You can say that again. Two hours of exercise per day, with one other person if you like, within 5 km of your house(s). Might need to wear a mask? Now compulsory for indoors and outdoors, except at home.

The page you are referring to are the "current" restrictions, that is today Thursday 27/5. I was referring to the restrictions starting from midnight tonight and for the next week.

The mask subsection clearly indicates exercise is an exception.

You do not need to wear a face mask while exercising, if you are out of breath
Do you know if we have to wear a masking while exercising outdoors, ie, running?

-The Masked Runner
Good question my friend.

Here is the answer from the Victorian government:

You do not need to wear a face mask when exercising if you are out of breath or puffing. You must carry a face mask with you at all times unless you have a lawful reason not to.


;) Ride harder!

The wife and I were driving down to Essendon and Beaumaris to attend Brother-in-law's 70th birthday on Sunday 13th June and to stay at my Dad's for a few nights.

Guess what............ We're NOT coming........ Bugger.

PS: Dad and Carol hopefully will be flying up here in mid August, if Covid is back under control........ But who knows.
