The WOMADelaide Foundation has conducted a comprehensive Covid-19 Risk Assessment for prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery. The event will be held in accordance with SA Health direction and we will provide updates as necessary via website, social media, and direct communication with ticket buyers.
By purchasing or accepting tickets, patrons acknowledge that, even with control measures in place at the event, there remains an unquantifiable risk of transmission of viral illness, including COVID-19. By attending, patrons acknowledge that they have considered those risks and their own personal circumstances, including any health condition or vulnerability that they may have, and the circumstances of persons with whom patrons may be in close contact following attendance to the event.
Patrons acknowledge that, for a small number of people, COVID-19 has very serious health consequences. We expressly rely on patrons to bring this health issue waiver to the attention of any guest(s) of the patron.
