Covid Safe Events


Public events in Victoria can take place under COVIDSafe settings. When organising or attending gatherings, consider ways to reduce the risk of getting and spreading COVID-19.

Event Requirements

  • The Public Events Framework has been superseded by changes to the COVIDSafe Settings. The settings of the Public Events Framework are no longer relevant or applicable. All events operate under the COVIDSafe Settings, except those classified as State Significant Venues.
  • Events that are operating under the COVIDSafe Settings no longer need to be registered or approved under the Public Events Framework.
  • It is mandatory for every Victorian business with on-site operations to have a COVIDSafe Plan. Download a COVIDSafe Plan template. To ensure compliance, random spot checks are occurring throughout Victoria. Your COVIDSafe plan should be reviewed and updated regularly.
  • Venues and public events operating under the COVIDSafe Settings are no longer required to have a COVIDSafe Event Plan or COVIDSafe Event Checklist.
  • Event organisers or venue managers do not need to update the Victorian Government of any event or venue changes, including new event dates or increases to number of attendees as long as they operate under the COVIDSafe Settings.
