Community Update – 27 July 2021

Published: Tuesday 27 Jul 2021

The Premier has announced that we will come out of lockdown tonight, from 11:59pm Tuesday 27 July. There will still be restrictions in place to ensure this outbreak is stamped out completely. These settings are expected to be in place for 14 days. 

Restrictions easing for all Victorians:

  • No restrictions on reasons to leave home
  • The ‘authorised worker’ list no longer applies
  • No visitors to your home or holiday accommodation 
  • Public gatherings capped at 10
  • Schools are open
  • Masks must be work indoors and outdoors when away from home, unless an exemption applies
  • Community sport resumes but no spectators

Travel limits

No limit on distance of travel within Victoria, but those 12 and over must have negative COVID test to enter ski fields in Victorian Alpine Resorts. 

Several NSW LGAs have been removed from the ‘border bubble.’ The City of Wagga Wagga, Hay Shire Council, Lockhart Shire Council and Murrumbidgee Council will no longer be included in the cross border bubble from 11:59pm tonight. Residents will need a Specified Worker Permit, transit permit, or an exemption to enter Victoria.

Council services  

Maternal Child Health, childhood immunisation and other essential services will continue. 

Aqualink centres, Sportlink, Morack Public Golf Course and the Nunawading Community Hub will re-open. Community facilities will re-open with density and patron caps. 

Our Customer Service Centres at Forest Hill, Box Hill and Nunawading Civic Centre will re-open. You can also reach us via Council’s website, phone on 9262 6333 or email at customer.service@whitehorse.vic.gov.au

Updates on all Council facilities can be found on Council’s website.

COVID Check-in Marshalls

COVID Check-in Marshalls are required at many indoor leisure, arts, cultural and community facilities. We will have Marshalls in place to remind and help visitors to check in. Some entrances to our facilities may be closed and you may need to use another entrance. Please cooperate with our Marshalls in their work to keep our community safe. 

Play our part – testing and vaccination 

Check in. If you have even mild symptoms, get tested, and stay at home while waiting for the results. For information about coronavirus or to find your nearest testing site, visit coronavirus.vic.gov.au or call 1800 675 398.

Get information about vaccination from a reliable source such as your GP or www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/vaccine. Make an appointment when you’re eligible and don’t delay. Vaccination is our pathway out of the pandemic.
