Victoria's Premier Daniel Andrews is issuing a new Stay At Home order for metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire for 6 weeks.
Permissible reasons to leave home include:
* Shopping for essentials
* Daily Exercise
* AND work 'If you can't do it from home'
On the housing block towers under a hard lockdown Andrews says once the testing is complete the aim is to move the residents to the same stay at home conditions.
Andrews says not every car will be stopped to check cars leaving the Melbourne metropolitan area heading into regional Victoria - enforcement will be more along the lines of booze bus ops
Andrews says the reason for the SIX week lockdown versus four is that the virus' life-cycle is worth two weeks so four weeks data is not enough.
"Daniel Andrews let the COVID genie out of the bottle with hotel quarantine bungles and now everyone's paying the price for it."
