Business events to resume in Victoria as restrictions ease

Find out the latest capacity limits for events across the state.

From 11.59pm 27 July, Victorians will be able to leave their homes for any reason, as the state eases its lockdown restrictions.

As part of the rolling back, the Authorised Worker List will no longer apply, allowing businesses and venues to reopen with density limits of 1 person per 4 square metres.

The Victorian Government advises ‘if you can work from home, you should work from home’ , however office workers will be able to return up to 25 per cent or up to 10 people, whichever is greater.

Public gatherings will be allowed with up to 10 people, however masks will continue to be mandatory in all indoor and outdoor settings, except in private homes.

Business events can go ahead

According to the latest table of restrictions, indoor fixed-seated function venues can open up to a maximum of 100 people per space, while outdoor fixed-seated function venues can open up to a maximum of 300 people per outdoor space.

The density quotient of 1 person per 4 square metres applies in non-seated areas of the venue and COVID check-in marshals must be on site to ensure attendees check-in.

Meanwhile, indoor non-seated function venues can have up to 100 people per space and outdoor non-seated function venues can have up to 300 people per space, both adhering to 1 person per 4 square metres.

Also as part of the new rules, restaurants and cafes can also reopen for seated service, as can entertainment venues and community facilities.

A maximum of 50 people will be permitted at weddings and funerals.

Live music venues can also reopen with density requirements of 1 person per 4 square metres.
