Premier's update on restrictions

2 January 2021

Read the latest update on COVID-19 restrictions.

COVID-19 Safety Plans are mandatory

Under Public Health Orders occupiers of wharves (operators) and vessels must have a COVID-19 Safety Plan.

Complete the plan in consultation with staff, then share it with them.

There is a separate COVID-19 Safety Plan for commercial vessels (including tours, functions, parties or similar recreational activities).

Businesses should also consider the benefits of registering as COVID Safe.

Keep your plan up to date

You may need to update the plan in the future, as restrictions and advice changes.

You will need to have an up to date plan at your premises at all times and be able to show it to an authorised officer if requested.

Your COVID-19 Safety Plan

You can either:

  • use the provided COVID-19 Safety Plan to address the checklist of matters for maritime operations
  • keep using your existing plan, if you have one, after making sure it includes all the items in the provided COVID-19 Safety Plan.
