Due to the ongoing level of community transmission of coronavirus in Victoria, the current lockdown across Melbourne will be extended and a curfew will be put in place across metropolitan Melbourne for a further 2 weeks, until at least midnight, Thursday 2nd of September 2021.
The strengthened settings will see a curfew imposed from 9pm to 5am every night. This will operate as it did last year, with very limited reasons to leave the home during this time. There will be increased police presence across metropolitan Melbourne to ensure public health measures are enforced.
For Melbourne, there are still only 5 reasons for leaving your home: to secure food /supplies and exercise (within 5kms of your home), authorised work & study, care-giving, and getting vaccinated/tested.

Additional restrictions for construction are:
