The Victorian Government has announced further details for the reopening of Victoria’s vaccinated economy.
Subject to consideration by the Chief Health Officer and a COVIDSafe Plan, several thousand people will be able to watch Victorian artists celebrate the return of live music at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl on Saturday, 30 October.
Days later, up to 10,000 racing fans will be at Flemington for the Melbourne Cup on the first Tuesday in November.
The final two days of the Melbourne Cup Carnival – Oaks Day and Stakes Day – will also welcome up to 10,000 patrons if the 80 per cent double-vaccination threshold has been passed.
Attendees will be spread across several zones at Flemington in allocated seats, will be required to wear masks and must be fully vaccinated or holding a valid exemption.
The Vaccinated Economy Trials will allow more people to safely attend venues and events when all patrons are fully vaccinated.
Vaccinated Economy Trials to begin in regional Victoria
The first stage of the Vaccinated Economy Trials will begin from, Monday 11 October, at regional venues across Victoria.
Fourteen venues and events in six local government areas will operate with higher capacity and density limits under the 70 per cent double dose settings.
From tomorrow, Victorians can add their COVID-19 digital certificate to the Service Victoria app through MyGov or the Express Medicare Plus App.
