As of 11:59pm Sunday Sept 19, The City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast Shire and Mitchell Shire were placed into lockdown for seven days. The restrictions in place in these LGAs are the same as Metropolitan Melbourne, with the exception of nightly curfews.
Ballarat remains in lockdown until 11:59pm Wednesday Sept 22 under the same restrictions.Anyone who lives and/or works in Ballarat, Geelong, Surf Coast or Mitchell shires should refer to the Melbourne Metro FAQs for current guidance, including the need for Permitted Worker Permits.
There is a full list of current restrictions below in the Melb Metro and Vic Regional FAQs. You will also find a Permitted Worker Permit application (word.doc) below.
The FAQs are intended as a guide to how the current COVID restrictions impact church life including what all congregations and faith communities must do to remain COVID-compliant.
Before opening your doors to worship services and other activities, it is vital to consider not only all of the necessary physical requirements but, more importantly, the ministry and mission implications. There are a number of additional factors which every church council should also consider.
We have designed a Recovery Action Plan checklist to assist you in deciding if you are able to be COVID-19 compliant. This is your Covid-safe plan and must be completed by the church council before making any plans to reopen your doors.
The FAQ documents for each state are updated as required to reflect major COVID restriction changes as they are announced.
