Announcement: Wednesday 13th January 2020
We are an official ‘COVID-safe’ venue and are still operating under strict guidelines from the NSW Government.
Safety – Please stay home if you’re feeling at all unwell. The safety of our community is our first priority. Upon entry to the RSL, you will be asked various standard questions. If you are showing any signs of illness you may be refused entry or requested to leave. If this is the case we ask that you only return once you have medical clearance. If you have returned from international travel within the past 14 days, or have been in contact with any confirmed COVID-19 cases, we ask that you self quarantine for 14 days before entering Glenorie RSL. As with normal life, please keep a safe social distance of 1.5m from anyone who does not live within your immediate household.
COVID Marshal – We have dedicated COVID-19 Marshals who can be identified by their orange Fluro vests.
Members – We have reviewed our members-only rule, if you live within 5km of the club you will need to become a member, as is required by law under the Registered Clubs Act 1976, Section 30(10). Otherwise, we are letting visitors back into the RSL Club by signing into our sign in terminals. You can renew memberships or join on entry to the RSL. One year membership is $5.50.
Visitor Arrival – Patrons will enter Glenorie RSL through the main entrance only. Employees will be located at the front of the venue to welcome patrons and run through our procedures. Patrons are asked to use hand sanitiser on arrival. All patrons will be required to sign in using the Service NSW QR code so that in the event of contact tracing is required, the information will be quickly and readily available.
Cleaning – We have implemented additional cleaning measures to ensure a high level of cleaning and sanitizing. We are doing this to ensure the safety of you and our staff. As such sometimes, this may make waiting times a little bit longer and we thank you in advance for understanding.
Service – Patrons are allowed to order drinks from bar and there are floor patches of safe areas to stand. Additionally, we have implemented a new table ordering procedures for our bistro to minimise lines.
Gaming – Masks must be worn by customers in the gaming machine rooms. Masks are available at the bar and front desk. We have re-configured our gaming room to ensure a safe social distance between each machine. We now, where practical, only accommodate the suggested spacing. The Tab room is now a part of the indoor gaming room. You must sit at the designated chairs whilst playing (no standing) and can not sit at a machine, next to somebody else unless you are from the same household.
TAB – The TAB is now located at the end of the lounge
Smoking – The smoking balcony is open, although there is a limit. You may sit out here, but please be considerate. If the area is full and someone walks out to have a smoke. Someone will need to leave the balcony to allow for that. The Outdoor gaming room will remain a smoking area, however, you are only allowed in there if you are using a gaming machine. You may smoke in the Backyard at a point on the fence near the driveway, there is an ashtray attached where you are allowed.
The Backyard – The Backyard is now fully open! Although standing and dancing were extremely short-lived, we are back to having to remain seated and no dancing in the entire venue.
Playground – The playground and grassed areas are open. No food or drink is to be consumed on or around the playground for hygiene purposes. Parents must remain seated whilst supervising their children.
Dining and The Burrow Bookings – As all other rooms within the club we have a strict 4sqm capacity limit in these areas. We recommend booking ahead of time to guarantee a table. We ask that you please remain seated, unless using the bar or restrooms.
Specials – We are running three $12 lunch specials options, available Mon-Friday. We are also bringing back $12 Chicken Schnitzels on Monday Nights. Our usual specials will be back eventually, until then, we thank you for your understanding.
Regular promotions – Introducing a new meat raffle for Friday Nights! All normal weekly promotions such as Badge Draw and normal Raffles have been put on hold until further notice in accordance with regulations.
Special Promotions and Events – Information on our special yearly events and promotions such as Father’s Day, Halloween etc. will be released as restrictions are eased and regulations update, all whilst still keeping patron safety at the top of our priority list.
Live Entertainment – We host ‘Backyard Sessions’ which is live acoustic music over dinnertime on Friday Night and lunchtime Sunday’s. At this point we are allowed solo and duo performers.
