Factsheet: Your rights in full lockdown – Jul 2020

The full lockdown in place in some public housing in inner Melbourne is an urgent and temporary measure to protect the health of residents and the wider community during the COVID-19 pandemic. During full lockdown, your right to come and go freely may be restricted for a limited time, but the government must continue to respect your other rights. This factsheet explains the rights of residents during full lockdown.

The factsheet is currently available in English, Amharic, Arabic, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Somali, Tigrinya and Vietnamese, with audio recordings in Dinka, Nuer and Oromo.
