Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has announced that household gatherings will be reduced from 30 to 15, from 11:59PM on Wednesday, following a positive Coronavirus case in a hotel quarantine worker.
Masks will also be mandatory in all public indoor spaces.
Melbourne’s return to work, at 75% of capacity, which was due for Monday, has now been paused and will stay at 50% for the private sector and 25% for the public sector.
The Premier said that the worker could have a mutant strain of the virus and for the safety of the community, it is best to play it safe and bring back some restrictions.
