Former Red Zone – Parts of the regional NSWW and unlocked ACT – became the “Orange Zone” at 11.59pm.
This means that residents and non-residents of Victoria in those areas can come to the state on an orange zone passport.
According to the permit, they must be isolated within 72 hours of arrival and tested for COVID-19 and remain isolated until a negative test result is obtained.
Health Minister Martin Foley said the changes would make it easier for Victorians to return home and improve mobility between Victoria, NSW and AC.
“We are confident that the risks to the NSWS will continue to decline, and we want to make sure that we continue to monitor this,” Foley said Wednesday.
“If we need to make more changes on time, of course we will let everyone know.”
Meanwhile, it was revealed on Thursday that a number of teenagers attending a 16th birthday party in Victoria had tested positive for COVID-19 and that one was in the intensive care unit.
The party was attended by Year 10 students from St. Columba’s College, Essendon, northwest Melbourne, as well as students from two other regional schools.
Rita Grima, principal of St. Columba, sent a letter to families Wednesday reminding them of the limitations of social gatherings.
“It has come to my attention that a number of student meetings are being held to celebrate events such as the 16th birthday,” Ms. Grima said.
A collection of nature described to me is not currently allowed.
“It allowed me to understand that one young man who attended this party was in the intensive care unit.”
