On the back of the Premier’s announcement on Sunday 2 August, Hockey Victoria advises that all community hockey activities must be suspended. Some of the key points are outlined below, and more information is available on the DHHS website.
Metropolitan Melbourne – Stage 4 restrictions
From 6pm on Sunday 2 August, restrictions are changing for metropolitan Melbourne. Metropolitan Melbourne is moving to Stage 4 Restrictions. These changes are being introduced to reduce the number of people leaving their homes and moving around Victoria. From 2 August, a curfew will be in place in metropolitan Melbourne. Curfews will be in operation from 8pm to 5am every evening, with people only allowed to leave their house for work, and essential health, care or safety reasons.
Regional Victoria – Stage 3 restrictions
From 11:59pm on Wednesday 5 August, Stage 3 Stay at Home restrictions apply in Victoria, except if you live in metropolitan Melbourne where Stage 4 restrictions apply. If you live in regional Victoria, including Mitchell Shire, there are only four reasons that you can leave home:
- to shop for food and essential goods or services
- to provide care, for compassionate reasons or to seek medical treatment
- to exercise or for outdoor recreation with your household, or one other person
- for work or study, if you can’t do it from home
We all need to play our part to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). By staying at home and limiting contact with other people, we can help protect ourselves, our families and our communities from coronavirus (COVID-19).
