Dear members, guests, and staff,
As at 17th March, 2020, the state of NSW has the highest reported number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Australia at 170. We feel we have for ourselves and those around us, including our members, guests, staff, and contractors that frequent the Club, effective immediately the following guidelines and policy relating to COVID-19 will take effect at Kurri Golf Club:
If you have returned, or been in close contact with someone who has returned from any country outside of Australia, including those on a cruise, you cannot attend the Club (the Club being inclusive of the entire site and property boundaries of Kurri Golf Club e.g. practice facilities etc) until you have self-isolated for a 14 day period.
A reminder, that you are now required to self-isolate for 14 days upon your return from overseas in accordance with government advice to minimise the spread of COVID-19.
The Club has provided an increased number of hand sanitiser dispensers around the Clubhouse and members are encouraged to use these dispensers if necessary. Where possible, frequently touched surfaces will be sanitised more regularly at the Club by our team, this includes counter surfaces, scorecard return screens, and motorised carts. Regularly accessed doors at the Club will also be left ajar to minimise risk.
At this stage business is as per usual, however we encourage members and visitors attending Kurri Golf Club to minimise close person-to-person contact where possible and to exhibit an increased awareness of personal hygiene as has been encouraged by State and Federal health departments.
The management and Board feel that this is both a sensible and relevant approach in protecting our membership (a portion of which are elderly and at risk), guests, staff and contractors that frequent the Club, and generally "doing our bit" to minimise COVID-19's spread. We will continue to be guided by the advice issued by the State and Federal governments which will result in the Club's policy changing regularly in an effort to adapt. Any changes will be communicated to the Club's membership via website post and Newsletter in addition to hard copy notices around the Club.
The Club is currently reviewing contingencies, should public information and government advice change, and our operation be required to comply with operating restrictions or similar, within a short time period.
