COVIDSafe at KYCK
After a challenging year, we look forward to welcoming our youth back to Katoomba for KYCK!
To keep our community safe while delivering KYCK, we are working to ensure our event is compliant with all COVIDSafe requirements as directed by the NSW Government. To make sure we can come together safely, we will be introducing the below measures at KYCK 2021.
- Increased hand washing and hand sanitisation stations.
- Updated layout to enable increased physical distancing and ‘air flow’.
- Physically distanced queuing systems.
- Set ‘entry’ and ‘exit’ points for our auditorium and other venues onsite monitored by COVID Marshals.
- Capped numbers of people at any one time in meeting and dining areas. These numbers will depend on NSW Government event guidelines in place at the time of the event and are subject to change e.g. 2 square metre and 4 square metre ruling.
- Increased venue cleaning including pre-event, during and post event cleaning by hygiene officers with particular emphasis on high touch points.
- Reduced attendance numbers to allow for 1.5 metre distancing at all times (the set attendance will depend on advice provided by NSW Health prior to the event, and these figures are subject to change).
For more information see Frequently Asked Questions below.
