Acting Victorian Premier James Merlino announced an end to Victoria’s current lockdown from 11:59pm Thursday 10 June 2021.
However, in an effort to control the recent outbreak, visitors to homes will remain banned in Melbourne. While Melbournians will only be able to travel up to 25 km from their home.
Some good news for retailers
With lockdown ending, restrictions will ease in the Greater Melbourne area. Restaurants and cafes can reopen for seated service with up to 100 people per venue and a maximum of 50 inside. Retail can reopen in line with density limits of one person per four square metres. While beauty therapists can also resume service for treatments where masks can be worn.
Merlino said under the new restrictions, offices will be able to reopen. However, staff numbers will be capped at 25. Nonetheless, the Acting Premier urged people to continue to work from home where possible.
