Victoria will enter stage four restrictions from 11.59pm tonight (Friday 12th February) until 11.59pm on Wednesday.

Victorians will only be able to leave their homes for one of the four essential reasons, including shopping for necessary goods and services, essential work or education if it cannot be done from home, exercise for two hours per day with household members, an intimate partner or one other person only.

The five-kilometre travel radius has also been reinstated and masks must be worn everywhere in public.

The lockdown has been instigated in response to the ‘Holiday Inn outbreak’.
