Regulations of the Queensland Agricultural Show and Showgrounds Industry COVIDSafe Plan state that Cookery Section entries must be delivered in a sealed container or bag. Entries not in a sealed container or bag will not be accepted. The only person to break the seal must be the judge, for that class, to sample the entry for judging purposes. Only one judge is permitted per class. The show will reconfigure judging in the Cookery Section to allow distancing and to permit the removal of a face mask by a judge in order to sample entries. Once sampled by the judge the entry may be handed to the stewards for display. Any cutlery or utensils used in the judging process must be cleaned or replaced after every class. Cleaning of cutlery and utensils must be to the cleaning requirements specific to the food industry (for example, under the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code). At the conclusion of the Show all cookery entries must be discarded by the Stewards and disposed of in the rubbish.
