Acting Victorian Premier James Merlino MP statement on lessening movement restrictions and staying COVIDSafe
There's still work to do, there's still our state to keep safe and every Victorian needs to help to keep everyone COVIDsafe.
Make no mistake - our collective efforts over these past few weeks have changed the course of this outbreak. As individuals, as families and as a community, we have again done an incredible thing: protecting our state with grit, guts and determination. Thanks doesn't seem enough, but I'll say it anyway. To every Victorian for following the rules, for doing the right thing, and for doing it with kindness and compassion - thank you.
Acting Victorian premier James Merlino MP said that, as always, we'll make sure we keep people updated on how we're tracking, providing more detail and more certainty as soon as we can
For staying home and staying safe. For ordering in and taking out. For Zoom calls and virtual catchups. And for looking out for each other. As much as we've achieved - this isn't over. And it's up to all of us to protect this precious thing we've worked so hard for. That means staying COVIDSafe - most importantly, getting tested if you have any symptoms.
It's singlehandedly the biggest contribution we can make, ensuring that if the virus is circulating - we catch it early. Whether you do it for your family, your mates or your state - if you're sick, get tested. We've always said that when we could safely ease the rules, we would. And if we could make things even just a little easier, we wouldn't waste a minute. It's why, on the advice of the Chief Health Officer, we can take some first safe steps.
That means metropolitan Melbourne will move to almost the same settings currently in place across regional Victoria. And regional Victoria will move towards further easing. From 11:59pm Thursday 10 June, the five reasons to leave home will no longer apply in metro Melbourne, and the existing 10-kilometre limit will be increased to 25 kilometres.
