Further Information On Easing Of Restrictions On Clubs
Following Circular 20-072 (NSW Government to Ease Restrictions on Clubs), ClubsNSW has continued to engage closely with the NSW Government to confirm the conditions which will apply to clubs and the hospitality sector from 1 June 2020. The information has been confirmed by NSW Health and the Chief Health Officer following ClubsNSW’ engagement.
Member clubs are advised that further change is still possible and subject to parliamentary drafting. ClubsNSW will provide updates to member clubs via additional circulars as necessary.
Clubs will see that appropriate venue safety, rather than how small the venue is, has now become the measure adopted by government for venue re-opening conditions. ClubsNSW is pleased that our strategy to engage an infectious diseases expert to review and approve our industry re-opening plan, at some cost, has proven effective in allowing clubs to re-open safely, much sooner. In order to have more than ten (10) patrons, all licensed venues in NSW will be required to adhere to the requirements detailed in circular 20-075.
For more information or any questions, please contact the ClubsNSW Members Enquiries Centre.
