SCA (Vic) Coordinate with Victorian Government on COVIDSafe Settings for Strata
Updated: Jun 2, 2021
Strata Community Association (Vic) have reached out and sought clarity from the Victorian Government over the past week, concerning future COVIDSafe protocols applicable to the strata sector.
Advice received by SCA (Vic) from the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR) states that social visitors are not required to check in to apartment blocks that are solely inhabited by occupants (this does not include short-stay accommodation services such as Airbnb, or where check ins are required for shared, communal areas).
This is instead highly recommended by the Victorian Government as a means of best practice for ensuring prompt contact tracing in the event of a future outbreak of COVID-19 on or within a property.
Furthermore, SCA (Vic) have received advice that record keeping is only required for other visitors (such as tradespeople or couriers) when they attend a facility or venue on the property for a period of longer than 15 minutes.

SCA (Vic) will continue to work alongside DJPR into the future to ensure that COVIDSafe regulations for the strata sector are fair, clearly defined and fit for purpose, to best keep people safe and keep Victoria open.
