COVID-19 Update


Our number one priority and commitment has always been the safety and wellbeing of our customers and staff. Therefore, to ensure a COVID-Safe environment, entering the Club will be a little different.


Access to Hornsby RSL Club is via both the front and rear foyers. Members and guests will be required to enter and exit separately, we ask that when entering the Club you keep to the left and when leaving the Club, again please keep to your left. We will have things clearly marked for you so please observe the signs and ensure you keep 1.5m distance at all times.

Staff will be available to direct patrons to a dining outlet to help disperse the crowd, reduce co-mingling in any areas, and encourage everyone to maintain a safe 1.5m distance from each other.


Hornsby RSL Club members will be required to present their membership card upon entry; second form of ID may also be required. Guests will also need to present a form of ID upon enterting the Club.

As a condition of entry members and guests will be required to sign in and out of the Club. Following NSW Government regulations, we are required to record the names and contact details of all members, guests, staff, contractors and any other person that enters the club, and to retain this information for 28 days for contact tracing purposes. For the avoidance of doubt, the details of any minors are not required to be recorded.

For your safety we will screen all patrons and temperature check as required. Patrons will be asked if they are feeling unwell and those displaying symptoms will not be able to enter the venue. We will also be requesting that all patrons utilise the hand sanitisers available. 

From 1st July, our facilities will be open to both Members and guests, and guests will no longer require to be signed in by a Member.


Highly visible CovidSAFE Marshals will be walking around our venue tasked with ensuring compliance of social distancing rules, answering questions and promoting good personal hygiene practices. Please follow our CovidSAFE Marshal’s instructions at all times as refusal to do so will result in being asked to leave the club premises.


Additional cleaning and sanitising procedures will be in place in all areas of the Club, including in back of house areas that are utilised by staff. Hand sanitiser dispensers are available throughout the Club and we encourage all patrons to regularly utilise these for safety and comfort. Additionally, we encourage patrons to regularly wash their hands, in particular before and after eating, and after handling cash or visiting the bathroom. Frequently touched surfaces such as button panels, handrails and bathrooms will be a focus of these additional procedures. We ask that all patrons please follow the recommendations and procedure signage placed around the Club to ensure the safety of all.
