Stay at Home Directions for Melbourne’s restricted postcodes

From 11.59pm 1 July, new Stage 3 Stay at Home Directions are in place for Melbourne’s restricted postcodes.

The following areas are experiencing a high level of transmission or are at high risk of transmission. To slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) Stay at Home restrictions apply to these postcodes: 3012, 3021, 3032, 3038, 3042, 3046, 3047, 3055, 3060, 3064.

If you live in one of these locations, you need to stay at home.

There are four reasons that you can leave home:
🚩 Shopping for food or other essential items.
🚩 To provide care giving, for compassionate reasons or to seek medical treatment.
🚩 For exercise (outdoor exercise only, with only one other person or members of your household).
🚩 Work or study, if you cannot work or study from home.
To help keep our communities safe and reduce the number of people gathered across Victoria, changes have also been made to the restrictions.

Victorians are being asked to use common sense when it comes to visiting friends and family, especially those who are more vulnerable. That means seeing only those you need to – if you need to.

Shopping centres are also required to apply the four square metre rule to limit the number of shoppers.

Outdoor markets are required to apply the four square metre rule to limit the number of shoppers.

You can only visit one of the restricted postcodes mentioned above for four reasons: shopping for food and supplies, care and caregiving, exercise, and study or work – if you can’t do it from home.

If you need to travel through one of the restricted postcode areas, you can. You should plan your trip so that you don’t need to stop in an impacted area unless it is for one of the four reasons.

Remember – staying apart keeps us together.
