Victoria has recorded one new case of coronavirus since yesterday. The new case is a man in his 40s in hotel quarantine.
There are no new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in Victoria. This is the 18th consecutive day where Victoria has recorded no new locally acquired cases of coronavirus.
The number of active cases in Victoria is 30, made up of one locally acquired case linked to the Black Rock restaurant cluster, no change since yesterday, and 29 cases in travelers in hotel quarantine, a decrease of three since yesterday.
As announced on Friday, changes to the ‘traffic light’ travel permit zones in New South Wales and Queensland are now in effect.
Only one Local Government Area (LGA) – Cumberland in Greater Sydney – remains as a red zone.
If you have been in the Cumberland LGA in the past 14 days, other than for transit, you cannot enter Victoria without an exemption, exception, Specified Worker Permit or Freight Worker Permit.
Greater Sydney, Wollongong and Blue Mountains are orange zones. Anyone who is now in an orange zone and meets the permit criteria can now apply for an Orange Zone Permit. Travel from an orange zone requires people to self-isolate, get tested within 72 hours of arrival and remain in quarantine until they receive a negative result.
Greater Brisbane and regional New South Wales, excluding Wollongong and Blue Mountains, has changed from an orange zone to a green zone.
Travel from a green zone requires people to watch out for and get tested if they have any symptoms at all.
Travellers must also confirm they have not been in the remaining red zone of Cumberland within the past 14 days (other than for transit), have not been in close contact with a coronavirus case and do not have any symptoms.
Exemption applications are no longer required for those LGAs being downgraded to an orange zone – unless people have also been in a red zone in the last 14 days.
