Regional Victorian LGA goes into sudden lockdown with hours' notice

A regional LGA in Victoria’s east has been plunged back into lockdown overnight with just a few hours’ notice.

The City of Latrobe in Gippsland entered a seven-day lockdown from 11.59pm yesterday, with the same restrictions as in metropolitan Melbourne, minus the curfew.

The decision came about 6.30pm after four cases were confirmed in the LGA yesterday afternoon.

According to the government, the cases will be recorded in today’s official numbers.

There are now 18 known cases in the LGA.

Residents will not be able to leave the City of Latrobe area other than for limited reasons, such as authorised work and permitted education, care and compassionate reasons, visiting an intimate partner, and necessary goods and services if they can’t be obtained locally.

Acting Chief Health Officer Professor Ben Cowie said it was vital the government protected the local community and the rest of regional Victoria from significant outbreak.

Locals are asked to be on high alert for symptoms and get tested if any develop.
