Earlier in the week, Adelaide Festival Centre has also announced that they are mandating vaccinations for individuals aged 16 and over from December 29 onwards. Audiences, artists, staff and suppliers will need to show proof of vaccination, with either their digital or printed COVID-19 certificate or hold a valid medical exemption to be granted entry in the Centre’s venues.
Venues under the Adelaide Festival Centre umbrella include Her Majesty’s Theatre, Dunstan Playhouse, Space Theatre, Artspace and the Festival Theatre. This includes all relevant foyers and function spaces as well.
The Adelaide Fringe and the Adelaide Festival Centre are the latest to join the slate of major South Australian businesses bringing in a vaccination mandate to ensure the safety of their staff and patrons.
Adelaide Oval, Zoos SA (Monarto Safari Park and Adelaide Zoo), and Adelaide Entertainment Centre are also amongst the line-up of businesses stating that individuals must show proof of vaccination to enter their venues.
