Who needs to create a COVID-Safe Plan
The Public Activities COVID-19 Direction places conditions on businesses that conduct a number of Defined public activities.
Businesses involved in a Defined public activity must complete a COVID-Safe Plan.
See Activities and gatherings for:
- definitions of Defined public activities
- businesses and activities that are still restricted
- businesses and activities that are excluded from the Direction.
If you have not completed a COVID-Safe Plan, do not have this available at your premises, or do not comply with current Directions, you can be fined up to $5,000.

The COVIDSafe app is part of the government's work to slow the spread of COVID19. Having confidence we can find and contain outbreaks quickly will mean governments can ease restrictions while still keeping Australians safe.
