The Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) has issued a statement on very high-risk environments, including nightclubs, dance venues and large unstructured outdoor events. For more information please refer to the AHPPC website

This page includes resources for workplaces in the live entertainment industry on work health and safety, workers’ compensation and COVID-19.

The live entertainment industry is a service industry and involves workers (including performers, technicians and hospitality staff) and others (such as audiences and patrons). This guidance is aimed at live performances including performances by musicians, dancers, theatre performers, comedians, speakers and DJs. These may include venues such as:

  • theatres
  • amphitheatres and outdoor venues
  • pubs, taverns and bars
  • restaurants
  • clubs
  • concert halls and dedicated music venues
  • events, including weddings.

We have also published information for hospitality, cultural institutions and cinemas
