Being COVID safe at QYMA

The Queensland Youth Music Awards is being run under the approved industry plan for Stage Queensland and under Category 3 events - indoor under 500 people.   Here is a copy of our COVID safe event checklist.  

For all QYMA nights - everyone has a responsibility to be COVID safe and adhere to the 'new normal':

  • Stay home when sick and get tested & inform QYMA manager so tickets can be refunded
  • For audience maintain physical distancing (1.5m) when entering and exiting the venue + wear a mask when distancing is not possible.  For schools, they are to remain in their ‘school bubble’ and maintain social distancing with other schools and audience.   
  • Maintain good hand hygiene – high touch points at QYMA events will be regularly cleaned
  • Ensure that you provide accurate contact details when requested to allow for effective contact tracing
  • Flexibility in knowing that we all need to rapidly respond to outbreaks so understanding if QYMA nights need to be adjusted / cancelled
  • Comply with any travel restrictions from hot spots and ensure that if you have been to a hot spot that you should not attend a QYMA night. 


Also, all performers will be 4m distance from the audience during their performance.  Participants must follow the direction of QYMA and venue staff to avoid congestion and crowding.  Difficult or aggressive behaviours will not be tolerated - when in doubt BE KIND.
