Changes to the COVID-19 Protection Framework (CPF)

A new and highly simplified traffic light setting is now in effect.

The key changes are as follows:
Red
🔴Indoor capacity limits for gatherings and events with My Vaccine Pass will increase to 200 – this includes gyms, food and drink businesses and other indoor settings where sport and recreation takes place.
🔴There will be no limits for outdoor activities with My Vaccine Pass – such as gatherings, events, and food/drink retailers.
🔴Face masks are no longer required at outdoor settings.
🔴There is no requirement to scan in or for a business to display a QR code poster or have mandatory record keeping.

Orange
🟠There will be no capacity limits for indoor and outdoor gatherings and events, but face masks are still required in many indoor settings.
🟠There is no requirement to scan in or for a business to display a QR code poster or have mandatory record keeping.

Green
🟢There are no requirements, but good health habits should still be maintained to help look after those who are more vulnerable to COVID-19.

From 11.59pm Monday 4 April, My Vaccine Passes will no longer be required. This is due to the high vaccination rate and levels of acquired immunity.
⚫️Until 4 April, where My Vaccine Passes are not used, the current restrictions remain — but after this time, the new capacity limits will apply to everyone.
⚫️After 4 April, businesses will still be able to use the system if they would like to.
