Update Tue 27 July:

Following end of Lockdown 5.0 at 12 midnight tonight. club walking group activities can recommence (with masks), but almost all other regular activities  remain suspended until at least Wednesday 11 August.

Suspended activities include the Moorabbin Air Museum Tour, previously scheduled for Tuesday 10 August.

Because of the ability of the Delta strain to rapidly infect almost all people who meet inside each others homes  or in enclosed indoor restaurants (most famously Ms Frankies, with 43 infections from 40 seats) significant restrictions for this sort of activity are likely to persist until late 2021, especially for people in the vulnerable age group over 70 years.  Outdoor/semi-outdoor activities such as walks and barbecues will need to be prioritised.
