QLD Government Double Vaccinations

As per the current Queensland Government COVID-19 vaccination regulations, from 17 December 2021 all judges, show personnel, exhibitors or attendees and public must have had at least two COVID vaccinations to enter a FCCQ show venue. On show day everyone must check in using the QLD QR code and show this to the person/s on the door, your wrist will then be stamped, this must be shown if you wish to re-enter the venue. No rude or abusive behaviour towards our volunteers will be sanctioned, should this occur, the person will be asked to leave. Our volunteers are simply following the Qld requirements which are not set by FCCQ.
