COVID-19 Update: new restrictions

The Victorian Government today announced the return of restrictions in Victoria to manage the recent cluster of COVID-19 cases.

From 6pm tonight, masks and gathering restrictions and rules are set to apply across Greater Melbourne, with the rules to ‘follow’ people leaving metropolitan Melbourne.

Apart from visitors from Greater Melbourne, our libraries and mobile libraries are unaffected by these changes. If you would like to wear a mask in our libraries, you are of course free to do so.

Find out more on our Coronavirus page.
