Covid-19 update: Lockdown extended for Melbourne

​​​​​​​CVGT Australia offices in metropolitan Melbourne will remain closed to the public, with the metropolitan area’s lockdown extended for a fortnight.

The Victorian government confirmed today lockdown would continue until at least Thursday 2 September.

The government also announced the return of an overnight curfew – from 9pm until 5am each night – and the reintroduction of permits for authorised workers.

The five rules for leaving home remain in place. They are:

  • shopping for necessary goods and services
  • caregiving or compassionate reasons, including medical care or to get a COVID-19 test
  • authorised work or permitted education
  • exercise (once a day for 2 hours)
  • to get a COVID-19 vaccination

Mutual obligation requirements are suspended for job seekers and participants in the Melbourne area. But they are reminded that looking for work is a fundamental requirement.

Authorised workers will be required to carry permits when working, and when travelling for work, from 11:59pm on Tuesday August 17.
