Metropolitan Melbourne – Stage 4 restrictions

From 6pm on Sunday 2 August, restrictions are changing for metropolitan Melbourne. Metropolitan Melbourne is moving to Stage 4 Restrictions. The definition of metropolitan Melbourne is based on the Planning and Environment Act 1987 which sets out the local government areas that form metropolitan Melbourne, and will not include Mitchell Shire for the purposes of the Stage 4 curfew or travel restrictions. for further information thanks.

These changes are being introduced to reduce the number of people leaving their homes and moving around Victoria.

From 2 August, a curfew will be in place in metropolitan Melbourne. Curfews will be in operation from 8pm to 5am every evening, with people only allowed to leave their house for work, and essential health, care or safety reasons.

From 5am – 8pm, you can only leave your home for one of the following four reasons:

Necessary goods and services:
  • To shop for necessary goods and services.
  • You can only travel up to 5km from your home. You should stay as close to your home as possible, for example shopping at the nearest supermarket. For some people the nearest goods and services will be more than 5km away. In this situation you may travel beyond 5km to the nearest provider.
  • Only one person per household can leave home to get necessary goods and services and only once a day (this means you can’t do multiple shopping trips in a day). You should limit the time you spend away from home. If you are unable to leave home because it would mean leaving a young child or at-risk person at home unattended then they may accompany you.
Exercise:
  • You can leave home to exercise but there are limits:
  • You must not travel more than 5km from where you live to exercise.
  • You can exercise with one other person you live with or a friend or family member, as long as neither of you travel more than 5km from your home. Please use common sense and limit the number of people you see in person right now. It is safer to connect with friends and family using phone calls, social media and video calls. If you are exercising with someone else, you should keep 1.5 metres distance between you. Don’t hug, kiss or shake hands.
  • You must limit your exercise to once a day and for only one hour.
  • If you are a parent or guardian who is caring for a young child or someone who cannot be left unattended then they may accompany you.
Care and health care:
  • You can leave home to receive health care or attend medical appointments. If you need to see a doctor or health care professional, you should do so. Do not put off getting medical care. Your doctor or health care professional can provide advice on how to stay safe.
  • You can leave home to care for a sick or elderly relative. If you are providing care for someone you should try to keep 1.5 metres between you when you can. Wear a face covering.
  • You can leave home to accompany someone for essential medical treatment if you are a parent, guardian or necessary support person.
  • You can take a pet to the vet.
Work:
  • If you can work from home, you must continue to work from home. Further announcements regarding workplaces will be made in the coming days.
  • Study at TAFE and university must be done remotely.
Personal:
  • You can still visit an intimate partner.
  • Shared parenting arrangements, both formal and informal, can continue for children.
  • You can leave home if there is an emergency.
  • You can leave home if there is family violence, or violence by another person in the home, and you are at risk. If you are stopped by police, tell them you are feeling unsafe at home and they will help you. Safe accommodation and support for family violence is available. Call safe steps on 1800 015 188 or email safesteps@safesteps.org.aufor help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 

If you do need to leave home, you should wash your hands before you leave and when you return home. Keep at least 1.5 metres between yourself and others. Always wear a face covering, unless you have a lawful exception.

Never, ever go out if you are unwell, unless it is to get tested and then you must go straight home.

If we all do this, we can protect our loved ones, friends, colleagues, health care workers and the community.

Regional Victoria – Stage 3 restrictions

From 11:59pm on Wednesday 5 August, Stage 3 Stay at Home restrictions apply in Victoria, except if you live in metropolitan Melbourne where Stage 4 restrictions apply. The definition of metropolitan Melbourne is based on the Planning and Environment Act 1987 which sets out the local government areas that form metropolitan Melbourne.

If you live in regional Victoria, including Mitchell Shire, there are only four reasons that you can leave home:

  • to shop for food and essential goods or services
  • to provide care, for compassionate reasons or to seek medical treatment
  • to exercise or for outdoor recreation with your household, or one other person
  • for work or study, if you can’t do it from home

You may no longer have visitors to your home or visit other people in their homes.

We all need to play our part to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). By staying at home and limiting contact with other people, we can help protect ourselves, our families and our communities from coronavirus (COVID-19).

Your questions answered

The DHHS website will continue to be updated with content.

Why is this change being introduced?

Victoria has seen an increase in coronavirus cases over the last couple of weeks, including increased community transmission. We know that if everyone follows the restrictions, we can slow the spread of coronavirus. Stricter restrictions are being introduced that reduce the number of people who are moving around in the community. We know these new restrictions are tough, but together we can protect our loved ones, friends, colleagues, health care workers and the community.

Who does this apply to, and when?

