The Victorian Government has announced a Circuit Breaker Lockdown Action from 11:59PM Friday 12 February to 11:59PM Wednesday 17 February.
Details of the lockdown can be found here.
The Victorian Government has advised that all residents must stay at home unless shopping for necessary goods and services, caregiving, essential work, education or exercise.
The Victorian Government has specified that financial institutions are an essential provider and includes those whose work is essential for the continued operation of an essential provider.
For valuer members, this will mean if valuation inspections are required for banks, you may leave your home to conduct them. Be mindful of the restrictions of visitors to homes and if you are not able to inspect a vacant property, refer to the API COVID-19 protocols.
Face covers must be carried at all times and must be worn indoors and outdoors, except if at home.
It is important to familiarise yourself with API COVID-19 protocols available at our COVID-19 Hub.
If you have any symptoms at all, get tested immediately and quarantine at home until you receive a negative result.
The API is continuing to liaise with the Victorian Government to ensure we can communicate with you on any changes that may affect your work. Stay safe.
