What the locations are

There may be different locations where COVID-19 lockdowns, hotspots or movement restrictions apply in Victoria. There are also different payment periods.

Recognised Victoria locations

These are the recognised Victoria COVID-19 locations:

The location that applies to you depends which Local Government Area (LGA) you live or work in or visited. You can check which LGA applies to you on the Victorian Government website.

You may also be eligible if both of these apply:

  • you visited one or more of the locations during the relevant periods
  • you were then subject to a restricted movement order.
Next: How much you can get

The COVID-19 Disaster Payment is $200 each week if you get an eligible income support payment. You’ll get this amount on top of your regular payment.
