COVID Safe Plan for Australia Day Events

Anyone attending either the St Arnaud or Stawell Australia Day Events will be required to sign in by QR Code or written contact details. There will be a COVID Marshall available to help with check-ins. Wearing face masks outdoors is not mandatory, but is strongly recommended if you are unable to adhere to density rules.
These arrangements could change at a moment's notice, due to COVID regulations.

For any community members unable to attend the Australia Day events, both the St Arnaud and Stawell events will be live streamed via the Northern Grampians Shire Facebook page.
