Changes underway to the Red Light setting

Published 23 Mar 2022

The Government this morning has announced changes to take place under the 'Red Light' level of the COVID-19 Protection Framework.
Rather than downgrade to the Orange level it is felt more appropriate to change the Red level restrictions under the circumstances.

They are scrapping the limit on outdoor gatherings from Friday 25th March and also number of people allowed to gather inside increases from 100 to 200.
Vaccine passes will no longer be required to be used from 11.59pm on April 4. The Government is also ending the controversial vaccine mandates in education, police or Defence Force workers and those workplaces using them from April 4.
