COVID-19 Centre Update

Changes to The Village Bacchus Marsh in accordance with Victorian Government mandates – 17 February 2021

Stage 4 restrictions in accordance with the Victorian Government mandated lock down will end at 11:59pm on 17 February.

This means you’ll see The Village Bacchus Marsh return to its normal COVIDSafe practices.

Some government mandated restrictions will continue to apply, including face masks, which continue to be required to be worn inside at all times and outdoors when one cannot maintain social distancing (unless one of the usual lawful exemptions applies).

We have implemented a number of measures that assist us and our community in adhering to this directive including:

  • All centre staff and contractors will be required to wear masks while at work unless they have a valid reason not to.
  • Signage that clearly reminds our community to wear a face mask while visiting the Centre.
  • Close work with local Police in monitoring our community’s adherence to COVID-19 related restrictions.
