From 11:59pm Wednesday 5th August 2020, further restrictions came into effect in Victoria.

It is mandatory to wear face coverings throughout Victoria. Services and industries that remain operational are required to implement their COVID Safe Plan by 11:59pm Friday 7th August 2020. Employers that require their staff to attend a worksite must issue a Permitted Worker Permit to their employees. This is the responsibility of the employer.
