SafetyNet 581

Welcome to the June 23 edition of SafetyNet.  

We have had several days of zero locally acquired cases, and so Victoria's COVID restrictions will be further eased later this week. This means it is likely that more workers will be returning to work. The VTHC stresses that workplace measures must remain in place and that COVID Safe plans are followed.  

Of concern though, is that there has now been an outbreak in Sydney and, unlike Victoria, the government is very hesitant to introduce restrictions, with masks being made mandatory only in the past few days.
