COVIDSafe Summer

On Sunday 6 December 2020, the Victorian Government released its plans for a 'COVIDSafe Summer'.

From 11:59pm on Sunday 6 December 2020 a number of restrictions are easing. The changes to restrictions include: 

  • Victorians can host up to 30 people (15 people as of 31 December 2020) in their home per day. Outdoor gatherings in public places can increase to 100.
  • Everyone should carry a mask at all times, and they are mandatory on public transport, in rideshare vehicles and taxis, and in retail settings including indoor shopping centres, supermarkets, department stores and indoor markets.
  • The cap for funerals and weddings will be removed, subject to a new density limit of 1 person per 2sq metres. Where the ceremony is held in your own home, the limit of 30 people applies.
  • The same new density limits will apply for community facilities, including libraries, RSLs, and community halls.
  • In gyms, the density limit will move to 1 per 4sq metres – with exercise classes limited to 50 indoors and 100 outdoors.
  • There can be up to 50 people on a dancefloor, with a density of 1 person per 4sq metres.

For Permitted Workers:

  • If your employees are unwell, they must stay home.
  • Ensure employees with symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) get tested and stay at home until they receive the results (https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/where-get-tested-covid-19 )
  • Plan contingencies for a potential increase of staff absences because people are self-isolating, self-quarantining or staying home because they are unwell to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
  • Develop an infection control policy and plan for what to do if staff arrive unwell at work (e.g. identify an isolation room or separate area).
  • Display coronavirus (COVID-19) education materials, these can be downloaded and printed from the Resources section on this page.
  • Minimise staff movements between areas and cross-over between shifts.
  • Provide adequate facilities or products (such as hand sanitiser, where available) to allow employees and others who enter the workplace to maintain good hygiene practices.
  • Provide appropriate personal protective equipment, including information or training on why the equipment is necessary and how to safely use it. 
  • Consult with Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs), employees and contractors about the actions you are taking to control risks associated with coronavirus (COVID-19).
  • Socialising among workers has been responsible for some transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19). This includes carpooling, huddling together at meal breaks or smoking in groups without physical distancing, and sharing items such as cigarette lighters and cutlery.
  • Workers should physical distance by keeping 1.5 metres apart from their work colleagues at all times and avoid sharing items such as phones, desks, offices, or other work tools and equipment.
