COVID-SAFE EVENTS

Events South Australia has received many questions from events and festivals organisers about holding COVID-safe events, and what is required by SA Health to do so. Please see below some useful resources for the South Australian events industry about COVID-19 and requirements including the COVID Management Plan, COVID Safe Plan, differing risk levels of events, how events are monitored, and much more.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA’S EVENTS CALENDAR
