An important message from the CEO

An important update for Members, Guests and Visitors of Club Five Dock RSL.

As a Community based organisation with close to 12,500 Members we are taking advice on COVID–19 corona virus seriously, and as a result have implemented the following measures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our Staff, Members, Guests and Visitors. Our primary concern will be to protect people, ensure our obligations under the WHS Act 2011 and maintain our Duty of Care to our Staff, and to persons on, or seeking to visit our premises.

Therefore, all persons who have returned from overseas travel from midnight Monday 16th March 2020, or been in contact with people who have returned from overseas travel are required by the government to self-isolate for a period of 14 days and as a result will not be permitted to enter Club Five Dock RSL premises.
All persons whose place of employment, education or socialisation that has been closed due to a confirmed case of COVID-19 are not to enter Club Five Dock RSL.
All persons who experience or show signs of flu like symptoms are not to enter Club Five Dock RSL. These symptoms may include fever, cough, sore throat, tiredness and shortness of breath.

Persons who are onsite and showing flu like symptoms will be asked to leave the premises.
We encourage all persons who are experiencing flu like symptoms to follow the advice of NSW Health. For more information on COVID-19 visit www.health.nsw.gov.au/coronavirus

Club Five Dock RSL has increased signage within the venue to inform Staff, Members, Guests and Visitors of good hygiene practices.
While onsite at Club Five Dock RSL Staff, Members, Guests and Visitors are encouraged to practice social distancing and good personal hygiene including,
• social distancing, which means maintaining a distance of 1.5 meter from other people for an extended period, and not shaking hands
• cleaning your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or use an alcohol based hand rub.
• cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with a tissue or flexed elbow
We encourage attendees of organised functions and events at Club Five Dock RSL to liaise directly with those organisers, rather than Club Five Dock RSL.
