Updated 7 January 2022

From 11.59pm Thursday 6 January, anyone who tests positive on a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) is considered to have COVID-19.

You will be subject to the same requirements as those who test positive from a PCR test. You must isolate immediately for seven days and notify your close contacts.

It is also mandatory to report the result of a positive RAT to the Department of Health. You can do this via the online form or by calling the Coronavirus Hotline on 1800 675 398.

Rapid Antigen tests are available free of charge from the Melbourne Showgrounds testing site. They will also be available at all Victorian testing sites and other select locations once supply increases. More information can be found on the Coronavirus website.

The Victorian Government has released new directions for identifying contacts of confirmed COVID-19 cases. These include:

Face masks are mandatory in all indoor settings except the home. This applies to people aged eight years and above, unless a medical exemption applies.

Remember to check-in everywhere you visit using the Service Victoria App, no matter how long you spend at that location.

And for when you come and visit us…

Council has followed the State Government COVID-19 directives throughout the pandemic and will do so as it relates to vaccination mandates. Presently there are a number of Council services and facilities where Government directives mandate COVID-19 vaccination and the checking of this status. Where this is the case Council will be implementing this directive. 

For facilities and services where vaccination status is not mandated Council requests that unvaccinated individuals do not attend Council facilities and services. We ask that individuals contact Council and we will endeavour to assist you to access the service you need in another way. Our Customer Service team can also assist you to access your COVID-19 vaccination certificate to evidence your vaccination status.

Keep updated with the latest information on Council services.
