I don’t see why public gatherings in country Victoria, especially outdoors, have to be limited to 10 people. All new cases are in Melbourne, we didn’t have a case in SW Victoria for three months, despite a massive testing blitz in May.
An outdoor gathering in the country, out in open space and fresh air, with more than 1.5 m distance between people is far less risky than shopping in a large shopping centre where people are in close proximity and air conditioners are circulating droplets for hours!
