- Genoa - Wednesday 17 February, 10.00am
 -Wairewa - Wednesday 17 February, 2.30pm

The decision to postpone these meetings was difficult but reflects the advice of public health experts, that the whole of Victoria will move to ‘circuit-breaker action’ from 11:59pm tonight until 11:59pm on Wednesday, 17 February.

The Inspector-General will do everything possible to make alternative arrangements for these six community meetings and details once available will be made accessible through our website www.igem.vic.gov.au, and promoted through, Facebook (@IGEMVictoria) and Twitter (@IGEM_Vic).
