The Victorian Government has announced that most COVID-19 restrictions have been removed.

Changes will include:

  • Patrons will no longer be required to have two doses or show their vaccination status before entering any venue. Check-in using the Service Victoria app will also end.
  • Face masks will no longer be required in hospitality and retail settings, or at events of any size.
  • Close contacts will no longer have to quarantine– provided they wear a face mask indoors and avoid sensitive settings. They will also need to undertake at least five rapid tests that produce a negative result over the seven days.
  • Individuals will be required to notify their workplace contacts, in addition to informing their social contacts. Workplaces won’t have to individually identify and notify each potentially exposed worker.
  • Events with more than 30,000 people will no longer require public health pre-approval.

Up to date COVIDSafe Plans are still required in all workplaces.
