2:34pm - 21 July, 2021

In line with the extended lockdown announced by the Victorian Government, details of which are available here, events and activities at Fed Square during the period of restrictions will be postponed or cancelled and the galleries, museums, cafes, restaurants and bars of the precinct will be closed to visitors until 11:59pm on Tuesday 27 July.

This announcement means that there are only five reasons for Victorians to leave their homes during this time: shopping for food and essential items; care and caregiving; daily exercise; to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, if eligible; and work — if you can’t do it from home. Businesses at Fed Square will also be required to adhere to restrictions, which means restaurants and cafes will need return to takeaway and delivery services only and museums and galleries must close.

Considering these reinstated restrictions, while Fed Square remains open as a thoroughfare we encourage anyone who can stay at home to stay at home.

Fed Square will continue to monitor this situation and provide further updates in coming days.
