Thursday 18 November 2021
The VIC Government have announced that nearly all remaining restrictions will be lifted statewide for fully vaccinated people from 11:59pm tonight, Thursday 18 November.
With Victoria set to hit the 90 percent double dose milestone for eligible people in the coming days, the Acting Chief Health Officer has determined that almost all remaining restrictions in Victoria will ease from tonight – reaching Phase D of the National Plan.
Masks will still be required for workers serving the public at hospitality venues, for workers and customers at indoor retail, for visitors and select workers in hospitals or care facilities, and for people using public transport, taxi/rideshare and planes.
Customers for retail will no longer need to wear masks after 15 December – in line with NSW settings.
High-risk work settings such as meat, poultry and seafood processing will continue to require masks.
From 11:59pm tonight, the majority of people who come into contact with a confirmed positive case outside their home won’t have to self-quarantine. These contacts will be required to get a standard (PCR) test and isolate until they get a negative result.
