Coronavirus Construction News Update – Elite Building Services – 15 December 2021
An exciting update for consumers as the government announces that as of Thursday, 16 December, the following changes that impact the building & construction industry will come into effect:
• Worksites exposed to a positive Covid case will no longer need to be deep cleaned;
• People under the age of 18 will no longer be required to show proof of their vaccination status;
• Operators of display homes and colour & material selection centres will no longer be required to check the vaccination status of their customers, making it possible for everyone to return to attending display homes and colour & material selection centres! Please note however, that all workers are still required to be fully vaccinated.
• All customers and staff in display homes and colour & selection centres are still required to wear masks (unless an exemption applies).
•The Service Victoria QR code system is also still required to be available and utilized in all settings relating to building & construction.
We know that this is only a small change to our industry but it is certainly a welcome change and we hope that there will be a further easing of restrictions to come on 12 January or earlier and will continue to keep you updated.
Please take care and stay safe in these more relaxed settings.
