Phase C & D Roadmap information

The Victorian Government has outlined further details for the 80 per cent and 90 per cent double dose targets on the Roadmap. Below is an update from Creative Victoria for our sector.
Ausdance VIC are advocating for

  • Clear vaccination guidelines for Children aged 11 upon their 12th birthday in Phase D;
  • Clear information about the participation of unvaccinated teens and adults in dance in Phase C & D;
  • Clear guidelines for events with significant numbers of children in Phase D;
  • Detailed Restricted Activity Directions to be released before restrictions change.

We anticipate detailed information about the 80% double dose restrictions will be released on Friday.

We do not have any further information at this time.

Update from Creative Victoria

 Key dates set out in the updated Roadmap are:

  • Friday 29 October: Victoria to reach its 80 per cent double dose vaccination milestone
    (Phase C).
  • Wednesday 24 November: Victoria is predicted to reach its 90 per cent double dose milestone (Phase D)

Victoria’s Chief Health Officer has determined that at 6:00pm on Friday 29 October:

  • Regional Victoria and metropolitan Melbourne will unite and share the same restrictions, enabling people, including Dance Teachers, to travel between Melbourne and regional Victoria again.
  • Masks will remain mandatory indoors, the exemption to remove a mask when engaged in strenuous activity still remains but are no longer required outdoors.
  • Most indoor settings, including Dance Studios and Community Facilities will open with no capacity limits subject to a DQ4 (one person per four square metres) limit, if all staff and patrons are fully vaccinated. Children under 16 are counted as fully vaccinated in this phase.
  • Entertainment venues will reopen. For indoor seated venues, including theatres, there will be a 75 per cent capacity limit or DQ4 up to 1000 people.
  • Check-in marshals are required to monitor QR code check in and “Green Tick” vaccination for 16+.

When Victoria hits the 90 per cent double dose vaccination target for Victorians 12 years and over – predicted to be Wednesday 24 November:

  • Capacity limits or density quotients will be removed for all settings, with vaccination requirements.
  • Masks will only be mandatory indoors in some high-risk settings such as hospitals, aged care, public transport and justice and correctional facilities.
  • There will be no restrictions for indoor and outdoor events provided they follow COVIDSafe rules, including vaccination requirements.
  • Events with significant numbers of children may not be able to operate at full capacity while vaccines remain unavailable for children.
