Katoomba Easter Convention's response to COVID-19
Katoomba Easter Convention is focused on protecting the health and safety of all visitors, volunteers and staff. Our policies are meant to protect the health and wellbeing of everyone at KEC, whether attending the convention or staying at one of our accommodation facilities.
To keep our community safe while delivering KEC, 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 KEC 2021.
What can you do to help?
What we can do to help each other:
While our goal at Easter Convention is to make sure staff, volunteers and attendees are informed and we follow government guidelines regarding the safety of guests, it is vital that you also cooperate and do your part to ensure the health and wellbeing of those around you are protected.
Please be aware that if you have a child attending any of the children’s programs and is (or becomes) unwell during the program, the team leader may call you to pick them up.
Please be understanding in these circumstances as we try to do the best for everyone attending. Please also be kind to our volunteer teams, who have the big job of looking after so many over the weekend!
