoms of COVID-19.

What does stage 3 lockdown actually mean?

For Melbourne metro and Mitchel Shire, this means you cannot leave your home, except for one of the following four reasons:

  • To shop for food and essential goods and services
  • To provide care, for compassionate reasons or to seek medical treatment
  • To exercise or for outdoor recreation
  • Tor work or study, if you can’t do it from home.

Victorians outside these regions should exercise caution, good hygiene and be mindful of those who may be more vulnerable to illness. Visit the Department of Health & Human Services website for more information
