    Rockin Re: Coronavirus + Business + You

    From the ABC website blog:

    There are also no changes to mask-wearing restrictions.

    Here is what has changed:

    The 5-kilometre radius around the home will be increased to 10 kilometres

    Students in year 11 and year 12 will return to face-to-face learning, along with other students doing a Unit 3/4 VCE subject, or final year VCAL or IB qualification

    A number of outdoor jobs will be added to the authorised worker list, with up to five people allowed. These are: landscaping, gardening; maintenance, repairs, cleaning, including outside occupied premises; home renovations, solar panel installation; pamphlet and advertising delivery to outdoor mailboxes, and pet grooming mobile services


    Melburnians cannot travel to regional Victoria

    My reading of the latest changes as of today is that we in Victoria can go back to work. Doesnt specifically mention gardening, but I take it that we work solely outdoors and do outdoor maintenance work.

    services that operate solely outdoors where physical distancing can be maintained at all times. Permitted for up to five people (with an additional supervisor) for businesses with an ABN:
    * Outdoor maintenance, repairs, cleaning and other building work, including at occupied premises.
    * Home renovations and installations (outdoor only)
    * Home solar panel installations (only for outdoor work or in roof cavities with external access).

    It’s all about vaccinations and how fast we can hit the 70-80% target to get back to some sort of normality.

    I can see contractors in the future will need to be fully vaxed to get on site with strata corps, commercial props etc…I can see it coming.
