As we slide into Christmas after the most extraordinary and challenging year most of us have ever experienced, it’s a relief to see Australia’s hard work in managing Covid-19 is paying off with borders, retail and entertainment opening up and workplaces coming back to life. It means we can all look at 2021 with more optimism than we could have imagined. Even Victoria, who has done it toughest of all, is coming back to life with more restrictions lifting as announced over the weekend and we have a quick summary for you…
In Victoria, CovidSafe Summer refers to the application of Covid restrictions that are in place to keep us all safe and commenced at 11:59pm, 6 December 2020. Below we will also highlight a couple of changes that will come into place as of 11 January 2021.
The requirement to wear facemasks has been reduced significantly but the long and short of what you need to know is:
Keep up the messaging as to hand washing and staying home if unwell and make sure you have sanitiser on hand for employees and visitors. Ensure you are on top of record keeping (electronic in some) if your industry requires (e.g. retail, hospitality, etc) and if you are in anyway unsure about your COVIDSafe plan, make sure you contact the HR Staff n’ Stuff team as a matter of priority and we will help you get sorted.
