COVID-19 Safety

Safety Measures

The Monash Maker Faire will be implementing health and safety measures in keeping with the Victorian Chief Health Officer’s health and safety advice for public events, the Department of Education and Training’s School Operations Guide, and Monash University’s on-campus OHS measures.

 

The Monash Maker Faire partners encourage adult visitors and volunteers to be vaccinated for COVID-19 and Influenza.

Our operating arrangements function in partnership with students’ classroom teachers who maintain a duty of care for their students who are attending the event.

On entry attendees will be asked to declare any symptoms.

If symptoms exist or develop throughout the day, we ask that attendees please leave the Faire and return home.
