Regional Victoria to move to 'Step Three' tomorrow night
Regional Victoria will take the next step on the roadmap from 11.59pm tomorrow night (16/09).
Premier Daniel Andrews has announced regional Victoria will enter the third step out of restrictions.
Areas currently under Stage Three restrictions outside of Melbourne have reached a new COVID case average of 3.6 over 14 days. There is one 'mystery case' in regional Victoria, which is expected to come off the list at the end of today.
As part of the changes, the four reasons to leave home will no longer apply.
The Premier confirmed that tourist accommodation will be open for regional Victorians to travel and holiday within the regions, while every business will be required to have a COVID Safe Plan, which will be enforced from September 28.
For hospitality businesses, only table service will be allowed with a two hour limit of bookings, 10 patrons will be allowed per space inside with a maximum of two spaces (rooms) meaning bigger venues will be able to seat up to 20 indoors.
Outdoor dining will be allowed for up to 50 seated patrons per space (max groups of 10), subject to density limits with tables needing to be spaced appropriately.
Moving to the last step of the roadmap will now require no new cases for 14 days state-wide.
