Victoria to go into Stage 4 lockdown from Wednesday

Victoria is set to be plunged into strict Stage 4 restrictions from WEDNESDAY in a bid to drive down soaring cases of coronavirus – with restaurants, cafes, high schools and nearly all shops expected to close

Victoria is expected to go into strict Stage 4 lockdown from Wednesday after initial attempts to control a deadly second wave failed. 

The state is set to close all but essential businesses and send high-school students back to learning from home. 

They will be the harshest restrictions that Australia has seen and will be similar to the lockdown imposed by New Zealand. 

The announcement is expected on Sunday and will see nearly all cafes, restaurants and shops closed for a further six weeks, The Australian reported.
