The VIC Premier released this statement earlier today. It is in line with what the National Cabinet announced last night.: https://www.premier.vic.gov.au/statement-from-the-premier-35/
- National Cabinet has agreed to significant new restrictions on public gatherings and will also enforce that where people can stay at home, they must stay at home.
- My message to every Victorian is that there are only four reasons to leave your home: food and supplies, medical care, exercise, and work or education.
- That’s why we are also restricting gatherings to no more than two people except for members of your immediate household and for work or education.
- If people breach these directions, they face on-the-spot fines of $1,652 for individuals and $9,913 for businesses. Larger fines can also be issued through the courts.
