Current restrictions in Victoria

The current lockdown in Victoria will be extended until 11:59pm Tuesday 27 July.

To understand how the current restrictions affect your workplace, see How we work: current restrictions page.

During COVIDSafe summer, eased restrictions are enabling Victorians to gather in larger numbers and attend organised events.

To support the safe return of public events of all sizes, we have created the Public Events Framework process to support event organisers in planning and delivering COVIDSafe events. 

What is a Tier 1 Event?

Tier 1 public events are with 7,500 or more attendees.

Tier 1 public events must have a COVIDSafe Event Plan approved by the Major Events Taskforce in order to proceed.
