Cupo and Concept Venue would like to reassure our clients that we are monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) closely. 

Our heart is sinking as we understand that the full impact of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) on businesses and the economy is yet to be determined. News on COVID-19 is constantly evolving and we are staying abreast of the latest updates from the Australian Government. 

Following the Australian Federal Government’s most recent announcement (Friday 20th March 2020), we have discussed our plans carefully. 

Cupo and Concept Venue are abiding with the following guidelines:

  • Availability of hand hygiene products and suitable waste receptacles, with frequent cleaning and waste disposal.
  • Promotion of the Department of Health recommendations for unwell individuals to isolate at home and not attend.
  • For settings where there is ongoing movement and an increased number of interactions between individuals, an individual’s attendance should be less than two hours duration.

Should circumstances change, we will communicate with those directly affected and offer an open book policy for any rescheduling and postponing events. 

A preparedness plan is in place at our venues to ensure we are taking COVID-19 seriously.
