How are you managing the health and safety of employees and members?

Keeping our members and employees safe is our number one priority. We will continue to apply the highest standard of cleanliness and hygiene across our facilities. We've increased our cleaning schedules including daily deep sanitisation of venue prior to opening, installed toilet sanitiser, additional hand sanitiser and soap dispensers. Our increased focus on social distancing assistance measures includes on-ground markers, queuing systems, signage, regular announcements and every second poker machine switched off. We have dedicated CovidSAFE Marshals monitoring numbers and enforcing social distancing requirements.

How can members assist with keeping each other safe?

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

Safe social distancing requirements include:

- No standing, guests must remain seated when not placing or collecting an order;

- Members must remain within their group and not move to another group of guests;

- Ensure 1.5 metres between groups;

- No more than 20 customers at a table.

To make it easier for you to visualise the recommended safe physical distance between people when ordering, please look for the markings our team have placed on the floor. Standing on these marked areas will ensure you are separated from other customers by the recommended 1.5 metres.

Members who feel unwell with cold or flu like symptoms are requested to follow advice of health authorities and avoid attending Wests Clubs.

It is important that we all stay safe by adhering to government directions and if you have not already done so, please join us in downloading the CovidSAFE app.

Do family members need to socially distance inside the club?

Members of the same household are not required to socially distance. Family members should observe distancing standards where they are not in the same household. Seating will be arranged so that chairs are distanced at 1.5 metres, to give all members the opportunity to socially distance. Members of the same household may wish to bring seating closer together. If members are not from the same household, our Club CovidSAFE Marshals will advise members to observe distancing of 1.5 metres between each other.
