1. Practise physical distancing
- Where possible within the workplace, aim for workers and visitors to maintain physical distancing of 1.5 metres
2. Practise good hygiene
- Make soap and hand sanitiser available for all workers and customers throughout the worksite and encourage regular handwashing.
3. Positive cases must still isolate for seven days from the day they took their test
- You may now leave home to drive a household member directly to or from education or work without leaving their vehicle.
- You can also leave home to get medical care, a COVID-19 test, or in an emergency, including the risk of harm.
4. Visitor caps are removed
- Residents of residential aged care and disability can see any number of people, provided they test negative on a rapid antigen test that day. If a test is unavailable, a person can only be present for limited reasons such as end-of-life visits.
- Centres may introduce their own visitor rules to respond to local risk.
- Employers can consider setting COVID-19 vaccination policies as part of their own workplace conditions.
5. Masks must still be worn
- On public transport, taxis, ride shares, and planes, but will no longer be required at airports.
- Masks are also still required in sensitive settings such as hospitals and care facilities.
6. Avoid interactions in enclosed spaces
- Move activity outside where practicable, including meetings, tearooms, lunch breaks and serving customers.
- Enhance airflow by opening windows and doors.
7. Protect the most vulnerable during winter
- Three COVID-19 vaccine doses are still required for workers in residential aged care and disability care, healthcare, and custodial and emergency services, including police.
