We made it to the last step!

The State Government announced the further easing of restrictions in Victoria from 11.59pm on Sunday 22 November 2020.

In summary.  the key changes include:

  • The number of visitors to a home will increase from two to 15 per day. That can be split across different times.
  • Outdoor gatherings in a public place will increase to 50.
  • Weddings will increase to 150 people.
  • Funerals and religious ceremonies will increase to 150 people indoors.
  • Contact and non-contact sports can begin for adults as well as kids – 150 people indoors with a group size of up to 20 and 500 outdoors with groups of up to 50.
  • Masks will no longer be mandatory if outdoors and a safe distance can be kept, but Victorians will need to carry a mask at all times in case the situation changes. Masks still need to be worn when indoors and on public transport – and where distance cannot be kept.
  • Hospitality sector changes will also come into place. For smaller hospitality venues, the density limit will change to one person for every two square metres – up to 50 customers indoors. QR code record keeping will be mandatory.
  • For bigger hospitality venues, the density limit will stay the same, but the cap will increase to 150 indoors. Total venue capacity (indoor and outdoor) will also rise to 300.
  • Cinemas, galleries and museums will be able to host up to 150 people indoors.
  • Organisers will be able to apply to host a public event. Different requirements and rules will need to apply, depending on whether it’s a school fete or a major sporting match.
