What to do if you feel unwell at the event

If you feel unwell at all, stay in your hotel room, do not attend the event activities. Contact one of the WHS event staff privately, immediately through the messenger app on the Facebook event page or us. WHS Staff will be happy to help get you medicines, further medical advice or attention if necessary.
Room sharing – If one person in a room feels unwell, then all room mates should also begin isolation.

Fixed or Mixed partners

Be mindful that not everyone is ready to mix with others as freely as some.
Now more than ever, do not be afraid to say ‘no’, or feel awkward about someone saying ‘no’ to you. Just try to be understanding, as none of us know anyone else’s story.

Covid 19 Refunds
If you fall ill due to Covid 19 in the lead up, or at the event itself, we’ll be glad to refund you your event ticket cost.
