From 11.59pm last night, a number of restrictions eased in regional Victoria. This will no doubt come as a big relief for many in our community.
Below is a summary of the new restrictions:
More information about restrictions is available here.
I have also written to the South Australian Premier to ask that he recognises the easing of restrictions in regional Victoria and revises his state’s border rules appropriately, particularly in relation to cross border community members currently being unable to travel outside the 70km zone border zone on the Victorian side.
If you need any help interpreting the directions or accessing supports, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with my office on 5382 0097 or email [email protected]
Take care and be kind,
At the time of writing, entry to South Australia is limited to essential travellers (which includes cross border community members). Cross border community members are able to enter South Australia and travel anywhere within the state, but must remain within 70km of the border on the Victorian side. I have written to the South Australian Premier to ask that cross border community members be able to travel anywhere within regional Victoria without it affecting their entry to SA.
You can access the current South Australian directions here.
At the time of writing, there are 72 active COVID-19 cases in our state, none of which are in regional Victoria.
