During the press conference, Victorian Health Minister Martin Foley said the government had no plans to change which areas are subject to lockdown orders.
“There are no plans to change the definition of Greater Melbourne for purposes of public health orders,” he said.
He said Victoria was not considering geographical or local government closures because they had not worked.
He said to look at Sydney as an example.
“Just look north to Sydney, at what happens when decisions are made that are based on geographies and local government,” he said.
“It doesn’t quit in the geographic areas… it is the nature of the surrounding communities that are part of that. So there are no plans to change that and the alternative is what is happening, to the inevitable creep that we have seen in NSW.”
