The Victorian authorities is about to announce the small print of more durable lockdown measures on Sunday afternoon.

Guardian Australia understands the premier, Daniel Andrews, will spell out the small print shortly after lunchtime on Sunday, however they don’t seem to be anticipated to incorporate a shutdown of public transport that has been mooted in some media reports.

The ABC’s Insiders program reported that the stage four lockdown was prone to embrace additional restrictions affecting shops, abattoirs and name centres, whereas eating places and cafes could be allowed to supply takeaway in the event that they abide by “strict contactless service provisions”. The ABC reported that there might be some restrictions on the operation of Uber and taxi providers – and that the more durable restrictions would apply past metropolitan Melbourne.
