The Victorian authorities is set to announce the specifics of harder lockdown measures on Sunday afternoon.
Guardian Australia understands the leading, Daniel Andrews, will spell out the specifics shortly immediately after lunchtime on Sunday, but they are not predicted to include a shutdown of public transport that has been mooted in some media stories.
The ABC’s Insiders software reported that the stage 4 lockdown was most likely to include further limits affecting retail shops, abattoirs and contact centres, although restaurants and cafes would be authorized to provide takeaway if they abide by “strict contactless provider provisions”. The ABC reported that there could be some limits on the procedure of Uber and taxi services – and that the harder limits would implement beyond metropolitan Melbourne.
The federal education and learning minister, Dan Tehan, signalled on Sunday that the federal authorities would be supportive of further measures aimed at lowering local community transmission in Victoria.
