State Government enforces Stage 4 restrictions

On Sunday 2 August, Victoria was declared a State of Disaster. Melbourne also moved to Stage 4 restrictions, with stronger rules to limit the movement of people and limit the spread of the virus.

These enhanced restrictions include a new curfew from 8pm to 5am daily. The only reasons to leave home during these hours will be work, medical care and caregiving.

Glen Eira Mayor Cr Margaret Esakoff said now more than ever, we all need to play our part in helping to slow the spread of this dangerous and infectious disease.

“This is a very challenging time for our community. For the next six weeks, please stay at home as much as possible,” she said.

“We all need to stay safe and look after ourselves and the people we love and care about.”

Cr Esakoff said new time, distance and gathering limits also apply for exercise and shopping.

“Between 5am and 8pm, you can only travel up to five kilometres from your home for exercise and shopping,” she said.

“When you are out, always remember to wear a face covering, practise social distancing and good hygiene measures.

“Exercise is limited to one hour a day and you may only exercise with one other person.

“Once a day, one person from your household can leave home to get necessary goods and services.”
