New Covid Measures for Banquets

New Covid Measures for Banquets

The Government has announced that with effect from Thursday 6 October, all persons attending banquets involving more than 12 people will need to show a photo of their negative rapid antigen test (RAT) taken within the preceding 24 hours.
  • The diner’s name and the date and time of the test must be marked on the RAT itself.
  • Please show the photo of your negative RAT to our staff prior to entering whichever restaurant or function room your dining event is taking place.
  • Please note that an SMS notification containing the negative result of a negative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test taken within the preceding 48 hours can be used instead of a photo of a negative RAT.
Definition of a Banquet

The Secretary for Health defined the term ‘banquet’ as:
  • Total number of attendees exceeding 12 persons and occupying more than 1 table.
  • Attendees are sharing the same objective and are dining together.
We highly encourage all members who intend to host dining gatherings at the Club for more than 12 people to inform their guests of the Government’s new requirements at the earliest opportunity. It is important to note that, due to hygiene reasons, the Club will not provide RAT kits to members or their guests.

Any persons who are unable to provide proof of a negative test taken within the required period will not be permitted to enter the venue.
