Beaches Closed

Late on Friday the City of Port Phillip (CoPP) announced that it was closing all beaches from 6pm Friday. Some key points from the announcement were:

"Mayor Bernadene Voss said this difficult decision was taken following large numbers of people gathering at both locations today, with many flouting social distancing rules."

"While people will still be able to access the beaches as a thoroughfare, such as for a run or walking a dog, the closure is aimed at beaches not being used as a gathering place during the COVID-19 crisis. Swimming is allowed at this stage, as long as social distancing and mass gathering rules are obeyed."

Further details can be found on the CoPP website.
