Breaking camp

CAMPERS were back on the road for home last Friday (12 February) ahead of the latest travel restrictions and closure of the Mornington Peninsula Shire-run foreshore reserves.

Having avoided the peak-season hordes and setting up camp after the school holidays, the campers’ visions for a quiet break were brought to a sudden halt by the latest outbreaks of COVID-19 and Friday’s 11.59pm “circuit breaker restrictions”.

Once home, the campers are limited to the same rules applying to all other Victorians, leaving home for just four reasons: permitted work/study, essential shopping (within five kilometres of home), care or caregiving and exercise (two hours a day). Masks must be worn.
