Major Adelaide venues mandate double covid

vaccinations to all visitors

December 2021 Adelaide Oval has been the first major venue to announce it will become a double-vaccination only venue from November 23, when South Australia’s borders open. Since Adelaide Oval’s announcement, the Adelaide Zoo, Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide Entertainment Centre and Hindmarsh Stadium have all followed suit. The Zoos SA mandate will apply from December 1. The mandate for Adelaide Convention Centre, Adelaide Entertainment Centre and Hindmarsh Stadium applies to all people over the age of 16, while Adelaide Oval’s policy is for patrons over the age of 12. The Stadium Management Authority’s chief executive Andrew Daniels said proof of double vaccination will be required of all game and event patrons, all functions and events guests and all visitors to the stadium. It will also include anyone taking part in the RoofClimb. Patrons will only be admitted to the venues if they provide proof of vaccination or a valid exemption. Crowds of up to 35,000 will be admitted to the 52,000 capacity stadium for the Ashes Test beginning on December 16. People will be required to wear a mask at all times other than when eating or drinking. “We will be enforcing this requirement because it is a very important safety and welfare issue,” Mr Daniels said. “Our job is to show absolute clarity to our patrons, to make sure people are comfortable and confident that when they come to the Adelaide Oval, it is a very covid-safe environment. Mr Daniels said he expected the mandate to be in place for a “long period of time” and therefore include the 2022 AFL season. In October, the AFL announced a no jab, no play vaccination policy. He said officials would be checking proof of vaccinations on phones or alternatively visitors could show a hard copy of their vaccination certificate along with proof of identification. Meanwhile, the South Australian Ambulance Service has doubled its intern intake and will train university students to support paramedics in dealing with the caseload from COVID-19 outbreaks.
