Staying COVIDSafe


  • Face masks are no longer required in most indoor settings but they are still recommended. Carry a mask when leaving home
  • It is strongly recommended that you wear a face mask indoors, if you can’t physically distance, have any symptoms, or if you are with people who may be vulnerable to COVID-19
  • You can reduce risks by maintaining 1.5 metre distance from others where possible, using hand sanitiser and practising good hygiene

Getting Back to Playgroup Guide

Playgroups work best when the most up-to-date communications is shared between attending families. There are many questions about how to prepare and what might need to be done differently at playgroup during the COVID-19 pandemic. This guide is to help you navigate through this.

The information in this booklet does not replace any official advice. It is intended to prompt you to think or ask about changes you might need to prepare for and implement so your playgroup is able to start again. By following the step by step process in this booklet, and using the resources developed, your playgroup will have the best chance to come back together safely, healthy and happily.

Electronic Recording Keeping for Victorian Playgroups

As part of the new COVID normal, we recommend playgroups register for a Victoria Government QR code. This enables more people to meet in a community venue. You may have seen these codes used in local cafes/businesses. Apply directly via the government website, print off the code and then playgroupers can scan in upon arrival.
