Talk2 Media & Events COVID-19 Plan

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Talk2 ME have moved all remaining 2020 shows to 2021.  Some of these events may look different and we have taken the opportunity to evolve the way in which we will deliver events in the future.

As we start to welcome back events in 2021, we will continue to work with the relevant health authorities at our venues and at the State and Federal level to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved.


FAQs about COVID-19

What are the general health recommendations during shows as a result of COVID-19?

The following guidelines are set out by the WHO and the Australian Government:

  • Frequently clean hands by using alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water;
  • When coughing and sneezing cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – throw the tissue away immediately and wash hands;
  • Avoid close contact with anyone who has a fever and cough;
  • If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing seek medical care early and share previous travel history with your health care provider;
  • The consumption of raw or undercooked animal products should be avoided. Raw meat, milk or animal organs should be handled with care, to avoid cross-contamination with uncooked foods, as per good food safety practices

What are the first signs of infection of COVID-19?

Symptoms may include fever, cough, sore throat, nausea/vomiting, and difficulty breathing. Difficulty breathing is a sign of possible pneumonia and requires immediate medical attention.   It can take up to 14 days for symptoms to show after a person has been infected.

What if I have concerns about recent development of symptoms onsite at an event?

Our central point of contact will be at the Organisers office located on the show floor, which is staffed at all times during show hours.

What happens if detection occurs?

Once detection has occurred event security in consultation with Talk2 ME will notify venue security Operations Manager who will escort the individual to the first aid room for isolation.  The local state Department of Health will be called to discuss further actions.
