Today was a big day around Victoria as Grade Prep, 1 and 2 students went back to school as well as Year 11, 12 and VCAL students.

Some shops are beginning to open with strict social distancing rules. Footy starts back soon, albeit a changed format and no crowds. Things are ‘starting’ to feel like normal.

With just 3 cases in Moorabool since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we should be proud of ourselves.

Despite only reporting 3 cases, last week, The Queensland government declared Moorabool a COVID-19 hotspot due to the proximity with the Cedar Meats outbreak.

Snipet from the DHHS Media Release today.

“While encouraging, we need to remain vigilant. It is increasingly important that we stay at home when unwell and get tested, wash our hands regularly, sneeze and cough into our elbow and maintain physical distancing.”

“These are common sense actions to ensure we don’t create a second wave of this serious disease, as we have seen in other countries once they have eased their stringent regulations.”
