ISKCON Melbourne Statement

Re. State of Emergency Self Isolation Directive for Returning Travellers


Dear Devotees,


Perhaps some of you are unaware that from midnight on Sunday 15 March, everyone entering Australia from overseas has been required to self-isolate for 14 days.


People must not leave the premises where they are self-isolating except for the purpose of obtaining medical care or supplies; in any other emergency situation; or in circumstances where it is possible to avoid close contact with other persons. They also cannot allow visitors into their home. The penalty for failing to comply is a fine of up to $20,000.


As a Temple, we are following the Government’s directives to limit the spread of coronavirus to protect devotees and members of our wider community.


We applaud those who are voluntarily complying with this Victorian State of Emergency directive for returning travellers.


If you fail to self-isolate, please be aware that you are potentially endangering the community and may be reported to the police.


If you have questions about what you should do if you or your family-member returned from overseas before or after midnight, Sunday March 15, please read these guidelines.
