Professional Reiki Practitioners operating a Home Based Business

In December, 2020 following advocacy by ARC the policy around the need for a separate entrance for home based businesses was revoked. At that time the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions said: a recent policy update means that home-based businesses can now operate without the prerequisite requirement of having an entrance that is separate to the entrance to the main residence.

 

With the arrival of the DELTA VARIANT of the COVID19 virus, that policy decision was reversed.

Below is the latest update to ARC from the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions:

"We can confirm the current position on access to home-based businesses is that if a home-based business is permitted to operate or open under the Authorised provider or authorised worker list, (Reiki Practitioners and Teachers are not included in this list) it may do so only if members of the public can access the premises by a separate entrance to the one used by those who reside at the premises, and their visitors. 

We note that this advice differs from advice that was provided to you in December 2020, however, the current restrictions are aimed at reducing transmission of the highly infectious Delta variant in our community. All restrictions implemented by the Government are based on public health advice (including epidemiological evidence) and legal advice (including as to compatibility with the Charter for Human Rights and Responsibilities) at the relevant time, in light of specific risks to public health and changes or measures proposed. Currently restrictions are reasonably necessary to protect public health and the Chief Health Officer (or delegate) continue to act in a way that is compatible with the Charter for Human Rights and Responsibilities".
