Service NSW check-in mandatory for takeaway sales from 12 July
The NSW Government has announced that the Service NSW check-in will become mandatory at all workplaces and retail businesses, including for takeaway food and beverage sales, state-wide from 12 July 2021.
This means that clubs that provide takeaway food or beverages must ensure customers check in using Service NSW from 12 July.
For the avoidance of doubt, the Public Health Order requires masks to be worn in all indoor areas of all non-residential premises. For clubs outside ‘Greater Sydney’, this means that patrons must wear masks in all indoor areas of the club, including food and drink areas. Patrons may remove their mask while eating and drinking.
All employees, including back-of-house employees such as cooks, must also wear masks.
While these requirements apply to indoor areas, customer-facing staff must also wear masks in outdoor areas.
Back-of-house employees are not required to wear a mask if they are working alone while in an office.
