Master Builders Victoria has received confirmation from the Victorian State Government that the stage one restrictions announced by the Prime Minister do not apply to essential activities, which includes construction sites, where it is necessary for their normal operation. However, strict social distancing and hygiene practices are required in these settings. 

Master Builders Victoria has developed clear guidelines for our members to keep their sites safe and open.  Please call our team on (03) 9411 4555. 

Master Builders Victoria remains available to support our members. The health and safety of our members, our team, sponsors and stakeholders is of the utmost importance to us.  

The Statement from The Premier says: 

“The businesses that will close due to the Stage 1 shutdown include pubs, clubs, nightclubs, Crown Casino, and licensed venues in hotels and pubs. It also includes gyms, indoor sporting venues, places of worship, cinemas and entertainment venues. Restaurants and cafes will only be allowed to provide home delivery or takeaway services. 

This decision and other containment measures are meaningless if Victorians don’t take them seriously or don’t think they will be caught if they flout the rules.”
