CoVID-19 re-open procedure

Illawarra Yacht Club is preparing to re-open our Club. Before we can, we need to test our new CoVID-19 procedures and consult with our staff on the safety of their workplace. The Club will remain closed whilst this testing takes place to assure our compliance with the Public Health Order and the SafeWork Australia guidelines.

Over the next week or so we will begin to invite a limited number of members to the Club so we can test our CoVID-19 Management Plan, Emergency Plan and our internal Procedures. We have also consulted with our Licensing Police on how to best stage our re-opening.

So, whilst you may notice some members visiting our Club – this is in a controlled and limited way to test our plans and procedures. The Club is not open to the public despite some members being at the Club. When we are sure of our safety standards we will open the Club to the public.

Our employees are excited about the prospect of returning to work and look forward to welcoming you all again soon.

Club Currently Closed.
