Daniel Andrews Announces Changes To Covid19 Restrictions - Here's What They Mean For Victorians
Restrictions will be eased for Victorians as of midnight, tomorrow night.
Premier Daniel Andrews made the announcement today - saying there will be changes this week.
"As we have worked to flatten the curve, we’ve been telling Victorians there’s only four reasons to be out: shopping for food and supplies, care and caregiving, exercise, and study or work – if you can’t do it from home.
"From 11:59pm this Tuesday night, there’s now a fifth reason to leave home: visiting friends and family – with a maximum gathering of up to ten outdoors and having up to five visitors in your home."
He also announced some changes for some outdoor activities.
"We’re also able to make some changes to rules for some of the most significant gatherings in any of our lives: weddings will now be able to have ten guests and up to 20 people will be able to attend funerals held indoors and up to 30 if they’re outdoors," he also explained.
"More of the outdoor recreational activities that so many Victorians have been missing will also be allowed: walking groups, fishing, hiking – and yes, even a game of golf. These activities will be subject to physical distancing to help keep people safe."
