Under the State Government’s new COVID-19 Directions Orders ANZAC House will be affected by the directions which require any hospitality venue with a capacity of more than 500 persons/patrons to request Proof of Vaccination to enter.
These directions will relate to any patrons visiting Level 1 or attending events, within the function areas on Levels 5, 6 and 7, and will come into effect from Monday, 17 January 2022 when the ANZAC Club re-opens and other activities recommence on the upper floors.
These floors have a combined capacity of greater than 500 patrons/persons and form the dedicated licensed areas as per RSLWA’s Liquor Licence endorsed by the Director of Liquor Licensing under the Liquor Control Act 1988.
Under the provisions ANZAC House is classified as a High-Risk Venue – COVID RESTRICTIONS (GATHERINGS AND RELATED MEASURES) DIRECTIONS (No.3) – and RSLWA must comply with the provisions in accordance with its approved licence areas, irrespective of whether these areas are not always used for functions (for example, meetings or seminars).
Penalties for non-compliance range in fines of up to $20,000 for individuals and $100,000 for owners.
Any person within ANZAC House or who are external visitors must provide Proof of Vaccination to enter these four Levels.
