Victoria information 1608 new Covid-19 cases

Victoria has recorded 1608 new coronavirus situations and two fatalities on Boxing Working day.

On Xmas Day, Victoria recorded 2108 new Covid-19 scenarios and six deaths.

Victorians had an indoor mask mandate released on Friday in response to the speedy distribute of the Omicron variant within just the local community and across Australia.

People as young as eight are necessary to wear one particular in all indoor options except for non-public homes.

It was also recommended that hospitality venues adhere to seated service and men and women function from home if able to.

When introducing the harder limits, chief well being officer Brett Sutton explained reintroducing masks would have a “terrific affect on transmission”.

“Please bear that in mind. Mandating putting on masks indoors, with the usual exceptions, is definitely vital,” he claimed.

Much more to come.
