Stage 3 stay at home restrictions in Melbourne LGAs


Based on advice from the Chief Health Office, ‘Stay at Home’ restrictions will be back in place across Metropolitan Melbourne LGAs and Mitchell Shire from 11:59pm, Wednesday 8 July for 6 weeks.

We know this feels like an incredible setback but this means there are only 4 reasons to be out:

  • Shopping for food and supplies.
  • Medical care and caregiving.
  • Exercise.
  • Study and work – if you can't do it from home.

All people in these areas 12 years old and over must wear a face mask or covering. More information on this can be found here.

Note: People who live in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire must not attend a wedding outside these areas, unless they are working as the celebrant. The celebrant must wear a mask. People who live in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire cannot hold a wedding outside these areas, even if a booking has already been made.

We understand that during times like this we will want to be close to our families and friends, but we all need to stay home. No one wants COVID-19 to head out of Melbourne, so we must do our bit to protect families and friends at this time.

We’re still working closely with government and peaks to support our Aboriginal Communities in the flats. This will continue right up until people stop needing support.

We know there are a lot of unanswered questions on what returning restrictions to Metropolitan Melbourne LGAs and Mitchell Shire means.

What it means for our kids in kinder and schools, who we can and can’t see, how to stay connected to supports etc.

We will have more information on what these restrictions mean for us mob tomorrow, but until then you can go to https://www.vic.gov.au/coronavirus-covid-19-restrictions-vi… for more details.

We must help by still practicing good hygiene, staying a safe distance, understanding your supports, getting tested if you have symptoms and staying home if you can.

Be safe.
