0

2020年12月20日 州长 安德鲁斯  企鹅新闻网

维多利亚州政府今天将制定新措施,保护我们的州免受新冠肺炎的传播。

根据最新信息,新冠肺炎当前在新南威尔士州的暴发与返回该州的酒店检疫计划的旅行者有关。但是,令人担忧的是,缺乏传播链的源头情况,病例数和暴露地点持续增长。

整个悉尼没有强制性的口罩命令和居家令,使得我们对局势充满担忧。

因此,从今晚11:59 pm开始,大悉尼地区和中央海岸将被指定为“红色区域”。这意味凡是自2020年12月11日起居住过这些社区或访问过这些社区的人们,不许进入维多利亚。发现来自该区域的任何人试图违反此命令进入维多利亚将受到14天强制性酒店隔离。

最近访问过或目前在大悉尼和中央海岸的维多利亚人,须在12月21日星期一11:59之前返回家园。

返回者必须在维多利亚服务网站上注册豁免,然后在回到维州后24小时内接受测试,接着,他们必须在家中隔离14天。将会进行跟进检查。

北部海滩地区也将被提升为“热区”。仍在北部海滩地区逗留的维多利亚人须遵循新南威尔士州首席卫生官在家中停留的命令,并且将不允许返回维多利亚州。

新南威尔士州的其他地区仍是绿色区域,但这些地区的居民仍需要申请并获得进入维多利亚州的有效许可证。

那些住在边界附近地区的人不需要许可证,而是可以使用他们的驾照,作为往返维多利亚和新南威尔士州的护照。

维多利亚警察局将部署多达700名成员,在维多利亚州和新南威尔士州建立更多的检查站

新南威尔士边境以确保仅持有许可证的人,边境社区的居民或有资格的人豁免可以进入维州。他们将得到SES和其他紧急服务的支持人员的支持,维多利亚州已要求澳大利亚国防军提供后勤支持,以支持建立和检查站。

维多利亚州一侧边界地区的地方政府区域是:阿尔卑斯,贝纳拉,本迪戈,布鲁克,Campaspe,东吉普斯兰,Gannawarra,靛蓝,罗登,米尔杜拉,莫伊拉,谢珀顿,天鹅山,陶旺,Wangaratta,Wodonga和Yarriambiack。新南威尔士州LGAs是:奥尔伯里市,巴拉兰德,贝加谷地,贝里根,布罗肯希尔,爱德华河,联邦,大休姆,干草,洛克哈特,默里河,穆伦比基,斯诺伊莫纳罗,斯诺伊山谷,瓦加·瓦加和温特沃斯。

首都地区政府正在进行讨论,这将为堪培拉和首都地区的居民提供信息同时还确保我们能阻止来自大悉尼,北部海滩和中央海岸的旅行者从堪培拉机场乘飞机进入维多利亚。

被发现未经有效许可证或豁免而进入维多利亚州的任何人,可能会受到超额罚款1,652澳元,并且如果您有意在许可申请中提供虚假信息,则可能会被处以罚款,罚款$ 1,652,或最高罚款$ 9,913。

我们知道这些保护措施在圣诞节和新年前对许多家庭产生重大影响,但是我们相信这些措施对于确保我们州的安全必不可少。我们将继续评估局势的发展。有关许可证制度的更多信息,将在维多利亚服务网站上找到。

州长丹尼尔·安德鲁斯说:“就像其他州对我们关闭边界一样,这些决定并不容易,但有必要。”“我们知道,在圣诞节临近之际,让家人分开是一个特别困难的问题。但是维多利亚人已经放弃了太多,以至于不得不认真对待此事”

“新南威尔士州政府没有采取重大行动来减慢病毒的传播,因此我们相信这些措施是确保维多利亚州安全的必要条件。”

 

FURTHER MEASURES TO PROTECT VICTORIA

The Victorian Government will today enact new measures to protect our state from the spread of coronavirus

(COVID-19).

Based on the most up-to-date information available, the current outbreak in New South Wales is linked to a

returned traveler in that state’s Hotel Quarantine program. However, concerningly, there remain missing links in

the chains of transmission and case numbers and exposure sites continue to grow.

Without mandatory mask rules and stay at home orders across Sydney, our Government and state’s health

authorities do not have confidence that the situation remains safe.

It’s why from 11:59pm tonight, the Greater Sydney area and the Central Coast will be designated as a ‘red zone’.

That means people who live in these communities, or have visited these communities since 11 December 2020,

cannot enter Victoria. Anyone from this zone found trying to enter Victoria in breach of this order will be subject

to 14-day mandatory hotel quarantine.

Victorians who have recently visited or are currently in Greater Sydney and the Central Coast, other than those in

the Northern Beaches area, will be given until 11:59 Monday 21 December to return home.

Those returning must register for an exemption on the Service Victoria website and then get tested within 24 hours

of returning to our state. They must then self-quarantine for 14 days at home. Follow up checks will be undertaken.

The Northern Beaches area will also be elevated to a ‘hot zone’. Victorians in the Northern Beaches area remain

subject to the NSW’s Chief Health Officer’s stay at home orders and will not be permitted to enter Victoria.

The rest of regional New South Wales remains a green zone, but residents in these areas will still need to apply for

and receive a valid permit to enter Victoria.

Those living in local government areas along the border will not need a permit but will instead be able to use their

driver’s license as a passport to travel between Victoria and New South Wales.

Victoria Police will deploy up to 700 membersto establish additional checkpoints along the Victorian and New South

Wales border to ensure only people with permits, residents in border communities or those with eligible

exemptions are able to cross into our state. They will be supported by the SES and other emergency services

personnel and Victoria has requested logistical support from the Australian Defence Force to support the

establishment and management of the check points.

 

The local government areas in the border zone on the Victorian side are: Alpine, Benalla, Bendigo, Buloke,

Campaspe, East Gippsland, Gannawarra, Indigo, Loddon, Mildura, Moira, Shepparton, Swan Hill, Towong,

Wangaratta, Wodonga and Yarriambiack.

The NSW LGAs are: Albury City, Balranald, Bega Valley, Berrigan, Broken Hill, Edward River, Federation, Greater

Hume, Hay, Lockhart, Murray River, Murrumbidgee, Snowy Monaro, Snowy Valleys, Wagga Wagga, and

Wentworth.

Discussions are underway the ACT Government and these will inform how residents from Canberra and the ACT

are treated whilst also ensuring we stop travellers from Greater Sydney, Northern Beaches and the Central Coast

entering Victoria by taking flights from Canberra Airport.

Anyone found to have entered Victoria without a valid permit or exemption, may be subject to penalties in excess

of $1,652 and if you intentionally provide false information on your permit application, you may be issued a fine of

$1,652 or face a penalty of up to $9,913.

We know these safeguards will have a big impact on many families ahead of Christmas and the New Year, but we

believe these measures are integral to keeping our state safe.

We will continue to assess the situation as it evolves. More information about the permit system will be made

available on the Service Victoria website.

Quotes attributable to the Premier Daniel Andrews

“Just as when other states closed their borders to us, these decisions are not easy, but they are necessary.”

“We know keeping families apart is an especially hard ask this close to Christmas. But Victorians have given up too

much for us not to take this seriously.”

“Withoutsignificant additional action to slow the spread of the virusin New South Wales, we believe these measures
