From Saturday 5 February 2022, the following will apply:
Category 1: 500 to 1,000 patrons, requiring a COVID Event Checklist only.
Category 2: more than 1,000 patrons, requiring a COVID Event Plan and compliance with proof of vaccination requirement
Proof of Vaccination Requirement
From Saturday 5 February 2022, a proof of vaccination requirement will be introduced for those events with more than 1,000 patrons. This is an important public health measure that will help to reduce transmission of COVID-19 at events, should one or more attendees be infectious with COVID-19.
The 50th Wagin Woolorama and Blights Haulage Woolorama Rodeo fall under Category 2 (over 1000 patrons) of the State Government's requirements which means that all attendees will be required to provide proof of vaccination to attend on the 11th and 12th March 2022.
