Note: From 11.59pm, Thursday 27 May 2021, circuit breaker restrictions are in place across Victoria. Under these settings, all cultural and entertainment venues must remain closed.

Industry Restart Guidelines are being reviewed and will be reposted as soon as possible.

As Victoria’s creative organisations, businesses and venues reopen and return to work, it is important for businesses and employers to understand their obligations and how to keep their workers, artists, audiences, patrons and the wider community safe.

The Victorian Government has developed guidelines to assist Indoor Entertainment Venues (including cinemas, performing arts and music venues), Museums and Galleries and Outdoor Entertainment Attractions and Experiences operate in a COVIDSafe way, in line with the latest public health advice and measures.

The guidelines will be available to download from the Arts and entertainment services page on the Victorian Government’s coronavirus website.

Creative venues, museums and galleries with a retail or hospitality space should consult the relevant industry guidelines. Set building for theatre, film and television must adhere to construction sector guidelines.
