Support during Victoria's 5 day Lockdown

Posted on Feb 12, 2021

Earlier today, the Victorian Premier announced Stage 4 restrictions for all of Victoria commencing at 11.59pm tonight 12 February 2021 until 11.59pm Wednesday 17 February 2021. You can find the full announcement from the Victorian Government here.

This unfortunately means that many sectors in the building and construction industry will not be permitted to operate during the 5 day lock down period.

Incolink is here for you during this difficult time.
