The Victorian Government has lifted most restrictions on events and gatherings of people due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Public events are no longer required to adhere to the Victorian Governments Public Events Framework which has been removed.

As of 22 April 2022, it is required that event organisers have a COVID-Safe Events Plan. This gives confidence to your guests and patrons that all appropriate measures have been taken

Event organisers are encouraged to first consult the coronavirus website for more information on what defines a public event. The site also outlays the requirements for these events to be considered COVIDSafe.

If you require support in classifying your event or in the development of a COVIDSafe Plan, please contact our events officer via email.
