VIC COVID-19 Update

Posted on 18 November 2021

The Victorian Government has announced further easing of COVID-19 restrictions across Victoria.

From 11:59 pm Thursday 18 November, there will no longer be density limits at hospitality venue or in homes and masks will no longer be required in many settings. 

Masks will still be required in health care, aged care, justice facilities, public transport, retail settings, and in primary schools. We believe face masks will still be required in private practice psychology for the time being. We will let you know if this advice changes.

Major changes to quarantine obligations were also announced. From 11:59 pm Thursday 18 November, self-quarantine requirements for COVID-19 cases and close contacts will be significantly eased.

Under the new settings:

  • Positive cases will only have to isolate for 10 days instead of 14
  • Household close contacts will have to isolate for seven days if fully vaccinated and 14 days if not vaccinated
  • Non-household close contacts will only have to isolate until they receive a negative test result
  • Positive cases will have to notify their workplace, school or childcare about a positive result and workplaces will need to identify and notify their employees or subcontractors. 

Please visit the Victorian Government website for further information.

We will continue to keep you updated with further announcements or changes.
