How are we managing the health and safety of patrons and staff?

Keeping our patrons and staff safe is our number one priority. We will continue to apply the highest standard of cleanliness and hygiene in our venues. We have increased cleaning schedules including deep sanitisation prior to opening and installed hand sanitiser stations throughout all areas. Our increased focus on physical distancing assistance measures includes floor graphic decals, queuing systems and signage. We have dedicated COVID Safe ambassadors whose role is to ensure appropriate separation measures & personal hygiene procedures are complied with, monitoring the ongoing cleaning of areas and that density limits are not exceeded.

How can patrons assist with keeping each other safe?

In accordance with best practice guidelines we recommend all patrons adopt high standards of personal hygiene, including washing hands and using hand sanitiser frequently.

Mingling has been identified as a key risk factor. Contact or mingling between groups and tables should be reduced wherever possible.

Patrons are encouraged to practice physical distancing from others, where practicable. To make it easier for you to visualise a safe physical distance, please look for the floor graphic decals. Standing on these decals will ensure you are separated from other patrons by 1.5 metres.

Patrons who feel unwell with cold or flu like symptoms are requested to follow the advice of health authorities and stay at home. Patrons who exhibit any symptoms whilst in our venues will be asked to leave.

It’s important that we all stay safe by adhering to government directions and if you haven’t already done so, please join us in downloading the COVIDSafe app.

Households or other close contacts are not required to physically distance. Groups of friends may not necessarily all be household-like contacts and will be required to physically distance.
