COVID VACCINATION UPDATES

The 2022 McGregor Summer Creative Arts Workshops will be operating under a COVID Safe Plan. As you may be aware, the Queensland Government has recently introduced additional measures for businesses in relation to vaccination requirements for a range of activities. As per Government restrictions, some activities will only be available to staff, tutors, participants or students who are fully vaccinated (or have evidence of a medical contraindication).

Specific Government Requirements for Vaccination

All University food outlets (including the Refectory, USQ Fresh and Bounce Cafe)

  • Only patrons/participants/staff/tutors that are fully vaccinated (or those with evidence of a medical contraindication) can dine in.
  • Other patrons/participants/staff/tutors who are not fully vaccinated can obtain take-away meals.

Evening entertainment activities (including Cultural Dance, Jen Does Joni concert, Tutor Concert and Final Music Concert)

  • Only patrons/participants/staff/tutors that are fully vaccinated (or those with evidence of a medical contraindication) can attend these events.
  • Given that the performance component is an integral part of the overall Music program this means that tutors and participants in the Music program over the age of 16 years need to be fully vaccinated (or evidence of a medical contraindication).
