Places of worship — such as a church, synagogue, temple or mosque — can operate at full capacity.

You should stay 1.5 metres from people you don’t live with, where possible. Practise good hygiene.

There are no capacity limits to weddings or funerals.

If your wedding or other event is being held at a venue — such as a hotel or function centre — that already has approval to hold events, it’s unlikely you’ll need a COVID Event Plan. Check with the venue operator or relevant Local Government Authority (LGA).

  • Events with 2,500 patrons or less must complete a COVID Event Checklist
  • Events with more than 2,500 patrons must complete a COVID Event Plan

To learn more, go to and search for ‘COVID Event Guidelines’.
