COVID Safe Plan

COVID-19 Safety

Our commitment to you 

We acknowledge that our delegates are professionals in clinical and academic settings. Many are responsible for providing information and services in the management and response to COVID-19.

We take seriously our responsibility to keep you safe while attending the Interprofessional Colloquium 2021.

We based our decision to resume the Colloquium on providing a safe learning environment. We have done this by offering 2 platforms of learning:

  • Face-to-face attendance, or

  • Online attendance

We are keeping a close watch on the situation. If we can no longer host the event, all delegates will be transferred to our online platform.

Check in to the Interprofessional Colloquium

 

The QT Hotel has a compulsory CBR QR Code. You will need to download the CBR App and check in upon arrival.

Until that eventuality, we appreciate that people are keen to meet in person. We are pleased to provide these COVID-19 safety measures to demonstrate our commitment to your safety.

Physical/Social Distancing

The current government advice is that everyone must keep at least 1.5 meters from others, where possible. There must be 4 square meters of space per person where possible.

 

QT Hotel will:

  • promote and enforce the government guidance – they will remind delegates, contractors and staff of the government requirements that people maintain physical distancing from others

  • comply with ACT mandated occupancy limits

  • when touching communal surfaces.
