Residents are only allowed to leave their home for four reasons, including: exercising, working, buying essentials, and getting medical help.
Prime Minister Daniel Andrews reminded all Victorians that “we are here together” as they work to contain the virus.
“As difficult and challenging as it is, we cannot deny the reality of the situation we are facing, nor can we pretend that we are doing something other than following the rules,” he said.
People who are locked are also encouraged to wear face masks if the safe distance of 1.5 meters cannot be maintained.
“Due to an abundance of caution, because it is relatively simple, we have to ask all Victorians when they are out of their house, and this mainly concerns the metropolis of Melbourne and Mitchell Shire … it is our request from you (to wear a mask), ‘said Mr Andrews on Friday.
“It’s not mandatory, we’re just asking that if you can wear a mask you can’t distance yourself from, that’s exactly what we want you to do.
“That’s a relatively small contribution, but one that can really make a big difference.”
The state government has already ordered two million reusable masks and one million single-use masks for the communities to slow down the spread of the deadly virus.
