Victoria’s COVIDSafe settings

There are no limits to the number of people you can gather with in your home or in public places — for example, a park or a beach.

Workplaces are open, but you must have had at least 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine if you’re a worker or volunteer who is required to be vaccinated if working outside home.
