Fitness Facilities or for an adult entertainment performance as defined in the Adult. Entertainment Checklist in this plan, Following the published Queensland Chief Health Officers Public Health Directions These. may change over time and may vary the conditions established in this plan. INTERACTION BETWEEN APPROVED INDUSTRY COVID SAFE PLANS. If there are multiple activities being undertaken at your venue for example dining sports fitness. or recreational several approved industry plans may apply If this is the case apply the following. Where there is clear separation between the activities e g dining and sport the relevant. plan applies to the relevant area You will need to display the COVID Safe Statement of. Compliance for the appropriate plan in each area, This plan complements the relevant sporting plan that applies to outdoor sports such as golf. or bowls The sporting activity itself is covered by the Outdoor Sports Industry plan while. this plan addresses clubhouses and the food and drink services operating within the. clubhouse and associated outdoor areas, Where the activities cross over for example amenities entry exits carparks. o Where possible these areas of cross over need to be minimised Such as designating. a particular entry exit amenities and carpark for each activity. o Where the cross over cannot be minimised a decision needs to be made as to which. plan takes priority in which common area and will be followed. For instance the entry exit carpark and amenities may be common to both. activities and will be managed under the dinning plan. In this case the entity responsible for the dining plan will need to ensure. these areas are appropriately managed and the separate groups from the. dining and sport activity do not intermingle, Where a business is operating alongside of a not for profit community group the business would. normally take responsibility for managing the shared or common areas. The approved Industry plans are located at www COVID19 qld gov au. CHECKLISTS, Venues are to utilise checklists to evaluate each area for the known risks and proposed methods of.
