If you live in one of these locations, you need to stay at home. There are four reasons that you can leave home:
- Shopping for food or other essential items
- To provide care giving, for compassionate reasons or to seek medical treatment
- For exercise (outdoor exercise only, with only one other person or members of your household)
- Work or study, if you cannot work or study from home
If you live outside these locations, there’s only four reasons to come in: shopping for food and supplies, care and caregiving, exercise, and study or work – if you can’t do it from home.
There will also be sport and recreation activity, facility and venue restrictions in these restricted postcodes including:
- indoor sports centres including gyms, training facilities and pools will be closed
- community sport training and competition cannot occur within a restricted postcode. If you live in an impacted area you cannot participate in community sport elsewhere
- play centres, arenas, and stadiums will be closed
- outdoor sport facilities will be closed. Personal training outdoors can occur but with a limit of two participants plus the instructor.
More details are available at the Department of Health and Human Services coronavirus (COVID-19) website. Updated specific guidance for community sport and physical recreation for Melbourne’s hot zone postcodes will be published shortly.
