Registered clubs re-open to limited numbers of patrons
Registered clubs on the Peninsula have reopened to limited numbers of patrons, since restrictions were eased at the start of June, having been closed since March.
Patrons will be subject to temperature checks, and a number of other requirements may apply.
At Ettalong Diggers, members and guests will be required to sign in and out with their name and contact details, with a required temperature test upon entry.
The Club will open at midday daily, with different sections of the Club, including the bistro, cafe and gaming rooms, having different opening hours on different days of the week.
The Club is enforcing a numbers limit of 311, based on the number of dining areas in the Club.
Chief executive Mr Bill Jackson said that his priority was following the State Government's guidelines to ensure the health and safety of all patrons.
At Everglades Country Club, only members will be granted entry.
However, "if you are not currently a member, you can join for $5," said general manager Mr Ross Seabrook.
All members must sign in and sign out, providing a contact number.
"We will keep this for 28 days in order to contact you should an outbreak occur in the area."
All members will be subjected to a temperature check, and any patrons with a temperature of 37.5 degrees or higher will be refused entry.
All members must remain seated unless ordering food, beverages or travelling between areas.
All patrons must keep 1.5m distance between themselves and others, unless they are from the same household.
The venue's capacity is 130 patrons.
Patrons have been asked to listen to and follow instructions from staff, which may include being asked to be seated or move to another area.
At Ettalong Bowling Club, both the Alfresco Brasserie and Harry's Chinese Restaurant have recommenced their normal lunch and dinner dining times.
Patrons are recommended to phone ahead to make a booking.
"We at Ettalong Bowling Club have developed a Covid-safe reopening plan with procedures and compliance levels required by the Government, NSW Health Department and Regulatory Authorities," said chief executive Mr Tim McGavin.
"You can be assured of your safety and health while you're using the club's facilities."
Entry and exit access will be through the main reception and all members and visitors will be required to sign into a Covid -19 register and have their temperature checked upon entry into the club.
All other entry and exits will be closed until further notice.
Social distancing and good personal hygiene will be expected at all times throughout the club.
Signs have been placed around the club and hand sanitiser has been placed on all service areas.
"If you are unwell or are experiencing flu-like symptoms, such as a cough, fever or fatigue please do not enter the club and stay home," said Mr McGavin.
"We did not get a lot of notice to reopen our club but management and staff have been working behind the scenes to ensure that all our members and guests have a great experience and feel safe when visiting the club."
