Precautionary Measures

CPA Australia has established a committee to monitor the global situation and make decisions based on the advice of the relevant government and health authorities in each region. The safety and wellbeing of members and staff is our priority.

Where events are proceeding, measures will be in place to protect the health and wellbeing of delegates and prevent further spread of the outbreak, including:

  • Health and travel declaration: members and guests attending the event must complete a Health and travel declaration form. You may review the terms and conditions in advance and bring the completed form with you. This form will also be available at the event registration desk.

  • Temperature station: all event delegates must consent to having their temperature taken before checking in to the event.

  • Hand sanitisers: increased number of hand sanitising stations will be placed at the event registration area.

We encourage all members and delegates to practice good hygiene, and if you are feeling unwell to please refrain from attending events. Contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
