There will be virtually no COVID-19 rules in Victoria as the state hits a key benchmark, with Premier Daniel Andrews confirming the rules for mask, density, capacity and isolation will end before the weekend.

Victoria surpassed 88% double-dose vaccination coverage on Thursday and will reach 90% by the end of the weekend.

“We’re opening the place up and we’re going to keep it open,” Andrews said.

“Whether it’s 100,000 people at the CWM on Boxing Day, or a small group of people standing in their local pub drinking a beer, it’s the COVID-normal that every Victorian has built.”

The prime minister confirmed that as of 11:59 p.m. Thursday, there would be “almost no” rule across the state for those who are fully vaccinated.

Masks

Starting at 11:59 p.m. Thursday, masks will only be required in high-risk environments, but they will also need to be worn in retail stores for a few additional weeks.

Masks will also still be required for staff and visitors to primary schools and for students in grades 3 to 6, for public service workers in reception areas, in public transport and in vehicles. of carpooling.

They will also need to be worn in hospitals and on airplanes.

But masks will no longer need to be worn in offices or when entering cafes, bars and restaurants.

Andrews said the rules on masks will change again by December 15 and from that date they will no longer need to be worn in retail stores.

Density and capacity ceilings

In time for the weekend, capacity caps will drop for outdoor and home gatherings.

There will also be no more density caps for restaurants, cafes and bars.

Dance floors and nightclubs can finally reopen to fully vaccinated people and stand at the scene can return.

There will still be a mask requirement, density limits, and caps in place for weddings, funerals, and places of worship if participants’ vaccination status is not verified.

Insulation changes of close contacts

There is also an overhaul of the close contact COVID-19 isolation orders.

Currently, fully vaccinated people who are in close contact with a known case must self-isolate for seven days and it is 14 days for unvaccinated people, including children under 12 years old.

But under the new rules, close contacts who are fully vaccinated only need to self-isolate until they test negative if the close contact is not in their household.

Those who have a positive case in their household will have to self-isolate for seven days if they are vaccinated, or 14 days if they are not vaccinated.

A person who tests positive for COVID-19 will have to self-isolate for 10 days, four days less than the current rules.

While it’s already open, more changes are coming for retail purchases as well.

When 90% vaccine coverage is achieved, unvaccinated Victorians will no longer be allowed to shop in retail stores.

They will be able to shop at essential stores including supermarkets, drugstores and bottle stores.

This rule does not apply to people who benefit from an exemption or to children under 12 who cannot be vaccinated.

Increase in COVID cases on Thursday

Ahead of the announcement, Victoria saw another increase in COVID-19 cases, marking the first time the numbers were above 1,000 in five days.

On Thursday, the health department confirmed there were 1,007 new cases within 24 hours until midnight.

There have also been 12 other deaths linked to COVID-19.

The number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 in the state remains stable at 337.

The 2021 NFL regular season is underway and teams are starting to get into a routine with what happens in a typical game week. After coming out of a Sunday game, the Steelers are back to a regular week of preparation as head coach Mike Tomlin held his typical Tuesday press conference. With many players discussed, it’s time for another player mentioned by Coach Tomlin during his media time. Keep in mind that these are current players for whom a specific question was asked during the question-and-answer period.


Mason Rudolph

With Ben Roethlisberger on the reserve / COVID-19 list, alternate quarterback Mason Rudolph made his first start of the 2021 season. Coach Tomlin was asked what he thought of Rudolph’s performance more than what he said after the game, that he gave the Steelers a chance to win.

“He did a good job articulating the attack, communicating with the guys. The pace at which we want to work, he has been able to maintain it. We work fast some, we use the cadence as a weapon. He’s at the center of it. We had a few penalties and got five free yards and were able to attack them in the field thanks to his pace. His ability to communicate, not only within the game but between sets, to express his likes and dislikes, and to articulate what he saw was acceptable. His readings and the football cast were largely what we wanted. He sometimes stretched the ball on the pitch and gave us the opportunity to have them defend the pitch not only horizontally but vertically. If I could criticize him in any way I thought he could have been better from a precision standpoint in some cases to set up a run after. Putting the ball in ideal circumstances so that a guy in an apartment can win this flattering showdown, if you will, and things of that nature. But for the most part, it’s not the first rodeo for him, it’s not the first rodeo for him with us, and so I think none of us were surprised by the things that he was able to do for us. In fact, we expected it. I know he expected it. I think it was his tenth start for us now, so it’s not something to be embarrassing or worrying about. We just expect this guy to play winning football for us. “


Kendrick Green

In the Steelers’ three overtime practices, two were killed by turnovers while another was nearly a disaster due to Kendrick Green slamming the ball over Mason Rudolph’s head. Coach Tomlin was asked if this is something he needs to work on with Mason Rudolph this week.

