Victoria has recorded no new cases of coronavirus since yesterday and there are no cases currently active. The total confirmed cases in Victoria remains at 20,345.
This is the 30th straight day where Victoria has recorded zero daily cases.
With Victoria recording a month of zero daily cases, it is still vitally important that anyone who displays even the mildest of COVID-19 symptoms must stay home and arrange to get tested.
Results from testing gives us the most complete picture of the Victorian virus situation.
High rates of testing are still critical to inform the actions of health authorities as we proceed towards a COVIDSafe Summer.
From 11.59pm tonight, workplaces currently working from home (such as offices in the CBD) can return for up to 25 per cent of their workforce per site. Standard workplace requirements, including density limits, continue to apply.
Businesses with fewer than 40 staff can have 10 staff on-site subject to density quotients.
The Victorian Public Service will remain under the setting - if you can work from home, you must work from home.
Under these new arrangements, face coverings are mandatory indoors, unless an exemption applies. This includes settings such as public transport, including when waiting at stations, ride shares, hospitals, care facilities and shopping.
Face masks are not required outdoors except where physical distancing cannot be maintained, such as farmers’ markets and other outdoor retail. People are required to carry face masks at all times.
A permit is required to enter Victoria from South Australia unless an exemption applies. Permits are available from the Service Victoria website.
More information about travel to and from South Australia is available on the DHHS website.
