How we ensure a COVID SAFE Expo

OUR PLAN

Everyday precautions
Practising good hygiene is the first step in preventing the spread of infectious diseases.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and running water, for at least 20 seconds. Dry them with paper towel or a hand dryer. Alternatively use alcohol based hand sanitisers.
  • Try not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow.
  • Do not attend the SA Sheep Expo if you’re unwell to avoid making others sick.

  • keep at least 1.5 metres distance from others wherever and whenever possible

  • pay using tap-and-go instead of cash.
