The COVID-19 situation continues to evolve rapidly. At this stage, the risk of community spread of COVID-19 in NSW is low, and according to the NSW Health Government Department, it does not propose altering arrangements for public events. It is important to note that this advice is subject to change as the situation evolves.
We should also stress, the conference is going ahead as planned.
At the time of writing a pandemic has not been declared. However, if you require further resources and information regarding COVID-19 we encourage you to visit the NSW Health website.
The conference venue has held management and team meetings with all staff to develop and explain the strategy and action plan:
- We have initiated a heightened hygienic cleaning process
- We have increased hygiene signage posted through the venue (both in hard copy and digital) in bathrooms, lifts, and offices
- We have placed additional sanitisers and ISO wipes in all public areas
- We have taken the step to increase food service staff to portion serve buffets and sandwiches to reduce possible cross contamination
- We will continue to monitor and review our plan
If you are an event attendee, we encourage you to:
- If you are feeling at all unwell, stay home and speak to your primary care provider
- Stay home and not attend if you have been to a country considered at higher risk of COVID-19 in the past 14 days
- Practice simple hygiene by thoroughly washing your hands upon arriving at the venue, before and in-between sessions, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
