New COVID rules for places of worship from 26 March

Victoria will further relax its COVIDSafe settings following reduced exposure risk as Victoria continues to have low community transmission.

From 6pm on Friday 26 March 2021, places of worship must ensure that attendance records are maintained electronically through the Services Vic app or a government API-linked digital system. There will be a 28 day grace period for compliance.

If your worship services are conducted indoors, you will continue to be subject to a density quotient of 1 per 2sqm.

If your place of worship is ordinarily used as a wedding or funeral venue, there will no longer be maximum attendee caps indoors or outdoors. However, records must be maintained in the manner set out above.
