Victoria’s Prime Minister Daniel Andrews says the national program calls for a targeted blockade to maintain the low viral status of larger groups.
Ballarat will enter a 7-day blockade after detection of COVID-19 cases.
“No one wants to make this decision. We support the people of Ballarat,” Andrews said.
“There is more business support that hasn’t expired since the previous announcement.
“Despite the fact that Ballarat has been open for a short period of time, we did not revise their business support, they are still paid, but there will be further announcements soon.”
