STATE OF DISASTER: Melbourne curfew now in place

16 Просмотры
Metropolitan Melbourne residents will not be allowed to leave their house after 8pm under a curfew to be implemented from Sunday night as Premier Daniel Andrews declares a state-of-disaster.

Melbourne and the Mitchell Shire will also go into a stage four lockdown, which means residents will not be allowed to go more than 5 kilometres from their primary place of residence.

Shopping will be limited to one person-per-household-per-day and within five kilometres of the individual’s place of residence.

Exercise will be limited to two people per group, once a day, with the measures to be in place for six weeks.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews told reporters the number of COVID-19 cases remain too high, which is why he chose to "go hard now."

“Metropolitan Melbourne is under the state of disaster provisions from 8:00pm tonight, a curfew will be implemented," Mr Andrews said.

"There will be a curfew across metropolitan Melbourne from 8:00pm this evening and run from 8:00pm to each and every day.

"And the only reason to be out of your home between the hours of 8:00pm and 5:00am is to get care, to give care, or to go to and from work or be at work."

Mr Andrews warned Victorians will not be able to leave their local area and only one person per household will be allowed to go to the shops for essential items.

"You will no longer be able to leave home and go any further away from your home than a 5km radius," Mr Andrews said.

"You will not be able to be at any point more than 5km away from your home for the purposes of shopping for what you need.

"Only one person will be able to go shopping once per day and they will need to secure the goods and services that are what you need within a 5km radius.”

Essential businesses will be kept open under stage four lockdowns.

The move comes after Victoria recorded 671 novel coronaviruses cases in the past 24 hours- the second highest number since Thursday’s 723.

Mr Andrews confirmed seven more Victorians have died due to the disease.
