Following a week of no coronavirus cases, the Victorian Government announced the further easing of restrictions to bring metropolitan Melbourne in line with regional Victoria from 11:59pm on Thursday 8 July 2021. These changes include increased density limits and the easing of mask requirements in schools or workplaces that are not public-facing.
For community sport, a density quotient of 1 person per 2 sqm will apply when using a COVID Check-in Marshal, otherwise a density quotient of 1 person per 4sqm applies. Community sport remains open for all ages both training and competition within these venue limits and subject to all COVIDSafe settings.
The Victorian Government has provided this Table of Restrictions from 11:59pm on Thursday 8 July 2021 which defines the changes to the statewide settings.

All Victorians should monitor for symptoms, get tested, and get vaccinated when eligible.
If you have been to an exposure site, are a close contact of a confirmed case, or exhibit any symptoms of COVID-19 – such as fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, chills or sweats, or change in sense of smell or taste – get a test immediately. Find out where to get tested HERE.
The Victorian vaccination program is now open to all Victorians over the age of 40 as well as select priority groups. Getting vaccinated helps protect you from getting sick with COVID-19. The vaccines being used in Australia are safe, free, and very effective at preventing serious illness and loss of life from COVID-19.

While Victoria continues to vaccinate the population, you can stay safe by washing your hands regularly, wearing a face mask, coughing and sneezing into your elbow, and keeping at least 1.5 metres from others. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, no matter how mild, you must get tested and stay home.
