RE-OPEN FRIDAY 15TH OCTOBER

Cardiff RSL Club is expecting to re-open on Friday 15th October 2021. This is following the recent announcements in regards to the NSW Government Roadmap to Freedom

Before we can re-open, Cardiff RSL Management would like to advise you of conditions that will take place once we re-open.

Cardiff RSL has been advised by our Industry Body ClubsNSW that, upon re-opening, patrons can only access the Club Premises if they are fully vaccinated or medically exempt.

ClubsNSW is working with the NSW Government on the Service NSW “vaccine passport”, which will give Clubs and patrons an avenue to verify vaccination status. This is now operational, update your Service NSW App now and link your digital certificate using the Medicare App. Please read the following as it is crucial for the successful re-opening of the Club.

We kindly ask that you have this information ready before you arrive at the Club, to prevent crowding and to assist our staff who are there to help you sign into the club.

Following are some frequently asked questions that may help make this process easier for everyone.

You can prove you are fully vaccinated through your:
COVID-19 digital certificate
Immunisation history statement.
You can access your proof of vaccination (COVID-19 digital certificate or immunisation history statement) using:
• Your Medicare online account through myGov
• The Express Plus Medicare mobile app, which also gives you the option of adding your digital certificate to an Apple Wallet or Google Pay.
• Service NSW App, having your digital certificate linked to the App.

How can I prove I’m fully vaccinated?

Immunisation history statement.

Where can I access my proof of vaccination?
You can access your proof of vaccination (COVID-19 digital certificate or immunisation history statement) using:
• Your Medicare online account through myGov • The Express Plus Medicare mobile app, which also gives you the option of adding your digital certificate to an Apple Wallet or Google Pay.

Can I come to the club if I’ve only had one vaccine dose?
The NSW Government has announced that only people who have received both doses of the vaccine can come to the club the Monday after NSW reaches the 70 per cent double-dose milestone.

How can I get proof in hard copy?
You can ask your vaccination provider to print your immunisation history statement.
You can also call the Australian Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809 and ask them to send your statement to you. It can take up to 14 days to arrive in the post.

What if I can’t get vaccinated?
Subject to the legislation which mandates vaccinations, people who can’t be vaccinated may be permitted to enter the club if they obtain a “contraindication certificate” in the approved form. Please consult your medical practitioner for further information. It is likely that we will only be permitted to accept a medical exemption in the approved form.

How can I prove to the club that I’m fully vaccinated or medically exempt?
You can show our staff proof of vaccination:
• Open your Express Plus Medicare mobile app, click “Immunisation history” and then click “View COVID-19 digital certificate”
• Access the COVID-19 digital certificate in your Apple Wallet or Google Pay
• Present a hard copy of your immunisation history statement
• Present a hard copy of a medical exemption (contraindication certificate) completed by a medical practitioner.

How will the club know my proof of vaccine or medical exemption is authentic?
At our discretion, we may attempt to verify that your “proof of vaccine” is authentic. We remind you that it is a federal offence to falsify this information.

Where can I find more information?
Further information on accessing and proving your vaccination status can be found on the Services Australia website and the NSW Government website.
