Get your car fuelled up, Victoria… From Friday, Melburnians will be able to leave the city for the first time since July. Residents across the state will come under the same COVID rules when a fully vaccinated rate of 80% is hit at the end of this week with Premier Daniel Andrews announcing a significantly expanded “vaccinated economy” yesterday. What the what? Essentially, to participate in society – to be able to go to work, socialise, attend events – Victorians aged 16yo and older have to be vaccinated. Once 90% of Victorians aged 12 and above have been vaccinated in about a month, everything opens up. That’s why Andrews is “very confident” that 80,000 will be able to attend day one of the Boxing Day Test at the MCG. Can you imagine… But he says restrictions for unvaccinated Victorians will remain in place into next year. Also opening up: Tassie. Its set to welcome vaccinated interstate and international arrivals from 15 December.
