Resources and guidance to help you complete a COVID-19 Safety Plan for your controlled outdoor event.

Be COVID Safe. Stay in business.

NSW Health advice regarding singing and chanting

Group singing and chanting remains a high-risk activity for transmission of COVID-19 should someone involved be infected. To help mitigate this risk, NSW Health has provided advice regarding singing and chanting in indoor and outdoor settings.

See NSW Health advice regarding singing and chanting.

How many people are allowed

Full details are provided in the physical distancing section of the COVID-19 Safety Plan.

 

Attendance at controlled outdoor events Maximum capacity summary
Events where attendees are assigned to a seat 3,000 patrons, or one patron per 2 square metres, whichever is less.

COVID-19 Safety Plans are mandatory

Under Public Health Orders all controlled outdoor events must complete a COVID-19 Safety Plan.

Complete the plan in consultation with staff, then share it with them.

The organisers of controlled outdoor events should also consider the benefits of registering as COVID Safe.

Keep your plan up to date

You may need to update the plan in the future, as restrictions and advice changes.

You will need to have an up to date plan at your premises at all times and be able to show it to an authorised officer if requested.


Your COVID-19 Safety Plan

You can either:

  • use the provided COVID-19 Safety Plan to address the checklist of matters for controlled outdoor events
  • keep using your existing plan, if you have one, after making sure it includes all the items in the provided COVID-19 Safety Plan.
