From 6pm Tuesday 25 May within metropolitan Melbourne:
- public gatherings will be limited to 30 people
- face masks will need to be worn indoors, unless an exemption applies. The face mask requirement applies to everyone aged 12 years and older, and includes indoor workplaces and secondary schools.
- and private gatherings in the home will be limited to five visitors per day
Schools and workplaces will remain open with the current restrictions that are in place. Depending on the workplace, this includes COVIDSafe measures and in some cases, a density requirement. There are no changes to existing density rules.
Due to the current circumstances, there will be a pause on the move to remove the density quotient in outdoor spaces and venues to a maximum of 200 people in spaces smaller than 400 sqm. Timing for this easing will be reassessed when public health advice indicates it is appropriate to do so.
The Public Health Advisory Panel will provide advice as soon as possible to upcoming Tier 1 and Tier 2 events if any modifications will be required for the event to proceed.
