The Victorian Government released a lot of information about their roadmap out of lockdown on 6 September. But what does this mean for people living in Melbourne?
Below is a plain language summary of the key questions people might have about what Melburnians will be allowed and not allowed to do for the next few months.
Yes. All Victorians must wear masks in public. No date has been set yet for this to end.
Offices are closed until after 26 October, except for people in permitted roles. However, this will depend on the number of cases being recorded each day. Workers will also still be encouraged to work from home where they can.
As long as the number of cases are down, children in prep to Grade 2, VCE and VCAL students, and specialist school students will go back to school in Term 4, on 5 October.
After 26 October, there may be a staged return back to school for Grade 3 to Grade 10 students.
From 14 September, single Victorians who live alone and single parents will be able to have one home visitor in their social bubble. From 26 October, all households will be able to choose one other household to visit.
Restaurants and cafes are only open for takeaway and delivery. After 26 October, they may be able to be open for outdoor seated service with a limit on numbers.
At the moment, only essential retail shops are allowed to be open and non-essential shops are only able to offer click and collect. After 26 October, non-essential shops should be able to re-open.
From 13 September, weddings will be allowed on compassionate grounds, with up to five people attending, including the couple, two witnesses and the celebrant.
Up to 10 people are currently allowed at a funeral.
