The Victorian Premier has watered down the announcement he made yesterday to largely follow the Prime Minister’s evening announcement.

From 12pm today, only the following will close:

  • The borders to South Australia and Western Australia are restricted
  • Pubs
  • Licensed Clubs
  • Cinemas
  • Casinos
  • Places of worship
  • Nightclubs
  • Entertainment venues
  • Gyms and indoor sporting venues
  • Cafes and restaurants will be restricted to takeaway only

Businesses can stay open if not on the list above, but must comply with physical distancing and sanitation.

Schools in Victoria: Government schools will close on Tuesday 24 March in Victoria so teachers can prepare online learning. Some independent schools have announced online learning from Tuesday until the end of Term One; some have already commenced online learning prior to this week.

Work from home if you can.

Don’t socialise.

Police are enforcing physical distancing rules.
