Victoria was hit with the devastating news last night that it would be subjected to its fifth lockdown since March last year.
The circuit-breaker lockdown began at 11:59pm yesterday, and is currently set to end at 11:59pm on Thursday 20 July.
There are only five reasons for Victorians to leave their homes, four of which are well-known – essential shopping; approved work; exercise with a two-hour limit with one other person; medical and caregiving reasons; and to get vaccinated.
Here’s how you can help some of Victoria’s venues:
