VICTORIA

In keeping with Victoria’s current Public Health Directions, on and from 11.59pm 21 October 2021, Victorians will be able to have up to 10 people per day to visit homes and community centres will reopen. This means that in-person tutoring can resume.

To ensure that our community remains safe during this time, we strongly recommend, in line with Victoria’s Public Health Directions, that:

  • unless clear enunciation or visibility of the mouth is essential, masks should be worn during in-person tutoring;
  • both tutor and student (if of an eligible age to be vaccinated) are both fully vaccinated before commencing or returning to in-person tutoring; and
  • personal hygiene is properly practised before, during and after in-person lessons take place, including washing of hands, use of sanitiser and a distance of 1.5m is adhered to where possible.

NEW SOUTH WALES
+

On and from 11 October 2021, there are new rules in place for fully vaccinated people in NSW (this means people who have had 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccination or are medically exempt).

Rules vary based on various factors (including whether you are fully vaccinated, whether everyone over the age of 16 in a household is fully vaccinated, where you plan to attend a lesson, participant limits etc.). We recommend you refer to the COVID-19 restrictions here to determine what rules apply to you and your tutor/student.

A mask should be worn during lessons unless communication with someone who is deaf or hard of hearing is necessary or where seeing the mouth is essential. You should always try to maintain a distance of 1.5m apart, where practicable.
