Our Club continues to maintain its policy of complying with all requirements to ensure that you, our members & guests, can enjoy our great facilities confident that we are doing all we can to provide a COVID-safe environment.

As a condition of entry, members, guests & visitors will be required to sign in via our QR code/electronic method. Our friendly staff will always assist anyone who is unsure of this process. Non-Members will also continue to fill in a visitors slip.

The Club’s opening time is: 11am / 7 days per week

The Club’s operating hours may be subject to change based on any restrictions that might occur in the future as a result of the COVID pandemic. Should this occur, we will advise our members accordingly.

Physical distancing

We will take all reasonable steps to ensure patrons and employees comply with Safe Work Australia’s ‘physical distancing’ standards applying to hospitality venues including floor markings and Physical Distancing.

We will ensure that patrons do not stand around bar areas, walkways or in groups as you must be seated unless you are moving to another part of the venue.
We will prominently display any mandated CovidSafe signage that has been issued by relevant Government authorities.


Groups of up to 20 people can sit together as long as physical distancing measures are adhered to.

Patrons are to be seated unless ordering drinks or food, using the facilities or going to another part of the venue. Standing groups are not permitted.

Our Club needs to ensure that there is 1.5 metres between different Groups of customers.


On top of our normal cleaning regime, staff will be regularly cleaning areas and surfaces that are frequently touched, observing Safe Work Australia’s ‘cleaning’ standards applying to hospitality venues.


We encourage patrons to adopt Safe Work Australia’s ‘hygiene’ standards applying to hospitality venues. While onsite at the Club, employees, members, guests and visitors are encouraged to practise good personal hygiene.

Alcohol-based sanitiser will be made available at Club entry and exit points, as well as other locations throughout the venue. We ask patrons to clean their hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based hand rub.

We will encourage employees to clean their hands every 30 minutes whilst employees will be discouraged from engaging in personal contact, such as the shaking of hands with fellow staff, members, guests and visitors. Please do not take this in any other way than as a preventative and control measure to help prevent the spread of viruses.

The Club and its catering contractors have also implemented several measures in our dining facilities including:

Removal of cutlery from all tables. Cutlery will be delivered with your meals.
Increased sanitation of all work and public spaces.
Additional staff training and Increased use of gloves.
Removal of ‘help yourself’ sauce and cutlery stations.


We will be taking additional measures to clean and promote hygiene in our restrooms.
We will clean frequently touched surfaces more regularly and display signs demonstrating recommended hand washing methods.

Patron Screening

If we reasonably believe a person on our premises has a COVID-19 symptom (defined below), we must: ask the person to remove themselves from the premises and notify the person that they should be tested for COVID-19 at the nearest testing location

The COVID-19 symptoms are:

    • cough;

    • fever;

    • fatigue;

    • sore throat;

    • shortness of breath

NSW Health has also offered the following advice for patrons:

Stay home and do not attend if you are feeling unwell.
Stay home and do not attend if you have travelled overseas in the past 14 days.

The Club will record the names of all patrons entering the premises and we ask patrons for their co-operation.

General Compliance

We have taken measures to ensure employees understand and comply with the Clubs work, health, and safety duties.
We will be displaying COVID-19-related signage by the Australian and NSW Governments throughout the venue.

As a community-based organisation, we are continuing to take advice on COVID–19 (Coronavirus) seriously, and as a result we have implemented the measures outlined above to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our employees, members, guests and visitors.

Our primary concern is:

To protect people, ensure our obligations under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (NSW) and maintain our duty of care to our employees, and to persons on, or seeking to visit our premises.

The Club will continue to monitor advice from the NSW Government or Australian Government and implement changes as we are advised accordingly.

The Club requests your cooperation and understanding as we continue in our commitment to offer a safe place of relaxation and enjoyment for our Members and Guests. Persons who fail to cooperate with our requests in relation to COVID-19 however, will be asked to leave the premises.

If you have any questions, please liaise with our management team.

The Dorrigo Memorial RSL Board, Management and Staff thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you to our Club.
