From Friday 14 October 2022, it is no longer mandatory to isolate if you test positive to COVID-19.
The removal of mandatory isolation does not impact on the duties of an employer to do all that is reasonably practicable to minimise the risks of COVID-19 at the workplace, including asking workers to stay at home when unwell.
Information on these pages is currently being reviewed and will be updated shortly.
The Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) has issued a statement on very high-risk environments, including nightclubs, dance venues and large unstructured outdoor events. For more information please refer to the AHPPC website.
This page includes resources for workplaces in the live entertainment industry on work health and safety, workers’ compensation and COVID-19.

- amphitheatres and outdoor venues
- pubs, taverns and bars
- concert halls and dedicated music venues
- events, including weddings.
