COVID-19 Update

As of 20 March 2020

Kawana Surf Club’s mission is to ensure the well-being of the community and safety of our locals year round as a non for profit that works to raise funds for our lifesaving service.

Here at the surf club, we continue to be committed to this cause and ensuring the health and well-being of our patrons and staff who help us in these efforts daily.

As we are monitoring the impact of COVID-19, your safety remains our top priority.

We look to provide you with the updates of our procedures as we work within the government’s new guidelines and operational rules. The Prime Minister announced that non-essential indoor gatherings would be restricted to 100 people. Therefore, this allows the pubs, clubs and restaurants to have up to 100 people in each section of their premises. We have taken measures already to ensure this is adhered to as well as taking extra precautions.

What we're doing

Our staff are playing a significant part in dealing with COVID-19 by exercising good personal hygiene, maintaining personal distance from others and staying home if they are not feeling well.

To build on our high standard of cleaning and sanitation procedures, we will be increasing the frequency of work required to maintain these standards. This includes all kids' facilities and high chairs, toilet areas, door handles, card readers and gaming machines.

Dining options

We recommend all diners make a reservation, in order to help us comply with Government advice of limiting the number of customers inside. Kawana Surf Club is offering bookings and an online takeaway menu. Deliveries available for delivery Wednesday to Sunday from the most southern part of Wurtulla to Alexandra Headlands. Dine in is available, bookings essential, Wednesday to Sunday for all day dining.

Cutlery at the club will be individually wrapped and given to you with your meal. Seats and tables will also be further spaced out to allow for more distance between other customers and will be sanitised before seating.

Kids' area

Our kids' areas will close as of Thursday 19th March.

Bar & gaming

While self-serve water stations will be temporarily closed, the bar staff will be happy to assist if you require water.

In the gaming area, the self-serve tea and coffee machines will be temporarily removed for your health and safety. Barista coffee will be available freely for all members.

Events & functions

If you have an upcoming event booked with us, we recommend speaking to the functions team directly should you wish to make any changes, or have any concerns.

We will endeavour to accommodate your requirements within the limitations of the social distancing requirements.

What we request you do

We ask that where possible, you use PayWave / tap rather than cash.

All visitors are expected to follow basic good hygiene practices, including:

  • Sanitising your hands on entry and exit
  • Regularly and thoroughly washing your hands, including before and after eating and using the restrooms
  • Maintain 'social distancing' of 1.5m
  • Avoid physical contact when greeting
  • Cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze.
  • We request that all customers evaluate their health and that of people they are in close contact

Finally we request that you not visit the venue, and consult your doctor if any of the following apply:

  • You are experiencing flu-like symptoms
  • You have travelled to another area and are showing symptoms of COVID-19
  • You have been in close contact with a person who has been diagnosed or displays the symptoms of COVID-19

As this remains an ongoing and ever-changing situation, we will provide updates on our Facebook page, websites and via additional emails. In the meantime, we encourage you to take care of yourself and those around you as we continue to provide excellent service to all our valued customers. As you make plans to go out, remember we have plenty of room & a beautiful sea breeze to keep you refreshed in these unfamiliar times.

If you are self-isolating we will be able to assist with home deliveries (to be announced soon).

Look forward to seeing you all in good health again shortly.
