Corona Virus Update

Melbourne’s lockdown has again been further extended until 11:59pm Thursday 23 September.

Well here I am again and I’m sorry it is not with better news.

The current restrictions will remain until 70% of Victorians had had at least 1 dose of vaccine. This is estimated to be around 23rd September.

Until then there will still be only the five reasons to leave home, which we are all very familiar with by now. However from 11.59pm 2nd September, playgrounds will be opened for children under 12 with only 1 parent or guardian in attendance.Good news if you are looking after grand children.

When 70% of Victorians have had at least 1 dose of vaccine the restrictions will be reviewed.

So until then, reach out to someone if needed, follow the rules, get vaccinated if you can and stay safe.

Ann Brickell, President
