Hygiene and Sanitation guidelines

During this time, our members’ health, safety and well-being is very important to the team. To ensure our venue is operating in line with the stringent new government health department protocol, the team had previously prepared the club for re-opening. This involved a deep clean with a hospital-grade sanitiser, fogging of all public areas and implementing new cleaning and sanitising of all frequently touched surfaces.  In addition, all staff have completed COVID-safe training to ensure a safe visit for members and their guests.

When visiting Southport Sharks, we request patrons follow the below practices:

  • Sanitise hands upon arrival and at regular intervals
  • Wash hands for 20 seconds
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with elbow or tissue
  • Dispose of used tissues immediately into a rubbish bin
  • Maintain social distancing of 1.5 metres, using signage and floor markings as a guide.
  • Entry will not be permitted to a person displaying any symptoms of sickness

In August 2020 we’ve introduced enhanced measures, which include:

  • Hygiene Officers present in the venue (identifiable by their hi-vis vests)
  • Implementation of a swipe out kiosk
  • Regular announcements over the PA to all members and guests in the venue
  • Social distancing, hygiene and remain seated reminders
  • Additional cleaning of gaming machines and dining tables
  • Increased communication of COVID safe practices
