As announced today by Premier Daniel Andrews, Victoria will enter a snap lockdown from midnight tonight in a bid to stop the spread of the Delta COVID-19 variant.
To all our Victoria members, sorry you have to do this again. We are sending all our good thoughts your way.
What you need to know:
The lockdown will last for five days and residents will only have five reasons to leave home, including:
- shopping for essential items,
- outdoor exercise,
- essential work or study where it cannot be done from home,
- compassionate or medical care,
- and travelling to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
One person per household may leave the house for essential shopping. Residents will be restricted to travelling within a five-kilometre radius of their home.
What does it mean for our practitioners?
It is highly recommended to move your appointments online or reschedule until after the lockdown finishes.
