Hosting a COVID Safe event at EPIC

COVID Safe Event Protocol

A COVID Safe Event Protocol has been developed by the ACT Government to assist with returning events to the ACT.

The protocol outlines how public community events for more than 100 people at public venues can be held while COVID-19 restrictions remain in place, and how to apply for the necessary exemption for the event.

It includes information on the types of events that will be able to take place in the ACT and remain COVID Safe. Under the current Public Health Directions exemptions are no longer required, however, events with over 5,000 attendees are required to notify ACT Health of their event and provide a COVID Safety Plan for review.

Event organisers should reference the Covid Smart Events factsheet: Organising-COVID-Smart-events.pdf (
