Red Light

At RED, action is needed to protect at-risk people and protect our health system from an unsustainable number of hospitalisations. For those of our heritage places and workplaces that are open at red, here’s how it works:

  • Wear a mask. You must legally wear a face covering while inside.
  • Maintain physical distancing. You must stay 1 meter from people not part of your immediate family and friend group.
  • Sanitise. Dispensers are located throughout properties and workplaces, and we’re also cleaning continually.
  • Follow Covid-19 health measures. Stay home if you’re sick, cover coughs with your elbow, and wash your hands regularly.
  • Guided tours: Group sizes will be managed to ensure physical distancing.
  • There may be capacity limits in place for the property or workplace at Red.
