Ballarat will exit its seven day lockdown on Wednesday night, however some restrictions remain.

“The public health team feel they have the outbreak contained and thanks to the extraordinary efforts of the residents who came out in droves to get tested and followed lockdown rules. My thanks to the entire community of Ballarat,” Deputy Premier James Merlino said during a media conference on Wednesday.

“The five reasons to leave home will no longer apply and the settings in Ballarat will align with those of regional Victoria not in lockdown however there is still public health restrictions in place, masks must still be worn indoors and outdoors. No-one can come to your home to visit. 

“Getting tested and vaccinated is just as important as ever.

“Again, I want to pass my thanks to Ballarat for doing the right thing and helping us chase down this outbreak. We must do what we can to help protect these areas.”
