To help slow the spread of COVID-19, the Victorian Government has made it mandatory for people living in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire to wear face coverings when they are leaving the house.
Council is not a COVID-19 vaccination provider but there are number of local vaccination centres, including the Monash Health vaccination centre at Sandown Racecourse in Springvale and Star Health which includes Prahran Town Hall.
All Australians 40 and over are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination, among other groups. You can use the Australian Government’s eligibility tracker to find out if you are eligible to be vaccinated. It also includes a wide range of information on the vaccine and roll-out.
Getting tested for COVID-19
If you are unsure about whether you should get a test, get advice by:
- calling the 24-hour coronavirus hotline on 1800 675 398 or your general practitioner
- using the Department of Health and Human Service's (DHHS) online self-assessment tool.
The Victorian Government has financial support available for people who are unable to work while in isolation.
