Club Malua advise "We are very committed to the safety of our staff, customers, and wider community and will continue to operate under the advice which NSW Health has provided to us. NSW Health has advised those with symptoms to get tested and stay home.
"Please stay COVID safe and remember to keep physical distance and sanitise thoroughly and let’s work together with NSW Health to stop the spread in our community." Update at 3:02pm from Club Malua: At this stage NSW Health are classing people who attended the venue on the above date as casual contacts. This means they do not have to self-isolate but should watch for symptoms.
There is no ongoing risk to the club, however please ensure your staff remain vigilant and watch for any symptoms. Anyone who develops symptoms should be tested and remain at home until results are back. To organise testing at your local clinic, please call 1800 999 880.
Club Malua will engage certified COVID-19 Cleaning and once the venue is classified as safe, we will be able to re-open the doors. ************************************
