There are already almost 11,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Victoria as of the start of August. Being the second smallest state by land area of Australia, makes it easier for the virus to spread.
On Sunday, with the trend topic on the Telstra cyber attack, Melbourne was also announced to enter stage 4 restriction.
According to 10 News First Melbourne from a twitter thread:
From 6pm tonight, Melbourne will move to Stage 4 restrictions, including an 8pm to 5am curfew.
Victoria will enter a State of Disaster, in addition to its current State of Emergency.
Regional Victoria will move to Stage 3 ‘stay at home’ restrictions from midnight on Wednesday.
Intimate partner visits beyond the 5-km travel radius will be permitted under Stage 4 restrictions.
Stage 4 is the highest level of coronavirus lockdown restriction that will happen in Australia.
Other updates include:
Recreational activity is no longer allowed, with one hour of exercise per day permitted. Just one person from each household will be allowed to go grocery shopping, and Melburnians will not be able to travel more than 5-kms away from their homes.
Children of parents in “defined industries” will be able to attend childcare, with these industries to be announced tomorrow.
