Regional restriction lifting mooted
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has flagged a potential easing of severe lockdown restrictions in regional Victoria next week.
But Mr Andrews said expectations were that while people might have some greater freedoms, significant restrictions would remain.
He added that circumstances at Shepparton might be different based on specific virus management of the area.
Overall, Victoria’s lockdown remains in place with September 23 earmarked as a target date for major reassessment.
Mr Andrews announced some minor restriction changes.
Victoria’s Chief Health Officer has declared that most current lockdown restrictions would remain in place until 70 percent of Victorians had at least one dose of vaccine. This is estimated to occur around the September 23 date.
