Victorian Health Minister Martin Foley says the state will take a cautious approach to reopen towards the end of October despite high cases of COVID-19.
“We want to make sure that we take the careful, cautious, but sustained steps to reopen,” Mr Foley said.
“That is what the Victorian roadmap to deliver the national plan for reopening is all about. What we have to do is navigate our way between two very tricky processes.
“On the one hand, deliver the national plan to reopen at 70 and 80 per cent double dose as gateways that we navigate our way through.
“We are more than hopeful, but we know that the challenges in that system will be very real.”
