It's disappointing to be here again, but we're in a battle of attrition against a largely invisible enemy. It only takes a few people to be careless or ignore the rules for Delta to vector into a massive number of people. I've heard calls for a ring of steel around the metro, or around the western suburbs... but many people just see that as a challenge to find other roads to reach their destination. Our deprivations are nothing like wartime, and they're nothing like what would happen if we just let this thing run its course. Let's just sit home with our footy, Olympics or Netflix, and wait it out. If we apply enough discipline we'll win this round.

It's unfair that we have to be in lockdown too as we have no recorded cases up here but if we weren't part of the lockdown the people that got out of Melbourne last night and every time, we would very likely see cases popping up. If everyone was to stay home like we are asked and not treat it like a holiday then we wouldn't have to be in lockdown too. It's the people getting out of the city that locks us down so businesses up here while they rely on these people are also being shut by the same people.

Sadly Regional had to be included as it was the only way to stop Metro moving into Regional to avoid the lockdown.

Two of these cases were announced yesterday.

The Vic Health Department said, "The six new locally-acquired cases are all linked to previously reported cases and were not in quarantine during their infectious periods."
