COvid safe volunteers

updated 1st February 2021

The Elwood Community Market takes its responsibility seriously to keep the community COVID Safe. 

If you are feeling unwell with COVID like symptoms on the day of the market please cancel your shift and stay home.

Disposable masks will be available for volunteers if required. 

All volunteers must understand and comply with COVID Safe Work practices and behaviours which will be outlined on signs in each work area.

Six principles of COVIDSafe workplaces
Ensure physical distancing
Wear a face mask
Practise good hygiene
  • clean and disinfect  high touch surfaces

  • Make soap and hand sanitiser available for all workers and customers throughout the worksite and encourage regular handwashing.


Keep records and act quickly
  • Support workers to get tested and stay home even if they only have mild symptoms

  • Keep records of all people who enter the event for contact tracing.


Avoid interactions in enclosed spaces 
  • Move as much activity outside as possible

  • Enhance airflow by opening windows and doors.


Create workforce bubbles
  • Keep groups of workers rostered on the same shifts at a single worksite and ensure there is no overlap of workers during shift changes.
