Delegate cancellation – Medical
The health and safety of conference attendees is our highest priority. AACBT is mindful of the health risks posed by COVID-19, and the importance of following official medical advice with respect to social distancing, practicing good hygiene and staying at home when unwell. AACBT requests that any delegate who is feeling unwell or has cold or flu like symptoms, or who may have been in contact with someone with COVID-19, to not attend the conference.
If, on medical grounds, you are unable to attend the conference, you must cancel your attendance in writing by email to email@example.com. A full refund will be provided, however you may be asked to provide additional details.
AACBT is monitoring the latest health advice from both the Department of Health (Australia) and the Government of New South Wales, and we ask that all delegates do the same. If we are required to make any changes or cancellations to our conference due to Government restrictions in relation to COVID-19, delegates will be notified by email and will be provided a full refund of their registration fee.
