Events at Orange

With My Vaccine Pass

If an event organiser chooses to follow My Vaccine Pass requirements, only people with a My Vaccine Pass are allowed to be there. Children under the age of 12 years and 3 months do not need to provide a My Vaccine Pass to enter places with a vaccination requirement.

There is no limit to the number of people who can attend.

Without My Vaccine Pass

Events cannot go ahead if My Vaccine Pass requirements are not followed.

Face masks help reduce the spread of COVID-19.

At Orange you must wear a face mask in retail outlets and on public transport. We strongly encourage you wear a face mask everywhere else.

Keep up healthy habits to protect us

Even though we are a highly vaccinated country, COVID-19 can still spread in our communities. Slow the spread of the virus by keeping up healthy habits.
