Coronavirus state of disaster for Victoria
From 6pm on Sunday August 2, Victoria will move from a State of Emergency to a State of Disaster.

Stage 4 restrictions will apply to all people within the Melbourne metropolitan area, and regional Victoria will move to the Stage 3 restrictions. Mitchell Shire will also remain at Stage 3.

A range of new rules will apply to those under Stage 4 restrictions, including:
1 A curfew will apply from 8pm to 5am, and the only reason to leave the house during curfew hours is to work, or to receive or provide medical care or caregiving.
2 Exercise outside the home is limited to a maximum of one hour per day, with only one other person allowed to exercise with you (whether you live with that person or not). Exercise must be within a 5km radius of your house.
3 One person per household may go shopping per day, also restricted to within 5km of your house.
4 All schools — regional and metropolitan — will return to remote learning from Wednesday August 5, after a newly announced pupil free day on Tuesday. The only exceptions will be for vulnerable students and children of workers in permitted essential services.
6 Remoted learning rules will also apply to kinder and early childhood services from Thursday August 6.
7 No weddings will be permitted in the Melbourne metropolitan area from 11.59pm, Wednesday August 5.

These restrictions will apply until Sunday 13 September.
