Coronavirus

Casey is following the Victorian Government’s advice on managing and responding to coronavirus (COVID-19).

Current restrictions and requirements

The Victorian Premier's latest announcement specified the further easing of current restrictions and requirements from 11.59 pm on Friday 22 April.

The key changes in this announcement are:

  • Removal of the double vaccine requirement. Victorians won't be required to have two vaccine doses or show their vaccination status before entering venues.
  • Masks will no longer be required in primary schools, in early childhood settings, or retail settings or events.
  • Close contacts will no longer have to quarantine, provided they wear a mask and avoid sensitive settings. They must also conduct five rapid antigen tests (RATs) over the course of seven days.
  • International travellers who are symptom-free will be recommended, but not required, to undertake PCR or rapid tests on arrival and unvaccinated travellers will no longer need to complete seven days' quarantine

Please view the Victorian Government website for the full list of current restrictions and requirements.

Future restriction changes

Restrictions may continue to change dependent on hospitalisation rates and the spread of new variants. Updates will be published on the State Government website.

COVID tests

The Victorian Premier announced changes to testing and isolation requirements from 1 January 2022 to focus on those at the highest-risk.

Rapid antigen tests can be used to display a result within 15 minutes. 

Standard PCR tests also continue to be available. Find out where to get tested in Casey.

Read in-depth information about the testing process on the State Government website.

COVID vaccinations

Local Government vaccination services are not currently involved in providing COVID vaccinations.

Please refer to the State Government website for information on COVID-19 vaccine eligibility and how to book a vaccine appointment.

We will also be listing the details of additional pop-up vaccination clinics in the Casey area on our community resources page.

If you don’t have internet access or just prefer to speak to a person, then please call the National Coronavirus and COVID-19 vaccine helpline on 1800 020 080.

Exposure sites in Casey 

The Victorian Premier announced on 18 November 2021 that exposures sites will no longer be published.

Instead, the Department of Health will use the new alert function in the Service Victoria app or direct SMS message to notify patrons of higher-risk venues where positive cases have been present - such as restaurants, gyms and nightclubs - and advise them to get tested.
