From 11.59pm Friday, March 25:

  • Outdoor gathering limits will be removed.
  • Indoor gathering limits will be increased to 200.
  • QR code scanning will be scrapped.
  • Outdoor face mask requirements removed.

From 11.59pm on Monday, April 4:

  • Vaccine passes will no longer be required – but businesses can keep using them if they wish.
  • Vaccine mandates will be dropped for education, police and defence force workers – and for workers at businesses that have been mandated to use vaccine passes, such as hospitality.

What does this mean for bowling clubs?

  • Clubs will be able to welcome all members (including unvaccinated) from April 4th.
  • Clubrooms are restricted to a 200 limit under the current Red setting
  • No QR scanning required

 At all levels, the testing and isolation requirements remain as they are now. If you have symptoms or someone in your household tests positive, isolate and get tested.
