COVIDSafe Business reopening plan

Published on 22 October 2020


The Victorian Government is working hard to ensure that every business that is open in Victoria knows that it must have a COVIDSafe Plan in place to help prevent future outbreaks of coronavirus.

As part of our plans to support industries to reopen safely, the Victorian Government has developed a COVIDSafe Plan template to reduce the risk of introduction and spread of coronavirus in the workplace. 

The new guidance, which includes Industry Restart Guidelines and Industry Restriction Levels, have been developed for some sectors, including local government services. These Industry Restart Guidelines will be valuable for many local businesses, including hospitalityhair and beauty businesses and community sport organisations

The attached fact sheets provide essential information on the six COVIDSafe principles, compliance and enforcement, and support for businesses, including fact sheets, social media assets and templates. Please share it with local businesses and your networks. 

In addition to this, businesses can also access a collection of signage, posters and questionnaires to assist in communicating key messages to workers and customers.
