Great news this week with Premier Daniel Andrews announcing that regional Victoria will move to step 3 of the roadmap to recovery.
From midnight Wednesday 16 September, the following changes will take place:
- No restrictions on leaving home
- Spend time with others outside where possible
- Public gatherings: up to 10 people outdoors
- Visitors allowed at home from 1 other household (up to 5 people)
- Schools return to onsite learning from Term 4 with safety measures
- Hospitality open for predominantly outdoor seated service only
- All retail open, except personal care (hairdressers open)
School students should expect to head back into the classroom in term 4 with the return being staggered from the week of 12 October.
Regional Victoria will move to the last step in the roadmap from 23 November if we get to zero new cases state-wide for 14 days.
