During the ongoing COVID-19 situation, Look Over the Farm Gate has been working to ensure that the project can still achieve its purpose in supporting communities in building resilience and encouraging local action to look out for one another through difficult times, while keeping all members of the community safe.

Any event run as part of the LOFG program requires adherence to the Victorian Chief Health Officer directions as they stand at the time of the event – including physical distancing, capturing contact details of attendees for contact tracing, congregation number limits and hygiene recommendations. This information can be found at the Department of Health and Human Services Victoria’s restriction levels webpage.

Up to date COVID-19 restrictions and information can be viewed here.

On application, the community organisation must acknowledge the current COVID-19 restrictions, and confirm that the proposed event is COVID-19 compliant at the time of application.
