The well-being of our members and staff remains at the forefront of our minds and we have taken on all advice issued by the Australian and NSW Government. There will be a number of operational measures that we will now undertake.
Central has introduced a range of procedures to ensure the highest cleaning standards throughout our venue to reduce the spread of Covid-19, which includes an increase in cleaning frequency, additional staff where required and use of only approved and recommended sanitising and cleaning products.
We have identified a number of high touch points throughout the club, including back of house, and have developed a system to ensure that these are properly sanitised at regular intervals. We would like our members to be assured that the same processes that are employed throughout the club, are being used in the kitchen and cellar.
All our team have completed up to date COVID-19 safe practice training including how the cleaning is always to be conducted and practising safe personal hygiene and adhering to social distancing.
Please see our COVID Marshall on site if you have any cleaning or customer service requirements – they will be identifiable by the bright yellow hi-vis vests.
Conditions of Entry
We are required by the state government to record the names and contact details of all patrons, contractors, and staff members. To ensure we capture everyone correctly, we will ask our members to swipe their card at the members terminal upon arrival. Sign-in books will be kept at Reception in order for guests to complete with their phone numbers or email addresses, as per recommendations from NSW Government.
Safe Hygiene Practices
Central encourages all our patrons to remain focused on hygienic practices by washing hands, sanitising regularly, and taking advantage of the various sanitisation stations and cleaners in the club. Any patrons who display symptoms in line with Covid-19 will be denied entry. Regular announcements will be made reminding patrons to practice safe hygiene.
All staff will be required to complete a wellness check including having their temperature checked at the start of each shift. The contactless thermometer can be found at reception for those wishing to utilise it..
Social Distancing and Venue Capacity
Social distancing requirements will still be practiced within the club. This means, patrons that are not from the same household will need to keep 1.5 metres away from others wherever possible, avoid physical greetings such as handshaking, hugs, and kisses, and to not enter crowded spaces.
Central has a venue capacity of 150 patrons, members will be given preference, so we ask that members and guests ring ahead and reserve a table for them to be seated at. This is based on the recommendation of 1 person per 4m2. Bookings will be kept to a maximum of 10 people as per NSW Government guidelines.
You will notice bollards, floor stickers and signage directing you to follow a one-way entry/exit plan – this is to ensure your safety and adherence to guidelines from NSW Health.
Please ensure you are respectful of our team and their implementation of these new regulations and practice social distancing in your interactions with staff also.
Food Safety Standards
We can assure our patrons, that as always, we are adhering to best practice food safety guidelines as per Australian Institute of Food Safety. All staff have complete extensive COVID-19 training issued from both private training service and the Australian Government.
It is the recommendation of the Australian Government, State Government and ClubsNSW to remove any buffet style dining options or communal bar snacks. As a result, the salad and vegetable bar will not be returning to the bistro.
Until further advice is given, the courtesy bus will not be running.
While cash is being accepted throughout the whole club, we recommend that patrons use contactless payments e.g. tap and go, membership points and prizes.
Venue Plan & COVID-19 Policy
All of the above steps, and implementation of the Covid-19 Policy and Venue Plan are to ensure we are minimising risk. These documents are available if a member or patron wishes to read these documents, please see Reception.
We thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing all your smiling faces back in the Club from the 1st June!
