HAVE SYMPTOMS? - DON'T ATTEND
COVID-19 affects different people in different ways. Most infected people will develop mild to moderate illness and recover without hospitalization. The symptoms of COVID-19 are very similar to the symptoms you have if you have a cold with the most common symptoms being fever, dry cough and tiredness. Less common symptoms include aches and pains, sore throat, diarrhoea, conjunctivitis, headache, loss of taste or smell a rash on skin or discolouration of fingers or toes.
If you are exhibiting any of these symptoms, please don't come to the 2021 Mingenew Midwest Expo and seek medical advice as soon as you can.
To comply with our COVID plan we need to have a registration system upon entry so that if an outbreak occurs, contact tracing can take place and WA Health can get in touch with everyone who was at the show on a given day. We will use several methods to enforce this registration system.
SAFEWA REGISTRATION - Everyone must scan this SafeWA QR code each day that you are coming to Mingenew Midwest Expo grounds.
MANUAL REGISTRATION - At the gate upon entry if you do not scan the SafeWA app on your phone you will be required to complete the SafeWA registration slip and provide us with your name, phone number. There will be a secure box to place this slip into inside the gate.
Important note to those working on grounds during bump in & bump out:
To comply with our COVID plan our system of entry needs to be as contactless as possible.
Our gate entry will look a little different this year- please follow the instructions of gate staff, signs and footpaths.
Pre-purchased ticket via ticket link - upon arrival at entry gate you must remain in your vehicle whilst your ticket is scanned.
VEHICLE ENTRY- if entering in the grounds in your vehicle you must remain in your vehicle as you pay gate entry fees on arrival.
PEDESTRIAN ENTRY- if entering using pedestrian gates you must maintain physical distancing as you pay gate entry fees on arrival.
For those who have not pre-purchased an entry ticket online you will be asked to provide your name and phone number and can pay using the following methods:
THE BEST WAY: Scan your pre-purchased electronic ticket
A GREAT WAY: Pay using tap and go EFTPOS
