Member clubs are advised that the NSW Government has released an updated COVID-19 safety checklist for clubs and pubs. The updated checklist comes into effect today, 29 January 2021. As member clubs are aware, venues must use the most up-to-date checklist.
The updated checklist reflects the changes foreshadowed in Circular 21-016. Under these changes, clubs in Greater Sydney, Wollongong and the Central Coast no longer have a maximum capacity limit of 300 per venue or separate area.
Capacity is now determined in accordance with 1 person per 4 square metres.
The maximum capacity of weddings and wakes has also been increased to 300 patrons.
Clubs are obligated to have a COVID-19 safety plan which addresses the matters in the most up-to-date checklist.
For more information or any questions, please contact the ClubsNSW Members Enquiries Centre.
