Victorians will face tougher restrictions on their movement under the state of disaster declared on Sunday.

Below is a list of the new restrictions that Premier Daniel Andrews announced on Sunday. This story will be updated with more detail as it becomes available.


There will be a curfew from today - 8pm to 5am with exemptions for work, caregiving, medical and compassionate reasons.


Maximum one hour daily within 5km of home, with one other person - no family/share house groups. There is an exemption for dependent children.

"Daily exercise is just that. It's an opportunity to get some exercise. It's not an opportunity to live our lives as if this pandemic was not real and not here," Mr Andrews said.

"When it comes to exercise, it's no longer three sets of tennis or a game of golf or any of that. It is staying close to home and only once per day and only one person. That is really very, very important as well.

"The whole issue of one hour really puts beyond doubt some of those recreational activities anyway because you simply wouldn't be able to conduct some of those things in an hour."


Only one person per household per day within 5km or closest supermarket.