From 6pm on Sunday 2 August 2020, Stage 4 restrictions apply to all people living in the Melbourne metropolitan area (but not Mitchell Shire). If you don’t live in this area, then Stage 3 restrictions will apply to you. The definition of metropolitan Melbourne is based on the Planning and Environment Act 1987 which sets out the local government areas that form metropolitan Melbourne. The local government areas where Stage 4 restrictions apply are:

  • Banyule
  • Bayside
  • Boroondara
  • Brimbank
  • Cardinia
  • Casey
  • Darebin
  • Frankston
  • Glen Eira

9th July 2020 Updates

Dear Students,

Hope you doing well,

ITS ACADEMY  is committed to the health, safety, and well-being of our student community during this period of pandemic. As a part of our efforts, we have sent some useful information and latest updates for students from Departments. We will keep you updated regularly as more information become available.

As you would be aware, on 7 July the Victorian Government made a series of significant announcements about new measures across metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

It is important to note that these new announcements apply only to metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire. See a list of LGAs in metropolitan Melbourne.

Based on the advice of the Victorian Chief Health Officer, Stage 3 Stay at Home restrictions were reinstated across metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire from 11:59pm on Wednesday 8 July.

People living in these areas can only leave home for one of four reasons:

  • shopping for essential food and supplies
  • care and caregiving
  • exercise
  • study or work – if it can’t be done from home.

Education remains one of the essential reasons for which Victorians may leave home, and there are a number of courses for which face-to-face instruction is required.

If courses require face-to-face learning, staff and students should maintain physical distancing, including staying 1.5 metres apart, whenever possible.

While physical distancing may not be practical or possible during all activities, other steps to reduce risk of transmission should be followed – such as regular cleaning, practising good hygiene by washing your hands regularly, and coughing or sneezing into your elbow.

Additionally, minimising disruption for students doing their VCE is critical during this time and we want to really encourage training providers to prioritise the delivery of on-site, face-to-face learning for all VCE and VCAL students.

If VCE and VCAL students have been learning online or remotely, providers are encouraged to shift back to on-site, face-to-face learning as soon as possible.

More information

Visit the Department’s coronavirus (COVD-19) web page for TAFEs and training providers.

You can also call 1800 338 663 during business hours.

A number of businesses and facilities in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire will be required to close, including beauty and personal care services, cultural and entertainment venues and community facilities. Cafes and restaurants will return to take-away and delivery only.

3rd July 2020 updates

Dear Students,

Hope you doing well,

ITS ACADEMY  is committed to the health, safety, and well-being of our student community during this period of pandemic. As a part of our efforts, we have sent some useful information and latest updates for students from Departments. We will keep you updated regularly as more information become available.

The Victorian Government has announced a return to Stage 3 Stay at Home restrictions for 10 Victorian postcodes in response to increased coronavirus (COVID-19) transmission in these areas.

A list of impacted suburbs in those restricted postcodes is available on the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) website

If you live in one of these 10 postcodes, there are now only four reasons to leave home:

  1. Shopping for food or other essential items
  2. Care and caregiving
  3. For exercise (outdoor exercise only, with only one other person or members of your household)
  4. Work or study, if you cannot work or study from home

TAFEs and RTOs can continue on-site delivery of practical, skills-based training.

This means staff and students who live in restricted postcodes can continue to attend on campus at their TAFE or registered training organisation (RTO) if work or training cannot be done at home.

If you need to travel through one of the restricted postcode areas, you can do so.

Students and staff who live in a different suburb but work or study at a TAFE or RTO in one of the restricted postcodes can continue to attend.

Keep yourself and others safe

Work or study remains one of the four reasons to leave home, but it is important to maintain good hygiene to keep safe.

Everyone should take the following actions:

  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Don’t cough or sneeze into your hands
  • Keep your distance from other people

If any staff or students have any symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), however mild, they must stay home, seek advice and get tested.

For the latest advice on staying safe while working and studying visit the DHHS website

COVID-19 INFORMATION

WHAT IS COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS)?

COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. Since then the number of confirmed cases has grown exponentially.

Symptoms include fever, coughing, sore throat, fatigue, and shortness of breath.

Due to the speed and scale of transmission, on 11 March 2020, the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic. However, WHO has continued to emphasise that it is a controllable pandemic; by implementing preventative measures, countries can work towards slowing or stemming a full outbreak.

Currently, Australia does not have widespread community transmission of COVID-19.  However, to help slow the spread, the Australian Government has implemented a number of initiative including:

  • Restricting organised, non-essential gatherings of more than 100 people, noting this is not extended to schools, colleges and universities;
  • Requiring anyone arriving in Australia from overseas to self-isolate for 14 days; and
  • Encouraging social distancing.

Further measures will likely be announced in the coming days and weeks.
