Alert Level 2 Event Guidelines
Ticketed large events, including conferences & business events, theatres and stadiums are subject to a 100 person limit (not including staff).
From the 30th of May, multiple groups of 100 are allowed provided they are in separate 'defined spaces’ of the venue. Record-keeping for contact tracing is required for workers and customers attending, and people are required to adhere to 1 metre distancing from others they do not know, where practicable.
Large ticketed events must:
- be seated
- able to keep attendance records effectively (i.e. allowing for contact tracing)
- having physical distancing in place
- have good hygiene procedures
- and that any food and drink must meet the hospitality provisions.
Therefore, when planning events, the questions to ask are:
- Can your event support seated guests?
- Can your event support physical distancing?
- Can your event allow for appropriate hand-washing facilities, and keep communal areas such as bathrooms clean?
- Can you collect adequate information for contact tracing? Contacting tracing means collecting and maintaining accurate records which include a person’s full name, their address, an effective means of communicating with them (for example, a current phone number or email address) and the time at which the person arrived and left the event. The health position statement on record-keeping and the privacy commission guidelines both suggest this information should be held for two months.
