Be kind to our staff and newbies coming on so that we can retrain these staff and get the club back to where it once was pre the pandemic. Your understanding with the staff shortages we are currently experiencing is greatly appreciated.
If you know of anyone with a hospitality background looking for work please ask them to email their resume. We are looking for chefs, cooks, kitchen hands, sandwich hands, wait staff, bar staff, gaming and bistro supervisors, gaming and TAB staff.
To reiterate the Government mandated conditions of entry I provide the following information:
PROOF OF VACCINATION STATUS
As part of opening, we will need to confirm the vaccination status of all members and visitors to the club. This includes customers, workers and any contractors or visitors, over the age of 12 years and 2 months.
The rule: All visitors to the premises, including customers, workers, and contractors, must provide proof of vaccination status before entry.
We encourage you to have the Express Plus Medicare app which you can download from the App store or Google Play store. Update your Service Victoria app at the App store or Google Play store. Open the Express Plus Medicare app. Tap ‘Immunization history’. Click on your name. Tap ‘Share Certificate’. You’ll see a list of apps that you can share your certificate to. Tap ‘share’ next to Service Victoria. Read the conditions and tap ‘Accept and share’. Tap ‘Add certificate’. Your COVID-19 digital certificate is now stored in your Service Victoria app and linked to the QR code check-in function.
You will be required to check-in using the Service Victoria QR Code and a staff member will check to confirm your vaccination status before entry.
I’ve also had our sign in terminals updated with the Covid Vaccine Confirmation screen along with a staff pin code for a staff member to verify the Vaccination Certificate has been sighted before the sign in can proceed. Patrons only need to Confirm Vaccination Status on their first visit. On subsequent visits, the system will identify the vaccination status when a member swipes their card or if it recognised a previous scanned ID – it will then proceed directly with the sign in.
If you do not have a smart phone, the Australian Immunisation Register can issue you with a printed copy of your certificate. You can also download and print a copy of your COVID-19 vaccination certificate from myGov.
We know this is new and we haven’t done this before, but we’re counting on you to support us so we can get back to normal.
The rule: If customers have a medical exemption, they may enter the premises.
You will be asked to show evidence of your medical exemption to the club – such as a medical certificate or a letter from a medical practitioner, then you may enter.
The rule: Children over 12 years and 2 months old must be fully vaccinated to enter the club, except those with medical exemptions. Children under 12 years old do not need to be vaccinated but must be accompanied by fully vaccinated adults.
SERVICE VICTORIA APP
The rule: Currently only one COVID-19 digital certificate can be linked to each Service Victoria app, so each patron will need to display their vaccination status on their device.
The club has the right to ask for additional identification alongside a COVID-19 digital certificate if it is provided as a hard copy.
PRIVACY AND DATA CONCERNS
The rule: The Victorian Government does not have access to any data linked to a person’s Medicare account, such as information about non-COVID vaccinations. Only the phone user has access to a COVID-19 digital certificate stored on the app.
The rule: A venue has the right to refuse entry to someone who cannot or will not show proof of vaccination. Legal protections are in place. Patrons and visitors must prove their vaccination or exemption status to enter a venue. Please respect our staff.
We do look forward to seeing you all back at the club soon.
