Coronavirus (COVID-19) update – Monday 21 December
The Victorian Government has announced further restrictions in response to the Greater Sydney COVID outbreak. 

In relation to our work at the market, the following applies:

Commercial Freight
Where a commercial freight operator (truck driver) entering the Melbourne Market has resided in, visited, been in, or travelled through a red zone or a hot zone since 11 December 2020;

– The individual must only leave the vehicle cabin to access toilet and bathroom facilities, to sign in to the site at Gate 1, or in an emergency situation.
– Where the individual leaves the vehicle cabin, they must wear a fitted face mask at all times.

At the Melbourne Market, we have all worked so hard to keep the market community safe and businesses operating through this pandemic. Transport across borders into the Market site poses a considerable risk to the safety of the market community. If you are working or interacting with truck drivers that you know have resided in, visited, been in, or travelled through a red zone or a hot zone, we ask you play your part and insist they wear a face mask and remain in the vehicle cabin while at the Melbourne Market.

All Market users
Anyone who has been in a red zone, a hot zone or other NSW exposure sites on or since Friday 11 December 2020 and is already in Victoria (even if you are showing no symptoms), should get tested and quarantine for 14 days from the date they left the hot zone. You must not visit the Melbourne Market.You can view the NSW exposure sites related to this outbreak on the website by clicking here.

Importance of Social Distancing
Now more than ever, the importance of adhering to social distancing rules is essential. You must remain at least 1.5 metres from other Market users wherever possible, and you should continue to carry a face mask with you at all times, and you put it on when you are not able to maintain social distancing. 
We thank those in the market community who continue to do the right thing.
