Update

Restrictions will be eased again at 6 p.m. on October 29th as so many Victorians take steps to protect themselves and their community. For more information, see Victoria’s Roadmap.

The Victorian government will enact a new pandemic-specific part of the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008. For more information, see Laws to Establish Safe and Clear Responses to Pandemics.

Service Victoria has updated its app to include a new feature that notifies Victorians in the app when they have checked in at a Tier 1 exposure site listed on the coronavirus website. This new feature is another way Victorians can identify when they have visited a Tier 1 exposure site so they can isolate themselves faster to protect the community.

The Department of Health is working closely with NSW Health to respond to the increasing cases in the Albury Wodonga area. COVID-19 testing is available in Wodonga at the drive through at Albury Wodonga Health at 79 Vermont St and at the walk-in Wodonga Respiratory Clinic at 224-226 Beechworth Rd.
