Australian Schools and Coronavirus – Stage 4 Lock Down For Victoria – 2nd of August 2020

Following weeks of climbing Covid-19 infection rate in the Victoria over the last few weeks despite the implementation of stage 3 lockdown means harsher restrictions have been implemented. There are measures such as 5km movement limit from home, nightly curfew etc. From coming Wednesday all Victorian students will be on remote learning, this including both metropolitan and regional area. Schools will still open for children of essential works or special needs etc. Currently, year 11 and 12 students in Victoria metropolitan area which essentially is the greater Melbourne will shift from face to face teaching to remote learning as well.

With announced six-week stage 4 lockdown, the entire Victorian school term 3 will pretty much be conducted remotely. In NSW, my children’s school still do not perform any assemblies and all excursions, camps etc are cancelled as well. Parents are not allowed on the school ground as well.

Australia wide there are a total of 17895 confirmed infections today and an increase of 687 which is equivalent to 3.99% from yesterday. Victoria counted 97.67% of the new Covid-19 infection for today in Australia.
