COVID-19

Sydney Seafood School is committed to providing customers with the safest possible environment and facility. Sydney Seafood School patrons agree to always adhere to the following COVID-19 directives whist within our facility. 

  • It is a condition of entry that all patrons comply with Sydney Seafood School’s COVID Safe Management Plan. A copy of this plan is available upon request. 
  • All patrons must sign in via the Service NSW App QR code provided. Manual sign in capabilities will not be available for patrons who do not have access to a compatible digital device; therefore, it is the patron’s responsibility to ensure that someone in their booking group can sign in each visitor via the Service NSW App. 
  • Whilst within the Sydney Seafood School facility, patrons must follow the directions of staff with regard to social distancing and COVID-safe practices.
  • Sydney Seafood School encourages patrons to wash their hands prior to entry. All patrons will also be asked to sanitise their hands upon entry, and to ensure that high standards of hand hygiene are maintained throughout patrons’ time in Sydney Seafood School’s facilities. 
  • Patrons may be asked health screening questions on arrival to the venue and may be temperature checked.
  • Patrons who are unwell, or who have a high temperature, will not be able to attend the event, and a credit note (valid for 6 months) will be provided.
  • Sydney Seafood School complies with all directives given by the NSW Government and NSW Health. Thus, any additional restrictions imposed between the time of booking and the beginning of a class will automatically become a condition of entry. 
  • Patrons who do not comply with COVID-safe protocol will be asked to leave the Sydney Seafood School premises immediately. In this case, no refund or credit note will be provided.
  • A credit note (valid 12 months) will be provided to any customer who has developed COVID-19 symptoms, or who has been identified as a close or casual contact with a confirmed case prior to attending the class. 
  • Patrons acknowledge that while the Sydney Seafood School has taken all reasonable health and safety precautions to keep the facility safe, patrons enter the facility at their own risk without recourse to claim against the Sydney Fish Market Pty Ltd regarding health outcomes.
