From June 1, Victorians will be able to have a total of 20 people in their home, which means 15 visitors for a family of five and overnight stays will also be allowed at private residences and accommodation as will camping and stays at caravan parks.
This comes as Victoria’s Premier Daniel Andrews revealed the message is no longer “stay at home” as the state moves to the next wave of restrictions easing that are coming in just over a week following high rates of testing and low levels of community transmission.
Outdoor gatherings can also increase to 20 people and community facilities and businesses will be able to reopen – including places like libraries, community centres, beauty therapy and tattoo studios with no more than 20 people in a single area
Entertainment and cultural venues like galleries, museums, drive-in cinemas and historic sites will be able to open their doors from June 1, alongside zoos and outdoor amusement parks to up to 20 patrons.
Then, if it all goes to plan, from 11.59pm on 21 June, the state will look at reopening gyms, indoor sports facilities, movie theatres – and the snow season will be able to kick off.
And here's the plan and key dates for Step 2: pic.twitter.com/60YQhZBHl9
