All clubs/organisations are to fill in a COVID-Safe Plan before commencing activities.

How to create a COVID-Safe Plan

Fill out the form on covid-19.sa.gov.au to create your COVID-Safe Plan. Your completed form is your Plan. This Plan will outline how your staff, volunteers and patrons can be kept safe from COVID-19.

Am I required to create a COVID-Safe Plan?

If your business was previously directed to close, then you must complete a Plan before you reopen.

If you have not completed a Plan, do not have this available at your premises, or do not comply with current Directions, you can be fined up to $5,000.

Completing and implementing your Plan is the best way to ensure your business is compliant and COVID-safe for your staff, volunteers and patrons.

While any other businesses are not required to complete a COVID-Safe Plan, they are encouraged to do so to help keep South Australia safe.

Take the following steps to get started

  1. Refer to official COVID-19 advice and directions to help you complete this plan. Carefully review this website and www.safeworkaustralia.gov.au.
  2. Head to the 'Create a COVID-Safe Plan' page and fill out the Plan. If your business has several premises, each venue will need a separate Plan.
  3. Discuss and share relevant details of your plan with staff, volunteers, contractors and suppliers so that everyone is aware of what they need to do and what they can expect.
  4. Implement the steps you have agreed to as best you can. Remember: the requirements on the form are obligations – you may face a fine if you do not comply with these.
  5. Review your plan regularly and make changes as and when required. COVID-19 is a fast-changing situation, and the South Australian Government responds to this via a step-by-step approach to easing certain restrictions.
  6. Print and make this plan available at your premises.

COVID-Management Plans

A COVID-Management Plan, approved by SA Health, will be required for:

  • a defined public activity where more than 1000 people are reasonably expected to be present at or participating in the activity
  • the onsite purchase and consumption of food or beverages at a place where the total number of persons present at the place for the purpose of the purchase and consumption of food or beverages is reasonably expected to exceed 1000 people
  • the operation of a nightclub
  • the operation of relevant licensed premises

In some cases, your events/business/activity may require both a COVID Management Plan and a COVID-Safe Plan for each vendor.
