Organisation based outbreaks totals include contacts as well as employees/residents/staff/students of that location/business.

Last week, we announced that face coverings would be mandatory in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire. Today, we announced that same requirement will apply across regional Victoria.

That means from Sunday 2 August at 11:59pm, a face covering will be mandatory whenever you leave home – wherever you live.
