Regional To Ease Further

State Government clarifies next step for regional areas

Regional Victoria is set to see further eased restrictions come into effect, in time for the Queens Birthday long weekend.

A full list of exactly what is set to change at 11:59pm Thursday June 9, can be found via this link.

Greater Melbourne will also see some restrictions eased, in line for the most part with what is currently allowed in regional areas, but they won't be able to travel to the regions this weekend.

More details below.

Extract from Statement by Acting Premier James Merlino

In regional Victoria, restrictions will also ease.

Visitors to the home are allowed – limited to two people and their dependants – once per day.

Public outdoor gatherings will be limited to 20 people.

There’ll also be increases to the capacity limits at places like restaurants, entertainment venues, community facilities and religious gatherings.

Indoor sport, including gyms, will also be able to reopen with careful limits on the number of people permitted at any point in time.

There’ll be plenty more detail available online. But I want to assure people, subject to public health advice, we’ll have more to say about what further stages of easing will look like next week.

That includes the regional border coming down and Victorians being able to travel more freely around the state.
