Victorian businesses now require COVID Safe Plan


The Victorian Government’s ‘Roadmap to Reopening’ was released on Sunday, with a COVIDSafe Plan required by all a key aspect for apple and pear growers in the state.

Under the roadmap, from 11:59pm on Sunday 13 September it will be mandatory for all Victorian businesses state-wide operating onsite to have a COVIDSafe Plan. This is a change from the current requirements for many businesses in regional Victoria, who are currently advised, but not required to have a COVIDSafe Plan. Businesses with fewer than five employees are exempt from this requirement.

See below a template and guidance material for the COVIDSafe Plan, which has been provided by Agriculture Victoria.
