South Australia and Victoria set to end lockdown tomorrow

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews to end lockdown from tomorrow.

Both South Australia and Victoria are set to end their respective lockdowns tomorrow but with some restrictions still in place.

“We won’t be going back to directly where we were with the lowest level restrictions in the country,” said South Australian Premier Steven Marshall.

Victoria’s lockdown will see a return to dining in hospitality venues but visits between households would remain barred for another two weeks.

The Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) said the state should enable a fast exit from restrictions so business can resume.

“Every business understands that this is a health pandemic, and every business has a COVID-safe plan in place,” VCCI chief executive Paul Guerra said.

“Provided we all continue to QR code check-in, we should be able to accelerate out of lockdown five and hopefully get to a point where we can trade viably again.”
