Hall Hire

Can we open Scout halls for hall hires?

Halls can be opened for hire subject to the following restrictions:

  • Commercial hirers must have a COVIDSafe Plan that is specific to their industry. A personal training hirer has some specific requirements, such as COVID Marshall.
  • Private hirers must follow a Scouts Victoria COVIDSafe Plan

Hall hire capacity restrictions:

  • 1 person per 2 sqm where QR codes are used, otherwise 1 person per 4 sqm.

Lessor restrictions (e.g. council leased property) may also be in place, you should confirm with your lessor whether there are additional restrictions to accept hall hires at your leased property.

Do we need a COVID Marshall for hall hires?

COVID Marshalls are required for indoor gyms and exercise facilities where the exercise is a strength or cardio activity. This may affect some Hall hires. In general, the person providing the training would also be the COVID Marshall.

Do we need a QR Code for hall hires?

Certain hall hirers can operate at higher density (1 person per 2 sqm) if electronic records using QR codes are used. To enable that, you must register the facility with the Victorian Government QR Code Service. Refer to the QR Code page in the FAQs.
