Peninsula businesses that are still allowed to operate during lockdown are required by law to issue permitted worker permits to staff who have to travel to work. But what exactly are they and who must use them?

Simply put, a permitted worker permit identifies the holder as an employee of a business that is allowed to continue operating during the current Stage 4 lockdown. It is the responsibility of the employer to issue the permit, and the employee must carry it at all times when travelling to or from work, together with photo ID. Permits may only be issued if:
• The workplace is on the list of permitted activities;
• The employee is working in an approved category for on-site work; and,
• The employee cannot work from home.

In some specific circumstances, an employee will not need a worker permit, including:
• If the employee is at risk at home, such as at risk of family violence; and
• If the employee works in law enforcement, emergency services, or the health sector and carries employer-issued photographic identification that clearly identifies the employer.

Even if they have been issued with a worker permit, however, employees must not use it if:
• They test positive to COVID-19 and are required to self-isolate; or,
• They are a close contact of someone who has tested positive.

More information on permitted worker permits and a list of permitted business activities is available here.

There are currently 65 active COVID-19 cases in the Frankston local government area, and 29 in the Mornington Peninsula local government area.
