Member for Powlarth Richard Riordan says locals are exhausted from strict lockdown's whose costs are for many people greater than the benefits they deliver.

"After more than 12 months the Victorian Government must change its strategy to more closely reflect the more nuanced approaches used by other States, especially NSW,” Mr Riordan

“There is no equity in the decision to lock everyone down, if not everybody is affected by Covid,” he said.

Victoria is set to come out of lockdown at 11.59pm Thursday, although it's looking increasingly unlikely with cases rising in Melbourne.
