Favourite relative No.2 just dropped dead, and suddenly no direct flights into Tulla, so have to bounce through Brizzy & Sydney, to land at bloody Avalon 8 hours later, do the same thing on return, and then 14 days of quarantine back here.

....think I might just send flowers instead.
Hey Stig, sorry for your loss. This really sucks.

Sorry to hear that Numb3rs, sh*t news at any time, worse when options are taken out of your hands.

Working at Anglesea last night and normally on the GOR going through the town between 11-11:30 you might be lucky to see 3-4 cars pass by.

Last night thee would have been 50-60 go through.

Not back to Melbourne direction though, the other way. All these Melbourne people fleeing out into regional Vic.

Speaking to a local retailer yesterday that they had been contacted twice and told by people in the know that the lockdown will be 2 weeks, apparently it’s already been signed off on, guess we will find out tomorrow...

Dan explained today that he also locked regional Victoria to remove the incentive of Melbournians who are potentially carrying the virus to escape to regional areas last Friday afternoon when the announcement was made.
Now that we are locked in he may release the shackles of regional people first and keep Metro Melb locked for a few more days.

I feel like he may extend the 5km radius to maybe 25km.
Not sure he'll do much more tomorrow.
He'll want minimal movement over the weekend, and maybe from Monday he'll ease restrictions further.

I would be wary of some of this stuff, in Perth there were rumours of scores of confirmed cases the day after lockdown and guaranteed month long hard lockdowns and none prove to be true.

Well that's a joke. They were flooding down out off Melbourne highway down onto the coast last Friday.

Yes anything is possible, I’ve been curious from when we went into lockdown again why only the five days?
personally I’ve discussed with family and friends that timeframe just seemed a little unusual and thought it would be extended...
Anyway just passing on what was told too me, quicker the better but wouldn’t surprise me at all if it was extended...

We went into an immediate five day hard lockdown for the purposes of stopping any further communitry transmission and getting all people who attended contamination sites tested. From there they extended the lockdown to a partial lock down (i.e small events, dining etc) for another week, but that was largely driven by our 0 subsequent cases mark.

I would expect you'll stay in harsh lockdown for 5 days and then proceed to a staged decrease from there. I wouldn't expect it to be another period of "hard" lockdown with the low numbers you have (which i understand are 1 - 2 per day) but probably an increase to the next "stage" until Monday next wek, followed by maybe another "stage" increase for a week, followed by a return tonormal i you revert back to 0 cases.

i'm not sure what "stages" they use in Melbourne, but it may be something like, 2 guest permitted at your house but no dining out, followed by 20 person events and dining at the next "stage" etc.
