How many people can visit my home?
For now, Melburnians in single-person bubbles and intimate partners remain the only people who can visit someone else’s home.
From November 2, Melbourne households can host up to two people (plus their children) once a day. All single-person bubble and exclusive arrangements will be scrapped.
Do we still have to wear masks?
Yes you do whenever you leave the house, unless you have an exemption. Premier Daniel Andrews is yet to announce a date for the relaxation of mask rules, but it won’t be soon.
Can I sit in a restaurant or cafe?
Hospitality venues will be able to open from November 2. A maximum of 20 people will be allowed to sit indoors, while up to 50 could sit outdoors, subject to social distancing, council laws and density requirements. Group bookings will be capped at 10 people. Food courts will remain as takeaway and delivery services only.
What can I do for fun?
No official, organised outdoor entertainment will be allowed in Melbourne until November 2, when big outdoor venues with no seating – such as Melbourne Zoo – can reopen. Outdoor seated entertainment will also return then with a cap of 50 people or 25 per cent of the venue’s fixed-seat capacity. It is still unclear what this means for watching sports such as, say, a horse race on the first Tuesday in November.
