Currently, in Australia, the Department of Health advice does state the COVID-19 has a low population vs virus rate and that events are safe to proceed with the following preventative measures:

  • Wash hands regularly and provide guests hand sanitiser
  • Ask guests who could potentially be affected or been in contact with people who have been to China, Iran or Italy to respectfully stay home
  • Discourage handshaking and hugs/kisses from your guests (Although not an official recommendation from the DOH, we suggest that Lots of air-kissing may be a good alternative)
  • If you are serving canapés, try and get them served on plates rather than guest all touching the same platter of serving utensils.
