Restrictions & Guidelines

From 11:59pm, Thursday 18 November 2021:

  • The vaccinated economy will remain, as will face masks in some settings.
  • There will be no caps or density limits for cafés and restaurants.
  • Indoor dance floors will reopen.
  • Non-essential retail settings across Victoria will join the vaccinated economy. It will only be open to people who are fully vaccinated or have a valid medical exemption, and children aged under 12 years and two months.
  • Vaccine requirements for general retail apply from 11:59pm 18 November 2021 as Victoria has reached 90 per cent double dose.
  • All indoor and outdoor events with less than 30,000 fully vaccinated attendees will be able to proceed with no special approval. A COVIDSafe Plan is required.
  • Major events like the Boxing Day Test and the Australian Open will be able to proceed at full capacity, subject to the approval of the MCG and Melbourne Park’s COVIDSafe Plan.
