Clubs on the northern beaches to continue mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy

SEVERAL registered clubs on the Northern Beaches have announced they will continue the mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy for staff and patronsuntil at least January 31 next year.

This is in contrast to the state government lifting restrictions for the unvaccinated from December 15, 2021.

All staff, members, guests and contractors will need to continue to show proof they are fully vaccinated, or have a medical exemption, before they are allowed entry.

Balgowlah RSL Club, Club Belrose, Club Totem, Dee Why RSL Club, Forestville RSL Club, Manly Leagues Club, The Beach Club Collaroy and Wakehurst Golf Club will all maintain a mandatory vaccination policy after December 15.

"The ongoing health and safety of our staff, patrons and the wider community is our highest priority," said Grant Easterby, CEO of Dee Why RSL.

Dee Why RSL is continuing to ban invaxxinated punters.

"Considering the vaccination rate of the Northern Beaches is 94 per cent, it is obvious our community has embraced the vaccination with enthusiasm and we firmly believe this proactive step will be appreciated by the overwhelming majority.

"We are all mindful of current NSW Health Orders and the stance taken by other national businesses such as QANTAS, Virgin Airlines and Coles."

Clubs will review this decision on January 31, 2022, or if COVID circumstances change.
