Title
COVID-19 Conspiracy Theorist Behaviour
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council the fact that Victoria is facing the worst pandemic in 100 years due to COVID-19. The Chief Health Officer has issued stay at home orders and state-wide lockdowns which have been implemented to assist in slowing the spread of the virus.

However, syndicates of conspiracy theorists have continuously flaunted the rules, spread misinformation and published their escapades online while the virus grows in numbers and puts Victorian’s at risk of death. Victoria Police and other public servants have worn the brunt of the ideocracy from these conspiracy theorists. Their actions affect the health of all Victorians.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to enforce penalties for blatant breaches of COVID-19 restrictions and consider implementing stricter legislation in relation to conspiracy theorist behaviour.
