The Industry COVID Safe Plan for Queensland's Live Performance Venues/Theatres was approved by Queensland Health on July 2, 2020. Concert venues, theatres and auditoriums are allowed to open and can now have up to 50% capacity or one person per 4 square metres (whichever is the greater), with a COVID Safe Plan.

To opt-in to the Plan:

  • you need to be able to comply with the Checklist contained in the Plan.
  • you must display a Certificate of Compliance in your venue before opening.

You are not required to submit the Checklist or Certificate to Queensland Health, however a relevant enforcement officer can check compliance at any time and/or may ask for a copy of the signed checklist.

A number of information sessions will be conducted to launch the Industry Plan. To join one of these sessions, or for further information, please email Suzan.

Please feel free to copy parts of the Plan if developing your own plans, risk assessments or WHS Plans.


Stage Queensland thanks all members, committee members, working group, taskforce members involved in the consultation, and for sharing your skills and knowledge to inform the Plan. Thanks also to Arts Queensland for their support in developing the Plan and to PAC Australia and VAPAC for sharing their Guidelines and allowing us to reference them as required.
