COVID safety at Yaluk-ut Weelam Ngargee

In accordance with Government health advice, the following measures have been implemented for the wellbeing and safety of our community, audiences, stallholders, staff and artists. All processes will be regularly reviewed and adapted as required (see the bottom of this page for up-to-date safety checklists). 

Please ensure you are familiar with these processes, and if you’re feeling unwell, stay home.

Stay up to date with COVID information and government directives. Before leaving the house please check the event page and your email for notifications regarding changes to your booked session.

QR codes & e-Ticketing

At each event site there will be a QR code which we will require you to scan in to attend.

Events or Shows that are pre-registration or ticketed we recommend e-ticketing to reduce handling of materials. Display your QR code on your phone or device straight to staff at the venue door.  This means you DO NOT need to collect your ticket from a box office or print your order confirmation at home.

Physical distancing and crowds

Physical distancing measures will be in place as per the government regulations in the applicable state or territory at the time of your performance. Please be aware of your surroundings and adhere to physical distancing measures. If an event space is crowded, please stay away. Reduced venue capacity to allow 1.5m distancing. Avoid close contact and crowded places whenever you can and aim to keep approximately 1.5 metres distance from those around you in the community.
