Summary of COVIDSafe Settings in Victoria (Current as of 18 November 2021)
Almost all restrictions have eased for fully vaccinated Victorians, but some COVID-19 risks still remain. There are things we can all do to make ourselves and others safer. As you live and work, remember these COVIDSafe principles:
- We recommend wearing a mask if you can’t physically distance, have any symptoms, or if you are with people who may be vulnerable to COVID-19.
- Masks are required indoors at retail, health, care and justice facilities, at primary schools, and on public transport/taxis/rideshare. See the Face masks page for information about where masks are required.
- You can reduce risks by maintaining 1.5 metre distance from others where possible, using hand sanitiser and practising good hygiene.
- Ventilation and air filtration helps. Consider opening windows to let the fresh air blow through or catching up with friends outside.
- If you have COVID-19 symptoms or if you have been advised to get tested by a contact, workplace or school, get a COVID-19 test and isolate until you get a negative result.
- If you have COVID-19, or you are a household contact, you need to quarantine. If your symptoms get rapidly worse, please seek help. Visit the hospital if it’s an emergency.
- Remember to check in everywhere every time using the Service Victoria App.
- Get vaccinated to protect yourself, your loved ones and your community. If you aren’t fully vaccinated, you’re at a much higher risk of going to hospital. Book an appointment today.
In line with the State Government’s Victoria Roadmap, proof of vaccination is now required at certain Council services and facilities.
Some Council services have changed based on State Government vaccination mandates, however, safe alternatives are in place, where possible, for unvaccinated individuals to help us meet the needs of all Yarriambiack Shire residents. We ask that you be respectful towards our staff during this phase.
