Venue Questions

How do I sign up?

Simply fill in our contact form and a member of our team will reach out within 24 hours to get you started. In most cased we can have you running the same day.

How do my guests check-in?

Once we have registered your venue we suggest you print and place the provided posters around your venue. For QR code plan, your guests will need to scan the QR code and enter their details in manually. For Express Check In plan they can simply sms a venue code to our number and it will automatically check them in.

What information do I need to collect?

Each state has their own requirements, for example Victoria requires the collection of the room and table number the guest is seated. As these requirements change we will adjust our system to comply.

Is this a paid service?

The QR Code Limited check in plan is not a validated guest capture tool. This service has a once-off charge of $100.

The COVID compliant express plan is a guest validation and management tool.

What venues does this apply to?

This applies to restaurants and cafes that offer table service to serve food. This includes standalone cafes and restaurants, restaurants and bistros within a pub, bar, registered and licensed club, RSL and community club or hotel, and fast food outlets, cafeterias and canteens.

Restrictions on other spaces in these venues – including public bars and gaming areas – will remain in place throughout June, as will restrictions on food courts. Closed areas within these venues cannot be calculated as part of the four square metre rule.

Venues with multiple divided spaces can have up to 20 patrons in each space as long as they comply with density requirements and there are controls in place for shared spaces, e.g. foyers and bathrooms. Tables should be spaced 1.5 metres apart.

What are the penalties for noncompliance?

Victoria Police can issue on the spot fines of up to $1,652 for individuals and up to $9,913 for businesses for:  

  • Refusing or failing to comply with the emergency directions;   
  • Refusing or failing to comply with a public health risk power direction   
  • Refusing or failing to comply with a direction by the Chief Health Officer to provide information.

Fines of up to $20,000 for individuals and $100,000 for businesses are possible through the court system.

How will you enforce this? Who will enforce it?

Directions will continue to be enforced through spot checks by Victoria Police and use of emergency powers by DHHS and Local Government Authorised Officers to ensure compliance with the directions of the Chief Health Officer.

As restrictions are eased, industry bodies, Victoria Police, Worksafe, DHHS and Local Government Authorised Officers will work together under both under the Directions and existing legislative and regulatory frameworks to boost education and remediation, in addition to driving enforcement and compliance with the Directions.

Community members can raise concerns about compliance with directions through the Police Assistance Line (PAL) on 131 444. Workers can raise concerns via Worksafe on 03 9641 1555. And employers can talk to their industry regulator or Peak body for specific industry related support.

A Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak Joint Intelligence Unit has been established to support comprehensive preparedness and responses to outbreaks and identify and manage outbreak risks.

The Department of Health and Human Services and WorkSafe will co-ordinate intelligence and information on businesses that are non-compliant.
