Stay COVID Safe

Being COVID Safe is a shared responsibility. We want you to enjoy the Festival and stay safe. Please follow COVID Safe practices when attending Festival events.

Not feeling well? Stay home if you are unwell or have a cough, fever, sore throat, fatigue or shortness of breath.
Keep 1.5m between yourself and others. You may attend events in your social or household group. Keep distance between yourself and other attendees.
Practice good hand hygiene. Wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitiser where provided.
COVID Safe App. Download and run the Federal Government’s official COVIDSafe app.


COVID Safe messages
COVID Safe messages may be delivered before, during and after events. Listen out for information, look for our COVD Safe signage and follow the directions.

QR Codes
Look for the QR code and register on arrival to all events in public spaces.

Feeling unwell during an event
If you become unwell during an event, please locate an event staff member or seek first aid.

Right to refuse
Businesses have the right to refuse service and must insist that anyone displaying COVID-19 symptoms leaves the venue. This applies to events held in and around the Festival venues, as well as in public event spaces managed by Storyfest.

If an event space is crowded, stay away.

Public Transport
Using public transport? Keep up to date with COVID Safe travel updates.

Storyfest is delivered under a COVID Safe plan. Our COVID Safe plan will be updated to align with the changing situation and our website will be updated with additional information over time.
