Anyone caught trying to flee Melbourne’s lockdown will face $4957 fine

From 11.59pm on Wednesday, regional Victoria will move to step three in the government’s road map.

Mr Nugent said if it multiple people are caught leaving metro Melbourne together they would all be fined the full amount and told to go home.

Police will be increasing their patrols of checkpoints, particularly during the school holidays, to catch anyone from metro Melbourne trying to holiday in the regions.

There will also be increased patrols of caravan parks and boat ramps and police will be checking all cars towing caravans or boats.
