19 Mar NOTICE TO CLUB MEMBERS
An important update for members, guests and visitors.
As a community-based organisation, we are taking advice on COVID–19 (Coronavirus) seriously, and as a result have implemented the following measures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff, members, guests and visitors. Our primary concern will be to protect people, ensure our obligations under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (NSW) and maintain our duty of care to our staff, and to persons on, or seeking to visit our premises.
All persons who have returned from overseas from midnight Monday 16 March 2020, or been in contact with people who have returned from overseas travel are required by law to self-isolate for a period of 14 days and
as a result will not be permitted to enter the Club premises.
All persons whose place of employment, education or socialisation that has been closed due to a confirmed case of COVID-19 are not to enter the Club.
All persons who experience or show signs of flu like symptoms are not to enter the Club. These symptoms may include fever, cough, sore throat, tiredness and shortness of breath.
Persons who are onsite and showing flu like symptoms will be asked to leave the premises.

The Club has increased signage within the venue to inform staff, members, guests and visitors of good hygiene practices.
The Club’s staff will be discouraged from engaging in personal contact, such as the shaking of hands with fellow staff, members, guests and visitors. Please do not take this in any other way than as a preventative and control measure to help prevent the spread of viruses.
The Club is also instituting frequent sanitisation of “high touch areas” including bathrooms, door handles and buttons.
The Club will continue to monitor the advice of ClubsNSW and implement advice accordingly.
Events, Entertainment and Functions
The COVID-19 situation continues to evolve rapidly. Following advice from the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) on 13 March 2020 and announcements made today by the Prime Minister, new
measures to control transmission of COVID-19 will have a direct effect on Clubs.
The new measures include a ban on all indoor, non-essential gatherings of more than 100 persons. There will also be a ban on non-essential outdoor gatherings of more than 500 persons.
This includes events such as concerts, sporting fixtures with large crowds, exhibitions and religious celebrations.
