Covid-19 Travel Alert
With the global impact of COVID-19 well and truly upon us, the government is releasing new measures designed to protect our community. We appreciate the ongoing support to our region in these unprecedented times and hope that you are all staying healthy and looking after yourselves, your families and friends (even if from a distance).
We recommend you review your travel plans in line with the latest safety guidelines: State Government of Victoria health.gov.au
From 11.59pm on Wednesday 5 August, there were changes in restrictions to respond to the increase in case numbers and to help reduce the risk of further transmission. Based on emerging insights around cases and patterns in transmission, different restrictions will be applied to certain areas in Victoria.
- From 11:59pm on Sunday 2 August, face coverings must be worn by all Victorians when they leave home, unless they have a lawful exception.
- From 11:59pm on Wednesday 5 August, Stage 3 – Stay at Home restrictions apply in regional Victoria and remain in Mitchell Shire.
- From 6pm on Sunday 2 August, Stage 4 restrictions apply for people who live in metropolitan Melbourne.
We ask that you please respect each other, remain patient and adhere to the guidelines so that we can all enjoy our happy spaces. Stay safe by maintaining good hygiene, keeping your distance from others and if you feel unwell stay home.
Some restaurants and cafes are still open for take-away.
As always, we’re urging Victorians to use common sense in their activities. It’s up to all of us to make this work. These small acts of kindness and support are crucial at this time, and collectively, can make a big difference.
We will always remain committed to looking after the health and wellbeing of our visitors, our tourism operators, and our community, and in the meantime, will use our social media channels to keep reminding you (and the world) of our inspiring wildlife and landscapes and what it has to offer, as well as other ways that you can support our region during these times.
