From 11:59m on Thursday 18th November, there will be some further easing of restrictions.


As regards coaching:

Indoor physical recreation: Fully vaccinated*: no caps (EXCEPT Indoor venues, including stadiums that have a capacity of 30,000 or more. These will need to get a one-off approval of their COVIDSafe Plan from the Victorian Government.)

Outdoor physical recreation: Fully vaccinated*: NO public gathering limits.

Outdoor skateparks and gym equipment OPEN.

Community sport: permitted indoors and outdoors, regardless of vaccination status. Minimum number required for the sport, spectators: NO public gathering limits.

Public gatherings: NO public gathering limits.

Swimming pools: Fully vaccinated*: NO public gathering limits.

Travel limit: intrastate travel allowed. There are no limits on leaving Victoria, but travel may be impacted by rules at your destination – check before you book. When you return, you must obtain a permit from Service Victoria and follow your permit conditions and requirements.

Community premises (e.g. recreation facility): only open to the fully vaccinated

Masks are required indoors only in limited settings (including retail, health care, aged care and justice facilities, at primary schools and on public transport/taxis/rideshare. We recommend wearing a mask if you can’t physically distance, if you have any symptoms, or if you are with people who may be vulnerable to COVID-19.) Not required outdoors.


*If you are fully vaccinated, you can attend sporting and recreation facilities (e.g. sports grounds, gyms and swimming pools) and sporting events. If you don’t meet the vaccination requirements, you can’t enter. Vaccination requirements don’t apply to people involved in community sport (e.g. a local footy match) or people using swimming pools for essential medical care. (People under 12y.o. or who hold a VALID EXEMPTION are counted as “vaccinated”).


This is the final step in the National Plan. There may be some easing around mask wearing in retail premises around 15 December.
