RASCAL and Covid-19

Following the recent relaxing of the NSW Public Health Orders for COVID, RASCAL has returned to our normal regime of casual bookings for bookings from the 1st of March, including through the ski season (with the normal opportunities throughout the year to make a block booking of the lodge.)  While the requirements are not as restrictive as last year, as we are an unmanaged facility we will required the support and cooperation of our members and their guests to ensure we remain compliant with the rules, and that we continue to provide a safe environment.

RASCAL has registered as a COVID safe business, and now has a NSW Government supplied QR code for checking in to the lodge.  The QR code can be found in the foyer and in locations throughout the lodge.  All lodge occupants over will need to be checked in using the QR code and the Service NSW app.  Please install and test the app prior to arriving at the lodge.  Full details on how to get the app and how to use it can be found here.  All users of the lodge will need to complete a Waiver of Liability which can be found here.

The committee will continue to update the COVID management plan to ensure that we remain compliant and provide a suitable level of protection for users of the lodge.  As the plan is updated it will be re-posted to the website, any specific requirements relating to bookings will be communicated as part of the pre-check in email.
