Restrictions are currently in place in Victoria. Effective 11.59pm on Tuesday, 12 May 2020, the government is telling Victorians there are only 5 reasons to be out:

  • shopping for what you need - food and essential supplies
  • medical, care or compassionate needs
  • exercise in compliance with the public gathering requirements
  • work and study if you can’t work or learn remotely
  • visiting friends and family - if you really need to

Police can issue fines for non-compliance with these restrictions.

For more information, you can see a comprehensive list of Frequently asked questions about Directions by the Victorian Chief Health Officer at the Department of Health and Human Services.
