Appreciate the daily updates

Our recent Council meeting was a first for the City of Monash. It was before the Stage 4 lockdowns, but I made the call to switch to fully remote meetings instead of the hybrid model we’d previously used.

I had to be in the chamber myself for Goverance reasons, but all other Councillors and staff joined remotely via Zoom. It was a tough meeting to chair, and it felt eerily lonely, but it was a very real reminder of the seriousness of the challenge we’re all facing.

**Disclaimer: This information is compiled from the daily update that Council receives from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and may be out-of-date. For the most up to date information, please visit https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus **

Of the cases reported today 32 are linked to outbreaks or complex cases and 290 are under investigation. 
  
As of today, Victoria has 7,869 active cases and a total of 14,957 cases detected overall. There’s 640 people in hospital, 48 are in ICU.

There’s currently 91 active cases in Monash, which is a decrease of 6 cases since yesterday. We’ve seen a total of 205 total cases. Any variation in figures is understood to be part of the contact tracing reclassification.

DHHS has released data that breaks down the number of active cases by postcode. 
 
It’s important to note that these postcodes are where people live, not where they contracted the virus. The virus is everywhere and people should always assume that anyone, anywhere is carrying it and protect themselves accordingly in line with advice. The safest thing to do is to STAY HOME and under Stage 4, you cannot leave the 5km radius around your home.

It’s critically important to stay home whenever you can (we’ve switched to grocery deliveries to avoid shopping) but it’s also critically important to get outside in the fresh air.

Not only is physical activity good for you, it assists with avoiding mental health issues in what is, for all of us, a very stressful time.

We spent half an hour in the sunshine at Caloola Reserve yesterday after a short bike ride - thoroughly enjoyable!

Comment on Facebook It’s critically ...

I thought we weren’t allowed to go to ovals to play sport etc-it was just walking or running? Can you confirm please, cause my son would love to get his exercise kicking the footy around a local oval?

Could you please confirm if we are allowed at the local reserves and ovals playing football/soccer? I have read reports that this is not allowed?

Could you please just confirm If I can go to walk with my 3 kids it hard to go with one of them and since stage 4 started we haven’t go to the walk

I was under the impression we were not allowed to ‘have a kick’ at the local oval anymore as Dan Andrews said in his press conference? Are you able to clarify or confirm?
