Public attendance at race meetings

Following further consultation with the Office of Racing and the Chief Health Officer, GRV can advise that members of the public can attend race meetings effective immediately, dependent on density requirements.

This paves the way for the public to join registered GRV participants at the track for the Australian Cup heats meeting on Saturday 20 February at The Meadows.

Each event is ticketed and seated only, therefore numbers are limited and based on the individual clubs’ COVIDSafe plan according to the Public Events Framework (pre-approved by DJPR).

No walk ups will be accepted.

Contact your local club re: attendance.

Masks are compulsory in all indoor settings and outside if you can’t physically distance from others.

Health protocols, including temperature checks, will be required and it is mandatory that all attending sign in using the QR Code.

We thank everyone for their patience as we work through the complex details about getting everyone back on track.

We are almost there.


Stay safe, Stay aware, Stay racing.

Getting back to a COVIDSafe Summer – key changes to restrictions

There are no restrictions on reasons to leave home but stay safe.

  • Face masks must be carried at all times. Face masks continue to be mandatory indoors (except in a residential home). This includes workplaces.
  • Face masks are mandatory outdoors when you cannot maintain a physical distance of 1.5 metres from others who you don’t live with (unless an exemption applies).
  • Hospitality and retail can reopen with density quotients in place. These are outlined in the COVIDSafe Summer table of restrictions. This includes personal services like beauty and hairdressing.
  • Public and private office workers can return with up to 50 per cent of a workforce on-site.
  • Large indoor venues, such as the NGV and Princess Theatre, can open for up to 50 per cent capacity of the total venue with a maximum of 300 patrons in each space.
  • Indoor seated entertainment venues have limits of 50 per cent of seating capacity up to 300 patrons per space. Outdoor seated entertainment venues have limits of 75 per cent capacity up to 1000 patrons.
  • Accommodation providers can also re-open, in line with private gathering requirements. That means a booking can be made by a household with up to five visitors.
  • Weddings, funerals and religious gatherings can occur with no limits on guests or attendees. To ensure people can keep 1.5 metres distance, the venue must apply the two square metre rule or the four square metre rule. If conducted in a private home, the private gathering limit applies (5 visitors).
  • Community facilities, entertainment venues and all other public places can reopen – with additional limits on crowd sizes in place. These are outlined in the COVIDSafe Summer table of restrictions.
  • No more than five visitors are allowed to your home per day, and outdoor public gatherings with friends and family are limited to 20 people.
  • Visits to hospitals and residential aged care facilities are limited to one household per day, with some exceptions.
  • Schools and education providers will open and students will return to school.
  • For more detail, see the Premier’s statement and the COVIDSafe Summer table of restrictions.
