Professional Reiki Practitioners operating a Home Based Business

With the welcome partial reopening of businesses, particularly in Victoria and New South Wales. Reiki Practitioners and Reiki teachers can start seeing clients and students. However, they must adhere to the regulations in place in each State and Territory.

 For those who operate out of a rented/commercial/retail premises the regulations and guidelines are clear.

For Home Based businesses the regulations in VIC and NSW have been confusing. Following numerous phone calls and email to the relevant Ministers and Government departments and questions raised during their online forums, ARC President finally received clarification for members.

In Victoria

The Department for Jobs, Precincts and Regions confirmed:

that for now, Reiki business owners fit under Restricted Retail Settings.

Home-based business may operate subject to compliance with density quotient and requirement for a separate entrance and exit to the home.

Home-based businesses without separate entrance and exit to the home must comply with private gathering limits.

EVERY business owner must be fully vaccinated in order to see clients and their clients must be fully vaccinated.

Therefore you can operate a home based business providing you and your clients are fully vaccinated, you meet all the COVID safe regulations including QR code check in  and confirmation of clients vaccination status.

In New South Wales, 

The Treasury COVID-19 Policy Coordination Taskforce on behalf of Minister for Finance and Small Business confirmed, that under the current Public Health (COVID-19 General) Order 2021 (PHO):

For home businesses – The standard vaccine requirements and capacity limits for a ‘place of residence’ apply (e.g. no unvaccinated adults, no more than 10 visitors at any one time and only when all members of the household over the age of 16 are vaccinated), not a ‘business premise’, apply to a home business.

Schedule 6 specifically excludes ‘home businesses’ from the definition of a ‘business premise’.

Therefore, if a ‘home business’ is run out of a ‘place of residence’ then the standard rules for a ‘place of residence’ apply.
