Leading People During COVID-19

Updated 29 April 2022

Having reached 90% vaccination rate in Victoria on Friday 18 November, we have entered Phase D of the Roadmap. View Victoria’s Roadmap – Delivering the National Plan

As the surge in infections persists, we continue to receive queries on COVIDSafe requirements and vaccine mandates, including the booster vaccine.

On 14 January 2022, Volunteering Victoria prepared a media release calling on the government to urgently provide free rapid antigen tests (RATs) to every volunteer and organisation involved in the delivery of essential services.

We have collated the below resources to assist you with your operations. It should be noted that in most cases, the term ‘worker’ also includes volunteer – you can view some of the exemptions below.

While COVID-10 restrictions in Victoria continue to ease, vaccine mandates remain in place. These mandates apply to all workers, including volunteers. The specific requirements may vary depending on the sector. We encourage all volunteers to check the State Government Coronavirus website, Worker Vaccination Requirements for recent updates by sector.
