Alcohol and COVID-19: Supporting healthy and safe Victorian communities

It’s never been more important to support individuals, families and their communities to be healthy and safe. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic the alcohol industry has rapidly pivoted its marketing strategies to push alcohol use at home on vulnerable people in isolation.

Alcohol use makes people more vulnerable to COVID-19, worsens negative mental health impacts of social isolation, and fuels violence in Victorian homes. Increases in alcohol use during the pandemic may lead to more people developing long-term health conditions such as heart disease, liver disease and cancer.

Now more than ever, effective alcohol policies are needed to keep individuals, families and communities safe and well.
