    Victoria has announced all of Greater Sydney and Wollongong will be classifed as red zones from 1.00am Friday.

    “I have to stress this is not the time for selfish behaviour. Anyone who puts the health and safety of the Victorian community at risk will be held to account by our authorities and that includes substantial fines.

    The travel advice is really clear. Do not fly into a red zone if you are from Victoria, and if you are not Victorian and you have been in a red zone that is come into effect, you cannot get a red zone permit to enter Victoria.” – Victoria’s Health Minister Martin Foley.
