Construction Workforce Restrictions Ended

As of 11.59, 21 October workforce restrictions on all construction sites have been removed.  This means:

  • All construction projects (large scale, small scale construction and early stage land development projects) can return to 100 percent of their workforce; and

  • Workers at all construction sites will need to adhere to the schedule in the COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccination (Specified Facilities) Directions, requiring them to have had their first vaccination dose by 2 October 2021, and a second vaccination dose by 13 November 2021.

Other COVIDSafe measures such as COVIDSafe Plans and COVIDSafe Marshals will still apply.
