Premier Daniel Andrews announced some key measures on the advice of the state’s public health team that all workers, in Melbourne and regional Victoria, on the Authorised Worker list will require their first COVID-19 vaccine dose by Friday, October 15.

“They will need one dose if they want to continue working and must be fully vaccinated by November 26,” Mr Andrews said.

Restrictions on the state’s construction industry are also set to ease from 11.59pm on Monday, October 4.

In order to work onsite, all workers will need to carry an Authorised Worker Permit and have had at least one vaccine dose.

Every construction site in Victoria must also have a designated fully-trained COVID Marshal to ensure compliance with the chief health officer’s directions.

Fully vaccinated workers can travel between metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria in order to work onsite.

Workers on state critical projects or large scale construction can also travel between metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria if they have had a single dose, take an initial test before their first travel, then test twice per week until fully vaccinated.
