Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews says there will be changes to red zone permits in the state and the only ones able to come from an interstate red zone will be authorised workers or on compassionate grounds.
“For four weeks, we have been saying to people from Victoria who are in Sydney and now in broader New South Wales, not the bubble but beyond the border bubble, we have been saying come home, come home because the rules may change,” he said.
Mr Andrews said the only people who will receive travel permits are “authorised workers and those who apply for and get a compassionate exemption” to the new rules and banned red zone travel for two weeks.
“What I cannot have happen is hundreds and hundreds of people who were warned weeks ago to get back here who have not done that.”
“I can’t keep having hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of Victorians coming back to Victoria while the situation further deteriorates and we see more and more cases.”
