BUMS Inc has developed a set of COVID-safe guidelines for any gathering of people and these guidelines determine how the jams will operate now . We need your cooperation to ensure our jams are COVID-safe events.
The health and safety measures that apply to our jams:
- There is a limit on the number of people at a jam.
- You must have a ticket to attend; available through Trybooking.
- We keep a register of each ticket holder for contact tracing.
- We manage a defined venue or space according to BUMS COVID-safe guidelines.
- You must be seated in the jam and maintain social distancing of 1.5m apart.
- We control the flow of people moving in and out of the venue.
Each of our venues may require slightly different ways of achieving these measures, which will be outlined in the terms and conditions on the ticket.
