Professional Reiki Practitioners operating a Home Based Business

There had been confusion around resumption of in person Reiki Treatments from your home/residence.

 

ARC President was in constant communication with the Victorian DHHS, Business VIC and Minister for Small Business advocating for a change to the rules that required a separate entrance for home based Reiki Practitioners. 

In response to ARC's advocacy, on the 9th December ARC received an email from the Industry Coordination and Recovery Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions has confirmed the following

"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."

COVIDSafe Plan must be in place. The work space is subject to the density quotient and cleaning requirements as per other work settings.
