You can expect the usual Covid-19 questions as you enter the pavilion:

  • In the last 14 days have you travelled from overseas or a COVID-19 hotspot? Have you been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19?
  • Are you an active COVID-19 case?
  • Are you currently experiencing, or have you recently experienced, a cough, fever, sore throat, fatigue, loss of smell or taste, vomiting, diarrhoea or shortness of breath? Do you have COVID-19 symptoms?

If the answer is yes to any of these questions, please stay at home! We have the right to refuse service and will unfortunately insist that you leave the venue.

Help us by arriving half hour before the event starts to minimise delays at entrance as we go through the screening process. Please be patient and avoid crowding the entrance. Wait until the queue has cleared.

We all have a personal responsibility to maintain physical distance although we have measures in place throughout the event to make sure we all #StaySafe and free from outbreaks.

Please remember that an unexpected COVID outbreak could mean we have to cancel the event.
