18.11.2021COVID Corner: Workplace vaccination deadlines

Our members are reporting that our road to recovery is looking more optimistic as restrictions are being lifted in response to progressive vaccination rates.

As of Saturday, 13 November, all employees and contractors working on Victorian construction sites must be fully vaccinated with two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine to be eligible to continue working on site. The requirement for all workers in Victoria’s residential aged-care facilities to be fully vaccinated is also now mandatory. Exceptions apply to workers with a medical exemption.
