What does this mean for me?

If you live in Metropolitan Melbourne, a curfew will be in place in metropolitan Melbourne from 8pm to 5am every evening, with people only allowed to leave their home:

  • to provide care, for compassionate reasons or to seek medical treatment
  • to shop for food and necessary supplies which must be within 5km distance from your home, except if the nearest supermarket is further than 5km (only one person per household can leave to go shopping per day)
  • to exercise which must take place within 5km of home, and must be in metropolitan Melbourne (exercise is limited to one hour, once per day)
  • for work or study, if you can’t do it from home

If you live in Country Victoria (including the Mitchell Shire), there are only four reasons that you can leave home: to shop for food and essential goods or services, to provide care, for compassionate reasons or to seek medical treatment, to exercise or for outdoor recreation with your household or one other person or for work or study, if you can’t do it from home.
