Covid-19 Circuit Breaker Action
Circuit breaker action
From 11:59pm on 12 February new circuit breaker actions will be in place to stop the spread of COVID-19 across Victoria.
The COVID-19 Circuit Breaker Action ends at 11:59pm on Wednesday the 17th of February, 2021.
Restrictions to leave home have been lifted, real estate inspections and auctions can resume.
New changes have been introduced to slow the spread of COVID-19 by reducing the number of people leaving their homes and moving around Victoria.
This means that you cannot leave your home unless you are doing it for one of the following four reasons: shopping for necessary goods and services; care and caregiving; exercise; and permitted work.
You must stay within 5km of your home. This limit does not apply to work or when giving or receiving care.
You can leave your home in an emergency or if there is family violence.
Face masks will need to be worn indoors and outdoors whenever you leave your home.
These actions will protect our loved ones, friends, colleagues, health care workers and the community.
If you need to leave home, you must wear a face mask, unless you have a lawful reason for not doing so. Always wash your hands before you leave, and when you return home. Keep at least 1.5 metres between yourself and others.
Never, ever go out if you are unwell unless it is to get tested. After you get tested, you must go straight home. Remember that the most important thing you can do is get tested, even if you have the mildest of symptoms.