“There is nothing to say on the same wavelength. Green just has to get off the snaps. It does not require a meeting. It does not require schematic adjustments. Some things are just basic, and when you train and play football at this level, sometimes you can do simple complex, or you can get too smart. No, we’re just gonna get this guy to kick the ball in a professional, competent manner and we’re gonna get on with our lives. We’re not going to put the quarterback in the middle and change our personality or our approach that way. It doesn’t require anything from Mason. Mason has a lot of work ahead of him getting ready to play the quarterback, and I think it’s reasonable to expect the center to execute shotgun shots on a consistent basis. Now he didn’t do that in the last game, so he needs to refocus his focus and do a good job there this week in preparation, but that won’t create any additional meeting or planning on our part. Just like we expect our guys to tackle better this week and we expect our guys to maintain possession this week. It won’t require additional meetings or additional focus points. It’s rooted in our culture. It is fundamental. And so, we’re going to come in with that understanding.


Minkah Fitzpatrick & Joe Haden

Two Steelers high school players who may not be available in Week 11 are security Minkah Fitzpatrick, who is on the reserve / COVID-19 roster, and cornerback Joe Haden, who left the game. last Sunday with a foot injury. Coach Tomlin was asked what he thinks about the depth behind these players.

“I will be in a better position to respond to this Sunday evening. But I still feel good in our group. If you have a chance to get us ready, whether or not we have Minkah or Joe Haden or others, you give us six days to get ready, I like our chances.

Coach Tomlin asked a follow-up question about who would be the next man for Minkah Fitzpatrick.

“As I mentioned, we haven’t met as defensive staff yet. I meet the defensive staff on Tuesday afternoons. I imagine it’s going to be a group discussion. As the replacement of Mike Hilton has been the business of several people. When you have big players, the multi-talented ones, that’s usually the case rather than putting the blame on one individual.

In a later question, Coach Tomlin was asked if he wasn’t counting on Fitzpatrick because there wasn’t enough time to clear the protocol.

“Correct, to my knowledge. But again, I don’t have the details. I just assume it is.


Tre Norwood and Miles Killebrew

If Minkah Fitzpatrick is still unable to erase the Covid protocol, the Steelers will likely take a ‘committee replacement’ approach. Coach Tomlin was asked about Tre Norwood and Miles Killabrew and if they fit into the equation.

“All are viable options, and we will consider them. “


Ben roethlisberger

Ben Roethlisberger missed his first game of the 2021 NFL season in Week 10. Coach Tomlin was asked if it was possible that Roethlisberger was cleared from Covid protocols too late to play in the game.

“I’m sure there are a lot of hypotheses that could change the discussion I’ve described. But fundamentally, logistically, the framework I’ve described is the mode we’re in, and we’ll cross those bridges when we get there. We have so many important decisions and days between now and then that we waste a lot of time thinking about assumptions. We are going to build a plan around Mason; this is what we are doing today. We have a working day tomorrow with our guys, which kind of starts the week off. This is what we intend to do tomorrow. We’re going to start weighing these things as the sand runs through the hourglass and we get closer to kickoff.

Coach Tomlin later asked about the interchangeability of Roethlisberger and Mason Rudolph in the offense.

“As I just mentioned, I also said that we had prepared the game for Ben last week and that Mason executed it. There aren’t a lot of significant differences. It’s not like Mason Rudolph was using 4.4 and all of a sudden we’re going to start doing race pass options and things of that nature. It’s not as big a discussion as you might imagine. probably more likes and dislikes or stuff related to the feel compared to the prospect of the post in the headset.

Coach Tomlin has been asked if Ben Roethlisberger will be able to participate in virtual meetings this week.

“100 percent. He was a full participant yesterday.


Joe schobert

Steelers linebacker Joe Schobert was at the center of some controversial comments after Sunday’s game when he twice mentioned that the Steelers need to take training seriously. Coach Tomlin was asked if it was Schobert who was a leader or if there was something more Tomlin would like to see in practice.

“I have no problem with the way we train and I’m sure Joe doesn’t. I’m sure he was just answering questions after a football game.
