COVID 19

Some choir relevant links, reports and research

For latest information on Queensland Government statistics, restrictions and roadmaps go to:

 

https://www.qld.gov.au/health/conditions/health-alerts/coronavirus-covid-19

 

For restrictions as they apply to choirs Qld Health directed us to Qld Workplace Health & Safety, who in turn advised that:

  1. as a government-registered Not For Profit organisation (with an ABN) our choir's ‘core business activities’ fall under restrictions that apply to ‘business’ rather than ‘social’ events.

  2. for specific guidance applying to choir rehearsals, and to develop a COVID Safe Industry Plan, our reference is ‘choirs’ as per the provisions of the Places of Worship COVID Safe Industry Plan. 

  3. for guidance relating to the staging of concerts or performances we operate under the provisions of the COVID Safe Industry Plan for theatres and public performance venues.
