Is it safe to attend?

Dowerin GWN7 Machinery Field Days takes the safety of their staff, exhibitors and attendees very seriously and has been working tirelessly to ensure that our Field Days are compliant with all COVID-19 Safe requirements as required by the state government.

 

Key COVID-19 Safe measures include:

  • Updated layout of pavilions to enable increased physical distancing and ‘air flow’.
  • Physically distanced queuing systems.
  • Implementation of COVID-19 Marshals.
  • Set ‘entry’ and ‘exit’ points monitored by COVID-19 Marshals.
  • Capped number of people at any one time within the venue in line with the state government event requirements in place at the time of the event. Please note that these are subject to change at any time.
  • Increased venue cleaning including pre-event, during and post event cleaning by trained hygiene officers with particular emphasis on high touch points.
  • Management of attendee numbers to allow for the 1.5 metre social distancing.
  • Pre-registration of attendees along with checking in of attendees to ensure everyone is tracked.

 

Will there be restricted numbers on site?
