The new framework has a number of requirements at each setting to keep our communities safe. This includes things that will be familiar from the alert level system, such as wearing face coverings in some places and scanning in wherever we go.
However, across all settings of the new framework, vaccine passes are now a key part of our plan. They’ll ensure our communities, workplaces and events are safe, adding an extra layer of protection for people who can't be vaccinated, like young children.
No matter what setting your region is at, people using a My Vaccine Pass will be able to visit cafes, restaurants and bars, attend events and gatherings like weddings and funerals, visit close contact businesses like hairdressers, and go to the gym.
Businesses, events and organisations that don’t use My Vaccine Pass will have to follow tighter restrictions – and some won’t be able to open or go ahead at the Orange and Red settings. This will keep people safe and shield our health system.
