Roadmap to COVID Normal

The third step to a COVID Normal will come into place starting at 11:59 pm on 16 September 2020.

Every business across regional Victoria will be required to have a COVID-safe plan, and those plans will be enforced from 28 September. Regional Victoria has specific industry restriction levels.

In line with the lifting of restrictions, Premier Daniel Andrews announced the Victorian Government’s Outdoor Eating and Entertainment Package of $87.5 million. Council is waiving outdoor dining permit fees for the hospitality industry until 30 June 2021. This announcement will further support businesses, where appropriate, to offer immediate outdoor dining options to increase their serving capacity.
