UPDATE 8/5/2020 – CONFIRMED. Consumers/Customers are allowed to travel to our service, repair, dealer and retail members for the purposes of purchasing goods and services

The CIA VIC association has conducted intensive lobbying on behalf of its members to get urgent clarification on the ‘Restricted Activity Directions’ allowing people to travel for the purposes of purchasing goods and services from our members.

On the 6th May they received notification from the Victorian Government that makes it clear consumers/customers are allowed to travel to our service, repair, dealer and retail members for the purposes of purchasing goods and services. Further the statement makes it clear our members can conduct their business under the ‘Permission to Leave’ provisions of the restricted activity directions.

The statement/notification from the Victorian Government is outlined below:
  • Under the Victoria State of Emergency arising from the serious public health risk posed by Coronavirus (COVID-19), Victorians are being asked to stay at home and defer activities, where possible.
  • Victoria’s COVID-19 Directions allow people to leave their home to purchase necessary goods and services or have someone come to their home to do work, which could include caravan collection and repair services. Victoria’s COVID-19 Directions would also permit workers to leave their home to offer caravan collection and repair services. It is important to practise physical distancing if these services are offered.
  • Any services offered from a shop or dealer site would need to comply with the open retail facility requirements in Victoria’s COVID-19 Directions (e.g. signage, density and cleaning requirements).
  • It is also important to note that Victoria’s COVID-19 Directions currently require that certain accommodation services, including caravan parks, not to operate under the State of Emergency.
  • More information on restrictions affecting businesses and how to apply physical distancing in the workplace is available on the DHHS website here: www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/business-sector-coronavirus-disease-covid-19
  • The Victorian Government has launched a $1.7 billion Economic Survival Package to support businesses and workers through the impacts of coronavirus. Details of the support available to businesses can be found at www.business.vic.gov.au.

We recommend that you continue to monitor Victoria’s Department of Health and Health Services website for any changes to the directions and how they might impact your industry.
