Residents from Victoria hotspots
Member clubs are advised that, from midnight tonight, it will be an offence for residents living in suburbs of Victoria identified as “COVID-19 hotspots” to enter NSW.
The Public Health Order giving effect to this is yet to be released.
The suburbs and postcodes of the hotspots can be found here.
The Victorian situation continues to change, and the list of hotspots may increase. ClubsNSW will communicate further changes as necessary.
Earlier today, the NSW Minister for Health, Brad Hazzard, announced that Victorians living in the hotspots who fail to comply with the rules could face up to six months in prison.
A copy of the Minister’s media release can be found here.
Today’s announcement follows comments by the NSW Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, assuring businesses that they may refuse entry to any person living in parts of Victoria.
“If you are a business in NSW … you also have the right to ensure that anyone coming from a hotspot is not welcome on your premises,” the Premier said.
Ongoing compliance with the restrictions
In a press conference earlier today, Minister Hazzard discussed the conduct of restaurants and cafes regarding CovidSAFE standards.
He said: “To the proprietors, particularly of smaller cafes and restaurants, it has been reported to me … some of the proprietors haven’t quite learnt all the needs of keeping us all safe … I really ask the proprietors of restaurants and cafes to step up their game.”
Member clubs are strongly encouraged to maintain vigilance and compliance with COVID-19 restrictions.
For any queries, please refer to circular 20-106 or contact the Member Enquiries Centre on 1300 730 001.

Further Information on the Public Healthy Order to Apply From Today
Member clubs are advised that the Public Health (COVID-19 Restrictions on Gathering and Movement) Order (No 4) 2020 (the Public Health Order) was made yesterday evening, with the laws applying from today. The Public Health Order can be found here.
The Public Health Order requires clubs to develop and comply with a COVID-19 Safety Plan that addresses the matters in the approved checklist, which can be found here. The current checklist includes amendments to the previous checklist which applied from 1 June 2020.
Like previous public health orders, the rules in the latest Order are temporary, and ClubsNSW anticipates that restrictions will continue to be eased as venues demonstrate their ability to operate safely.
Member clubs are advised that the Public Health Order and approved checklist provide additional information on key issues. For More information, ready Circular 20-106.
