QLD Government Vaccination Mandate
Clubs didn't make the rules but they are required to apply them.
We are following the Queensland State Government health directive so we can continue to stay open and support our members.
Everyone visiting and working at both our clubs needs to be double vaccinated come Friday 17 December 2021.
Please ensure you know how to access your vaccination certificate on the Check In Qld app, Medicare app and MyGov website.
It may be a good idea to print and laminate a copy of your certificate in case these sites go down or internet isn't available.
Visit the Queensland government's website for details on how to add your Covid-19 digital certificate to the Check In Qld app.
