Lockdown of 9 High Rise Public Housing Apartment Buildings

We became aware this afternoon that 9 public housing high rise apartment buildings will be quarantined as part of the response to covid-19.


Covid-19 is a highly infectious virus, and it does not discriminate based on income or housing tenure. However, overcrowded living conditions assist the virus to spread. We believe that if Victoria had more public housing, this would be less of an issue.


Throughout the pandemic we have been in close contact with officials from the Department of Health and Human Services, and we will continue this, so that we can provide up to date support and information to the tenants who contact us and to ensure the Government understands the needs of the people who are living under the hard quarantine rules.


We will be monitoring the situation closely.


We encourage any residents of the towers who are concerned to contact us, Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm on 1800 015 510. This is a free call. Alternatively, you can contact us here
