COVID-19 VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS
It is currently a Victorian Government requirement for all patrons attending venues and events aged 12 years 2 months or over to show proof of their full-vaccination status to our staff and/or volunteers upon entry into the venue and at registration. This is a condition of competition entry.
All competitors, visitors, exhibitors, contractors, staff, and volunteers over 12 years and 2 months entering the tournament and the GoFish Nagambie Hub will need to show full COVID-19 vaccination status as a condition of entry. For a definition on what fully vaccinated means visit https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/how-we-live-vaccination-status.
When you arrive at our venue (including GoFish Nagambie Campgrounds) and registration you will be asked to show proof of vaccination by one of our friendly staff or volunteers. The quickest and easiest way to show proof of vaccination is by adding your COVID-19 digital certificate to the Service Victoria app.
If you don’t have a smartphone or are unable to use one, there are additional non-digital proof of vaccination status options available including an official copy of your Australian Immunisation Register vaccination certificate or a printed copy of your digital vaccination certificate from myGov alongside photo identification. Visit https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/get-your-covid-19-digital-certificate to find out more.
Please note visitors that have a medical exemption are excluded from this requirement. Please show evidence of your medical exemption alongside photo identification—such as a medical certificate or a letter from a medical practitioner when entering the tournament venue and at registration.
The event organiser has the right to refuse entry to someone who cannot or will not show proof of vaccination or a valid exemption. Legal protections are in place. Patrons and visitors must prove their vaccination or exemption status to enter our venues and/or the tournament.
COVID-19 vaccination requirements are subject to change in line with Victorian Statement Government and health directive updates.
