COVIDSAFE AND WELLBEING PLAN

YOUR SAFETY & WELLBEING

East Doncaster Secondary College’s Performing Arts Centre COVIDSafe & Wellbeing Plan details our commitment to protecting your health, safety and wellbeing during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic when you come to the theatre.

Safety has always been our number one priority, with layers of safety measures integrated into our everyday operations.

Please take a moment to review this information to understand our current health and safety protocols.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our theatre.

COVIDSAFE PRINCIPLES

It is mandatory for every Victorian business to have a COVIDSafe Plan for each worksite. East Doncaster Secondary College’s Performing Arts Centre COVIDSafe & Wellbeing Plan outlines the COVID-19 safety precautions we have in place throughout the opening up of our theatre. This will ensure the safety and wellbeing of all who visit us; including our members, patrons, performers, hirers and team members.

These basic principles must be adhered to throughout your time with us.

ENSURE PHYSICAL DISTANCING

WEAR A FACE MASK

PRACTICE GOOD HYGIENE

Will there be conditions of entry to attending East Doncaster Secondary College’s Performing Arts Centre?

These conditions of entry apply to everyone attending all areas of our site (indoor and outdoor) and are subject to change without notice at the discretion of East Doncaster Secondary College’s Performing Arts Centre.

By entering our Theatre, you agree to abide by the health and safety measures outlined in the East Doncaster Secondary College’s Performing Arts Centre COVIDSafe & Wellbeing Plan. This can include but is not limited to, physical distancing, temperature screenings, sanitisation and restricted public access. Failure to comply with these measures may result in you being asked to leave our venue.

You will be required to register your attendance at the theatre by using the QR code provided by the company who is hosting their event, conveniently placed at the front door, or if not using the code, by signing the attendance register at the Box Office desk. Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the theatre complex. We encourage everyone to download the Australian Government’s COVIDSafe app to enhance contact tracing while at the venue and beyond.

If you have the following symptoms, however mild, you must not enter our site:

Fever; chills or sweats, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, and loss of sense of smell or taste. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms please get tested and quarantine at home until you receive your test results. You will need to contact the event provider regarding any payments made.

East Doncaster Secondary College’s Performing Arts Centre is adhering to current Victorian Government COVIDSafe restrictions. Please carry a mask at all times. East Doncaster Secondary College’s Performing Arts Centre requires that masks must be worn indoors at all times (unless drinking), or where physical distancing is not possible. We do understand that some people have medical exemptions for wearing masks and will respect this fact. Children under the age of 12 will not be required to wear a face mask.

East Doncaster Secondary College’s Performing Arts Centre retains the right to refuse entry to any person who refuses to adhere to health and safety measures.

How will changes to restrictions impact my ticket purchase and seating, and how do I buy a ticket to a show?

Events currently at East Doncaster Secondary College’s Performing Arts Centre are being sold according to current Victorian COVIDSafe guidelines. Event Hirers will need to abide by these regulations.

1. Government changes to COVIDSafe restrictions may result in changes to seating configurations in our venue. Should this happen, the event hirer may be unable to accommodate requests to change seating. Capacity is limited, and not all seats in our pre-COVID seating configuration will be available for purchase. Restrictions and specific requirements in response to COVID-19 may change between the time you secure tickets and the time you attend.

2. In the event that our allowable capacity reduces, or other government regulations prevent performances, East Doncaster Secondary College’s Performing Arts Centre will contact the event Hirers.

CLEANING POLICY

All areas of the theatre are cleaned on a regular basis and will be cleaned before and after each performance in accordance with the COVIDSafe guidelines.
