Victoria State of Emergency extended to enforce hotel quarantine rules despite no new COVID cases

Victoria’s State of Emergency will be extended again despite more than a month without a new coronavirus case.

The State of Emergency allows the enforcement of Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton’s directions, including the hotel quarantine scheme.

It was last extended for four weeks on November 8.

However, with that due to expire on Sunday, Health Minister Martin Foley confirmed it would be extended.

He did not say for how long.
