Melbourne Residents On Stay At Home Orders As Victoria Imposes Further Postcode Lockdowns As COVID-19 Cases Rise
MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - JULY 05: Medical staff wearing PPE holding material about to walk into the Flemington Public housing flats on July 05, 2020 in Melbourne, Australia. Nine public housing estates have been placed into mandatory lockdown and two additional suburbs are under stay-at-home orders as authorities work to stop further COVID-19 outbreaks in Melbourne. The public housing towers will be in total lockdown for at least five days following a high number of positive coronavirus cases recorded in residents on those estates. The towers will be closed and contained, and the only people allowed in and out will be those providing essential services. Police will be placed on each floor of the towers and other police will control access points to the estates. Residents of 12 Melbourne hotspot postcodes are also on stay-at-home orders and are only able to leave home for exercise or work, to buy essential items including food or to access childcare and healthcare. Businesses and facilities in these lockdown areas are also restricted and cafes and restaurants can only open for takeaway and delivery. (Photo by Asanka Ratnayake/Getty Images)
