The Koroit community is wading its way cautiously through the COVID-19 pandemic.
That is the assessment from the town's police leader, Sergeant Patrick Day.
"Since this second wave has hit people have certainly restricted their movements," Sergeant Day said.
"Especially older people, talking to those in that more vulnerable aged group, they are very much aware of the risks involved.
"If they don't have to go out then they're not, there is not as much social stuff going on and it is noticeable that there are less people getting around the town."
The second wave of the pandemic in Victoria is the latest challenge to face communities all over Victoria.
Sergeant Day said it had been a roller coaster ride since the pandemic hit in March.
"At the start when the stage three restrictions were in place it was obvious there were less people put and about," he said.
"People certainly understood the importance of the situation and the town reflected that.
"There was very little movement on the roads and the place was shut down very early each day.
"As the number of cases came down, people started to get out a lot more and it was moving very close to being back to normal again.
"But of course that has changed with the second wave hitting."
While Sergeant Day praised the town's residents for their law-abiding ways, one area remains a concern.
Over the past month, Koroit police have pulled over three drivers who recorded well over the legal limit of alcohol in their blood.
"That is a concern and very disappointing," Sergeant Day said.
"Some people obviously still think it's worth taking the chance to drink and drive.
"It is something we have to look at, maybe there still needs to be more education in the community about this important issue."
