Covid Safe Policy CG 2022

Covid Safe Policy

While there is no mandatory requirement for those attending Clay Gulgong to be vaccinated or wear masks NSW Health has provided advice on testing and isolation recommendations for the community following exposure to COVID-19 should be considered when making decisions during your stay at the festival.

You are reminded that you MUST NOT attend Clay Gulgong if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. These include fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, loss of smell/taste, muscle/joint pains, diarrhoea, nausea/vomiting, extreme tiredness, unexplained chest pain, or conjunctivitis (eye infection).

If symptoms occur at any time, you should undertake a rapid antigen test. If a rapid antigen test is positive you should isolate as someone who has tested positive to COVID-19. If you cannot access a rapid antigen test, you can attend a PCR (nose and throat swab) testing clinic. Clay Gulgong will have a number of RAT kits available from its registration desk. Clay Gulgong is also providing masks to all its delegates and we ask that everyone is sensitive to fellow delegates and the local community by wearing a mask indoors and remaining aware of social distancing.

There will be hand sanitiser at the door of every venue Clay Gulgong is using for exhibitions and talks, and we are insistent that you sterilise your hands before entering.

Advice and further resources are available on the NSW Health website including COVID-19 guidelines and fact sheets for People who tested positive or were exposed to COVID-19. Additional resources are also available on the NSW Government website.
