Mask mandates

Member’s Statement

Mr D O’BRIEN: This morning’s announcement of a further relaxation of mask and some other restrictions is a step in the right direction, but the government has not gone far enough. It is very clear that the omicron variant, while highly contagious, is not particularly virulent, and as a result both hospitalisation numbers and those needing ICU continue to fall. The government needs to give Victorians their lives back, and this drip-feed of restriction reductions once a week is ridiculous. Victorians have got vaccinated, they will take precautions as necessary, especially those at risk, and the rest of us want the government out of our lives.
