Australia Covid live news update: ACT’s ‘freedom day’; Victoria’s essential workers face vaccine mandate deadline


ACT residents to enjoy eased restrictions as nine-week lockdown lifts; Victoria businesses to face massive fines if their unvaccinated workers are found on site

Hello everyone, it’s Matilda Boseley here and we made it to Friday. Just a little bit to go, we can do it!

So first up, a big congratulations to everyone reading this from the Australian Captial Territory. They have woken up this morning to their first day of freedom after the territory’s two-month lockdown ended at midnight last night.

It ensures the safest activities are recommencing and the riskiest ones will wait until more of the population are fully vaccinated.

The workers have often been in their jobs many years, they may be key people in the business...

Skilled and experienced employees are at a premium and some businesses are at their wits’ end trying to decide what to do.

These mandates, these requirements, push people to do what needs to be done.
