SYDNEY FISH MARKET 36-HOUR CHRISTMAS MARATHON - EXTENDED COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES
21 December, 2020
In response to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in Sydney, Sydney Fish Market has extended COVID-safe protocols from Tuesday 22nd December, 24 hours ahead of the annual 36 Hour Seafood Marathon.
The safety of all customers and staff is paramount throughout this period. As the situation evolves, Sydney Fish Market continues to work closely with NSW Police and NSW Health to implement and adapt an extensive COVID-safe event management plan.
NSW Police will also be present on site throughout the Christmas period, to ensure compliance with guidelines provided by NSW Health.
As of 8am tomorrow, Tuesday 22nd December, the main Sydney Fish Market car park will be closed to the general public (aside from disabled parking). Alternative car parking will be available nearby at Sydney Secondary College and the Fig and Wattle council site.
There will be a single point of entry to the site, allowing management of registration (via QR code) and temperature testing, as well as socially distanced queuing (each visitor/group must remain 1.5m apart).
In line with recommendations from NSW Health, the wearing of face masks for all customers during their visit is strongly encouraged.
Sydney Fish Market also asks that visitors limit their group size and remain socially distanced at all times.
Additional measures include:
a. Close crowd management of foot and vehicle traffic around the site
b. Closely monitored compliance of social distancing guidelines onsite and in-store at each retailer.
c. Increased cleaning of high-traffic areas and hand sanitisation points at regular intervals throughout the site
