Community Venues Update

Most of our venues are open to regular hirers and capacity limits and entry requirements apply. Venue hirers and customers must be fully vaccinated or medically exempt. People under 16 years of age, who are not fully vaccinated, must be accompanied by a fully vaccinated household member.

Check in using QR codes provided and show proof of vaccination on entry, wear a mask and help us maintain social distancing to keep everyone safe and well. Please regularly check updates from NSW Health and follow public health order requirements.
