Despite Victoria recording another 19 cases of COVID-19 on Sunday and the state government imposing tougher restrictions, the Corryong Sporting Complex will re-open with a brand new look.
Now branded as ‘The Club Corryong’, it will open its doors at 4pm today with social distancing restrictions being put in place.
During the pandemic lockdown, the committee has been busy giving the club a lick of paint, installing new tables and refurbishing the verandah area. New signage is also being installed in town.
A ‘deep clean’ including the carpets has also been carried out in readiness for the re-opening.
The patron limit will be 20 people seated per enclosed space subject to the one person per four square metres rule. This means a maximum of 20 people in the bar area, where club members will be given precedence. Another 20 patrons will be permitted in Chopsticks restaurant, which will re-open tomorrow night at 5.30pm.
Groups of up to 10 people can dine or drink together and can be seated at the same table. Tables will be spaced 1.5 metres apart. Alcohol can be served without a meal when patrons are seated.
To support contact tracing, each person who attends the club premises for more than 15 minutes must provide their contact details.
Members are advised that the Joker Poker draw and raffles have been postponed until all members are able to participate.
