Information last updated: 23 December 2021

The full list and details of COVID-19 restrictions

The most up-to-date and and complete list of COVID-19 restrictions in place for Moreland is on the Victorian Government Coronavirus website. This website will provide all the details for the restrictions and how to follow them.

Summary of current COVID-19 restrictions

Almost all restrictions have eased for fully vaccinated Victorians, but some COVID-19 risks still remain.

There are things we can all do to make ourselves and others safer. As you live and work, remember these COVIDSafe principles:

  • You can leave home for any reason and travel anywhere in Victoria. 
  • You can travel interstate subject to the entry requirements of the state you are travelling to, which are available using the COVID-19 restriction checker tool on the Health Direct website.
  • Masks will be mandatory in all indoor venues outside the home, for Victorians eight years and over, from 11:59pm on 23 December. More information about where masks are required is on the Victorian Government's Coronavirus website.
  • You can reduce risks by maintaining 1.5m distance from others where possible, using hand sanitisers and practising good hygiene. Consider opening windows to let the fresh air blow through or catching up with friends outside, as ventilation and air filtration can help to reduce risks.
  • You need to get a COVID-19 test and isolate until you get a negative result if you have COVID-19 symptoms or if you have been advised to get tested by a contact, workplace, or school.
  • You need to quarantine if you have COVID-19, or you are a household contact. If your symptoms get rapidly worse, please seek help and visit the hospital if it’s an emergency. More information about what to do if you test positive for COVID-19 is available on the Victorian Government's Coronavirus website.
  • You must check-in everywhere you visit using the Service Victoria App, no matter how long you spend at that location.
  • You will need to show evidence of being fully vaccinated to enter many venues. You can find out more about showing this evidence on the Victorian Government's Coronavirus website. People with valid medical exceptions issued by an authorised medical practitioner and people aged under 18 are excepted.
  • Get vaccinated to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community. If you aren’t fully vaccinated, you’re at a much higher risk of needing to go to the hospital. You can book a vaccination appointment on the Victorian Government's Vaccine booking website.

For social gatherings the following restrictions apply:

  • There are no limits to the number of people you can gather with in your home or in public places (e.g. a park or a beach).

  • The Victorian Government strongly recommends that everyone who you are gathering at your home or in a public place is fully vaccinated. Information about what qualifies as being fully vaccinated is on the Victorian Government's Coronavirus website.
