Hoax sign declares Melbourne beachgoers must be vaccinated
A fake sign purporting to be a Victorian Government notice has been spotted at a Melbourne beach, declaring only people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will be allowed to access the beach from tomorrow night.

The sign has been laminated and tied to a barrier at Seaford beach in Melbourne’s south-east.

The false notice, which incorporates Victorian Government branding, informs readers that Victoria Police can issue on-the-spot fines of up to $1817 to those who breached the ‘rules’.

When asked about the sign at today’s COVID-19 press conference, Minister for Government Services Danny Pearson said he was not aware of it.

“That is not something I am aware of. Happy to come back to you on that,” he said.

The Department of Health has since confirmed the sign is fake.

Unvaccinated people can continue to access Melbourne beaches after 11.59pm tomorrow.
