Australian State Lifts Many Corona Rules for Vaccinated People

The Australian state of Victoria, to which the metropolitan city of Melbourne belongs, will lift many corona measures from Friday for people who have been vaccinated against the virus.


That is possible, according to regional Prime Minister Daniel Andrews, now that nearly 90 percent of the population from the age of 12 has been fully vaccinated.

Vaccination is necessary to gain access to, for example, clothing stores, gyms, hairdressers and libraries. Residents must also be vaccinated before visiting restaurants and cafes. Anyone who has not had their shots can only pick up in the catering industry. In addition, Victoria says goodbye to the maximum group size.

The corona measures in the southeastern state are gradually being relaxed as vaccination rates rise. It’s an “amazing achievement” to be able to resume everyday life for most people, Andrews said. However, not all restrictions are lifted. A measure that will remain, for example, is the obligation to wear a face mask in shops, care homes and in public transport.

Australia has strict rules for people who have not been vaccinated against Covid-19. In the future, only fully vaccinated Australians will be able to leave the country without special permission. This group will also be excluded from the mandatory two-week quarantine upon return.
