Larger footy crowds for this weekend as restrictions ease
Health Minister Martin Foley commended Victorians on their efforts getting Covid numbers down to zero.
“The good news is that the position here in Victoria is stable. That means that we can ease our restrictions further.”
Along with footy crowds, density limits at cafes, restaurants and gyms will be relaxed, dancefloors are back with up to 50 people, and 15 people are allowed in homes.
The Health Minister also announced an ease of restrictions in face masks in some areas and workplaces.
“They will no longer be required at schools for students and staff, and they will no longer be required fat workplaces if you don’t interact with the public. For example in offices and factory settings.”
We’re reminded to use QR codes, get tested when we present symptoms, and get vaccinated if possible.
