Gippsland's way out

Gippsland's way out

The roadmap to Covid Normal revealed

As the battle to reduce the impact of Covid-19 continues, areas of regional Victoria will see a limited easing of stage three restrictions in the coming days and weeks.

Premier Daniel Andrews has announced for regions including Gippsland that from 11:59pm on Sunday 13 September, people living alone and single parents will be able to have a bubble.

Up to five people will be able to gather together in outdoor public places – the park, the beach – up to a maximum of two households. By limiting it to two households, the government says they are still able to limit the virus’s ability to spread.

Outdoor pools and playgrounds in regional Victoria will also open. And religious services can be conducted outside with a maximum of five people, plus a faith leader.

For schools and students, we’ll begin a staged return to onsite learning from Term Four.

All VCE and VCAL students – in Melbourne and regional Victoria – will attend onsite for the General Achievement Test and other essential assessments from 5 October.

The steps in the government's 'roadmap to reopening' for regions including Gippsland are detailed HERE.

Daniel Andrews said, "Importantly, we want the whole of the state to be at COVID Normal by the end of the year – making sure family barbecues, summer holidays and a trip to the beach can all still happen."

"These steps will be guided by dates – and the data. That means if we’re on-track to take a step forward, we can do so confidently.

"With clear and articulated case targets, we’re creating “trigger points” for review for our public health team – and giving Victorians even more insight into how we’re tracking," the Premier said.
