Victoria will reimpose stage three restrictions on 10 postcodes across Melbourne until at least July 29 in a bid to contain an “unacceptably high” number of new cases detected in the past few days.
The state’s Premier Daniel Andrews also announced a judicial inquiry into the management of hotel quarantine after a number of cases through late May and early June were linked to infection control breaches.
He has also requested that international flights be diverted from Melbourne for the next fortnight, to cut the number of arrived travellers who need to be housed in hotel quarantine.
