Premier announces schools to close from Tuesday
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has announced a range of measures this afternoon to attempt to control the spread of COVID-19, including the closure of schools across the state from Tuesday.

Schools will be open as usual tomorrow, Monday 23rd March, but the Easter school holidays will begin early from Tuesday.

At the time of writing, we are awaiting statements from the three Dimboola schools.

The Premier’s statement appears below in full.
I will inform National Cabinet tonight that Victoria will proceed over the next 48 hours to implement a shutdown of all non-essential activity across our state to combat the spread of Coronavirus.

This is not something that we do lightly, but it’s clear that if we don’t take this step, more Victorians will contract coronavirus, our hospitals will be overwhelmed and more Victorians will die.

Victorians will still be able to go to the supermarket, the bank, the pharmacy and other essential stores, like petrol stations and convenience stores. Freight, logisitics and home delivery are also considered essential and will remain open.

I will also inform National Cabinet that school holidays will be brought forward in Victoria, starting on Tuesday 24 March.

All measures to be implemented by Victoria are consistent with the health advice provided by the Victorian Chief Health Officer.

The decision whether to re-open schools after the Term 1 holidays will likewise be determined following advice from the Chief Health Officer.

I will have more to say on these measures tomorrow morning.

Daniel Andrews
