Border bubble tightens


FOLLOWING recent directions from the Victorian chief health officer last week, residents in the Victoria-NSW border bubble can now only enter Victoria without a permit for essential reasons, including:

necessary goods and services, including medical care; care and compassion­ate reasons; work (paid, voluntary, charitable or for religious purposes);

education (including childcare or early childhood services); getting a COVID-19 vaccinatio­n or test; organised/community sport and exercise; visiting an intimate partner; moving house, inspecting a property or attending an auction;

driving someone who cannot drive themselves for an above reason.

Existing exceptions to obtaining a permit will continue to apply.

Exceptions to the permit system allow a person to enter Victoria for certain reasons, including in emergencie­s or if they are escaping family violence.
