Dear Members,

We are pleased to welcome back our members and guests and advise that from 11am, Tuesday 9 June 2020, Club Marconi will re-open under strict restrictions in relation to capacity and entry requirements.

The recent Government announcement to ease restrictions on Clubs by allowing them to re-open, has given us extremely limited time to prepare. Our priority is the health and wellbeing of our members, guests, staff and suppliers and to ensure the Club is compliant with the NSW Health Orders and ensure a COVID- Safe environment, entry to our Club will be regulated with a mandated entry assessment.

This assessment and conditions of entry for all members, guests, staff and contractors will be:
Conditions include but are not limited to:

  • Members and guests will be required to sign in and out of the Club
  • Members and Guests to provide their mobile numbers and email addresses
  • Temperature checks on members and guests who enters our club (including staff and contractors)
  • Restrictions on the number of members and guests permitted in identified areas of the Club
  • Physical distancing of 1.5m through-out the Club
  • Members and guests must adhere to physical distancing rules and floor markings
  • Members and guests must adhere to signage and Club staff instructions
  • Members and guests must not loiter or stand around other members and guests
  • Members and guests must be seated to consume alcohol
  • Members and guests must limit group seating to no more than 10 people
  • Members and Guests must not partake in recreational activities or games
  • Members and Guests must not partake in social gatherings
  • Raffles, bingo, mah-jong, member’s draws and cards are not permitted
  • COVIDsafe Marshalls will be employed to ensure social distancing compliance, limiting co-mingling, loitering and promoting good personal hygiene
  • Additional cleaning and sanitation procedures will be in operation

The Heath Orders of the NSW Government have identified the conditions that the Club must comply and permitted to trade under and we can assure you we will be working hard to exceed these expectations by implementing procedures to ensure the health and safety of all members and guests as a priority.

All staff have undertaken WHS and Covid-19+ Risk Minimisation Training prior to the re-opening and the Club has undergone a viral sanitation clean.

The Club in the interim will open at 11am each day.

The Board, Management and Staff will ensure complete compliance and not compromise the Club, members, guests and staff. Your co-operation and understanding is appreciated and we apologise in advance should the mandatory restrictions not allow you to enter the Club.

Finally, we encourage all our Members to download the Government’s COVIDSafe app to continue to keep, not only our most vulnerable members but the whole community safe.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Management and Staff we are thinking of and support you all to follow the physical distancing guidelines and keep safe.

Look forward to welcoming you back from next Tuesday.
