Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has instructed Victorians not to visit loved ones or partners who live at a different place of residence, asking them to consider whether making social calls is “worth a life”.
“That’s not work. That’s not care-giving. That’s not medical care. That’s not shopping for the things you need – it does not comply with the rules so people should not do that,” Mr Andrews said.
The Premier acknowledged he was “asking a lot of Victorians” but said such visits risked the spread of COVID-19.
