The health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers to World Science Festival Brisbane and Queensland Museum is our priority.
We are taking regular advice from Queensland Health and we are planning and prepared for circumstances to change quickly, as Government recommendations evolve we will continue to update information about WSFB attendance.
The world has changed in the last 12 months and the Festival has had to change also, so some things will be different this year – we have made more of our program available online, we’re avoiding mass gatherings and everyone will have to check in at events.
But this is the new normal, and we’ll get there together!
Update – 26 March 2021
COVID-19 update: We are aware a community transmission of Covid has been recorded in Brisbane.
So what does this mean for the festival this weekend?
All events are still proceeding, but we need to keep the following in mind:
– Stay at home if you are unwell (this one is really important!)
– Stay 1.5 metres apart from others, wear a mask is this is not possible
– Wash your hands regularly or use our sanitisation stations
– Avoid touching your face, cover coughs and sneezes
– Visitor capacity limits will apply to all venues
– All guests will need to check-in to events
– We’ll have frequent cleaning in progress at all venues, in line with our COVID-Safe Plan.
Remember more of our program is available online this year, so if you can’t make it to us jump online and what one of our recorded conversations, videos or live streams.
