Those measures were already in force in the city Melbourne
itself, but a curfew will be added from tonight at 8 p.m. local time. You may then no longer come out unless for compelling reasons and that until five in the morning. During the day residents are still allowed outside, but only if necessary and walking, cycling or shopping must be done within a radius of five kilometers. Cafes, bars, restaurants, gyms and the like are being closed for the time being. Curfew would last six weeks, the end date is set for September 13.
Melbourne residents take no chances. Today, long lines are reported to the supermarkets and there is a lot of hoarding.
