    We kindly ask that all guests adhere to social distancing requirements. Social distancing continues to be the strongest safeguard to prevent the spread of COVID-19. You must continue to maintain a safe distance of no less than 1.5 metres between yourself and others, where safe and practical.

    Personal hygiene is an important protection against COVID-19 and all respiratory illnesses. Practising good hand hygiene is your best defence. Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of your elbow. Dispose of used tissues immediately using a rubbish bin.

    Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds. A handwashing station is available in the bathroom with liquid soap, paper towel and hand sanitiser. Hand sanitiser is also widely present throughout the venue. Just ask our friendly staff if you can't find one.

    COVID-safe behaviours will remain an essential part of taking care of each other for the foreseeable future. We all need to play our role in protecting ourselves from COVID-19 and taking care of the people around us. To learn more, visit the website below.
