COVID 19 & Social Distancing
Small gatherings are back and so is SUPERHEROES INC, and ARMY & SPY PARTIES!! But not without taking extra special care of you, your children and guests, and our entertainers! Your health and safety is our top priority, so we’ve made some changes that allow us to still have FUN but in a safe way!!
We will be running our events according to these guidelines (which may be subject to change at any time without notice), so please feel free to check in again for any changes.
* According to these agencies, up to 20 guests are allowed in NSW households.
* Up to 30 people (as of Oct 23rd) will also be allowed to gather in groups outside.
NOTE: Entertainers DO NOT count as guests, and DO NOT need to be factored into your numbers.
We have adopted safe hygiene practices in line with government directives and so will be encouraging all participants do the same.
How our new social distancing parties will work:
- We are working within the set guidelines for group sizes as prescribed by these Govt. agencies
- As well as our standard party durations, we are now offering shorter entertainment packages (location dependent).
- We will practice social distancing
- We have designed the games and activities to be no contact
- No handshakes, hi 5’s or hugs
- No face painting or temporary tattoos
- As always, we will work with you to design a party format that you are comfortable with and that the birthday boy/girl will enjoy!
- Any specific requests that you have can be managed
- Full payment is required within 24 hours of booking your party (no cash accepted on the day)
What our entertainers will be doing during this time:
It is important that our staff and entertainers follow all government and health authority guidelines, but it doesn’t mean we can’t have fun. Like always, we will work with you to tailor the entertainment to not only meet these guidelines but to also be a party that your little one will love! We will:
- Practice social distancing
- Launder all costumes after EACH party
- Sanitize equipment after each party
- Regular hand washing, especially before entering the party
- Help teach the children how to be safe during this time
- No handshakes, hi 5’s or hugs
- No face painting or temporary tattoos
- Discuss the party format, location/venue, guest numbers with you prior to the party (with the office team and during the pre-party call with your entertainer)
- Our entertainers will check in with you throughout the party to ensure you are happy with everything
- Update our guidelines regularly according to Government and Health Authority directives
- Inform and train our staff of our policy and any new procedures
- Ensure our policies and procedures are followed by all staff and our entertainers
What YOU can do to help follow these guidelines too:
- Make sure that your event adheres with COVID-19 measures applicable to the time and date of the event. You can view the guidelines from NSW Health here: Outdoor public gatherings or Visiting friends and family at home.
- Ensure you are not exceeding the maximum number of attendees
- We recommend discussing how the party will run, with children prior to our arrival: practicing social distancing, no contact games, no hi 5’s and hugs etc.
- Help teach children to social distance by leading by example
- Discuss your concerns, ask any questions and ensure you’re happy with the plan for the party with our office team and your entertainer prior to the party
- Check in with the entertainer during the party if you have any concerns
- Inform us as soon as possible if any guests are unwell or have tested positive to COVID 19
- Is a ‘Drop off’ suitable for your event?
- Perhaps consider cupcakes instead of one large cake (or dummy cake for blowing out candles and a kitchen cake to serve)
- Please settle your account in full with 48 hours after booking your party
What happens if there is another ‘Lockdown’?
While we have lots of superpowers, we don’t have the ability to read
minds or go back in time.
So now more than ever, we ask that you get in touch with your concerns & questions, to ensure that we can give you a safe and fun-filled event!
