Restrictions to ease for regional Victoria

From 11.59 pm on Thursday 9 September, COVID restrictions eased for most of regional Victoria - that is, apart from Greater Shepparton. No changes relevant to croquet for metro Melbourne.

Guidance from the Premier's office is that for most of regional Victoria:

  • the check-in requirements continue
  • density quotient of 1 person per 4 square metres applies for any shared spaces outside the home
  • subject to the density quotient, sports clubs can re-open for outdoor community recreation - maximum of 20 people, separate groups of no more than 10
  • masks are mandatory outside the home, unless you are eating or drinking at a seated venue, or vigorously exercising
  • public gatherings of up to 10 people are allowed
  • travel is allowed within Victoria, but is severely restricted between metro Melbourne and regional Victoria and across the border with NSW

Our Return to Croquet guidelines have now been updated in line with the detail in the most recent Restricted Activity Directions from Victoria's Chief Health Officer.
