Lockdowns imposed on Melbourne suburbs as Victoria records COVID-19 spike, QLD border to reopen, Australia death toll at 104

Stay at home orders will be imposed on 10 Melbourne postcodes in Melbourne’s north and west from tomorrow night because of “unacceptably high” rates of community transmission of coronavirus, Premier Daniel Andrews has said.

From 11.59pm tomorrow until July 24, Premier Andrews said people in the postcodes 3012, 3021, 3032, 3038, 3042, 3046, 3047, 3055, 3060, 3064 should only leave home for work, to provide care, to get exercise or to buy groceries.

He said anyone in these postcodes who was found outside their home without a reason would receive an on-the-spot fine.

Premier Andrews said the action was being taken in these postcodes to prevent the virus from spreading and the situation reaching a stage where “every postcode” had to be locked down.
