COVIDSafe Q&A

The NSW Government has extended COVID restrictions which were initially going to end on July 9, 2021. The Merimbula RSL Club remains a COVIDSafe venue and is following the rules and regulations as set out by the government. These are:

–        All front of house staff and visitors need to wear masks inside the club. As logic would suggest, you remove your masks when you are eating and drinking, then put them back on once you’re finished.

–     You must remain seated while in the club, restrictions don’t allow for standing while socialising.

–        Tuesday RSL Bingo, Tuesday night Poker, Thursday Marine Rescue Bingo, Thursday night Trivia and Sunday Legacy Bingo are on, as we have the space to meet the required one person per 4 square metre rule.

–      Live entertainment is on Saturday nights. Members and guests must remain seated as restrictions do not allow dancing.

  • Our Members Draws on Sunday and Wednesday nights are currently not running. We will let you know when they can start again.

–        Wednesday, Friday and Sunday night raffles are currently not running.

–        We must follow the one person per 4 square metre rule so you will notice signs on chairs and tables around the club that are unable to be used during restrictions.

Our number one priority during COVID has been on the health and wellbeing of our staff, members and guests, and we would like to thank you all for your continued co-operation and care to use our hand sanitiser stations and QR Code check-ins, and to stay at home if you’re feeling unwell.
