Roadmap to Reopening
On Sunday 22 November 2020, the Victorian Government released its plans to ease restrictions as part of the final step to the 'Roadmap to Reopening'.
From 11:59pm 22 November 2020 a number of restrictions are easing. The changes to restrictions include:
- There are no restrictions on reasons to leave home. During the Last Step restrictions on gatherings remain in place.
- There will be a phased return to workplaces.
- Contact and non-contact sport and recreation can resume for all ages, with limits applying to numbers of people.
- Shops, recreational facilities, entertainment, hospitality and cultural venues will be open, although there are still restrictions. These include operating with a COVIDSafe Plan, density limits (the number of people allowed in a venue depends on its size so that people can keep at least 1.5 metres distance apart), record keeping and cleaning.
