Stage 4 coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions changed slightly from 11.59pm on Sunday 13 September 2020.

What changed?

The curfew has eased to 9pm every evening until 5am the next morning.

During this time, you’ll only be allowed to leave your home for essential work, health, care or safety reasons. You still must not travel more than 5km from where you live.

Two people, or a household, may now meet outdoors for two hours maximum (this can be split over two sessions).

If you live alone or are a single parent of children under the age of 18 you can have one nominated visitor in your home.

Not much else has changed. You must still wear a face mask when leaving home for one of the permitted reasons.

Visit the DHHS coronavirus website for full details on these new restrictions.

Parks and playgrounds

You, your household, or you and one other person from another household may meet in Yarra's parks for social interaction (without needing to exercise). Our playgrounds are now also open again.

Please remember to keep wearing a mask, practising good hand hygiene and physical distancing.

We’re still here for you

You can be assured that we’ll continue to deliver the essential services Yarra needs to keep moving. However, there are likely to be more impacts to our programs and services – we’ll update you on this as we know more. 

Please be kind to each other, and check in on your friends, family and neighbours as often as you can. Stick to the rules and wear a mask or face covering if you do have to go out for one of the permitted reasons.
