Restrictions from Monday, 19 October:

Face coverings:

A face covering means a face mask that covers the nose and mouth.  Face shields on their own do not meet these requirements.

Social

  • Public gatherings - up to 10 people from a maximum of two households can meet outdoors for social interaction, exercise or recreation (infants under 12 months of age are not included in the cap) within 25 km of their home (no time limit)
  • People living alone or single parents can nominate one person with whom they can form a ‘single social bubble’. A bubble allows you to visit each other for social interaction. Single parents with dependents who cannot be left alone will be allowed to include their dependents in the bubble. If you live in metropolitan Melbourne you can only form a bubble with someone in metropolitan Melbourne, not regional Victoria.
  • If the person you nominate to be in your bubble lives with other people, you can only visit if they are at home alone. Alternatively, they can visit you at home.
  • Face coverings must be worn during visits.
  • Professional respite care for people with complex needs is allowed.

You are required to wear a face mask / covering  if you are leaving home for one of the four reasons:

  • Wearing a face mask protects you and your community by providing an additional physical barrier to coronavirus (COVID-19). 
  • Keeping 1.5 metres between yourself and others and washing your hands are still the best defences against coronavirus (COVID-19).
