Welcome Home Countdown
- One Day to Go! 

June 18, 2020
Dear <<First Name>>,
 
We are one day away from reopening The Club and we look forward to welcoming you home. Thank you for your patience as we continue to receive and relay important updates from the relevant authorities regarding the Phase 2 reopening which starts on Friday, June 19.
 
We are heartened by the excitement surrounding the Club’s reopening, and our staff are responding to your inquiries as quickly as possible amidst a rush of preparations and queries from Members. The Club’s modified operating hours, new capacity limitations and Safe Management Measures have been consolidated here for your easy reference.   
 
Safe Management Measures
 
We are grateful that so many Members have thrown their strong support behind The Club’s firm approach to ensuring the health and safety of Members, their families, and our staff. We all must be socially responsible to safeguard our Club community and to ensure that the Clubhouse remains open for all to enjoy.
 
Safe Distancing Ambassadors
 
More than 30 staff have been designated as Safe Distancing Ambassadors, and they will be identified by a yellow armband. Safe Distancing Ambassadors will ensure adherence to The Club's Safe Management Measures, which are in line with regulatory requirements. Members must follow the guidance of Safe Distancing Ambassadors, who will be conducting inspections and checks throughout The Club to ensure compliance with safe and socially responsible behavior. Written notices will be handed to Members who are not observing safe distancing practices, to document the notice, and staff will maintain a list of Members who are not exercising social responsibility by following social distancing requirements.
 
Post-reopening Disciplinary Policy and Process for COVID-19
 
The threat of COVID-19 is still present. We have learned that all it takes is one incident to jeopardize The Club’s safe environment and expose Members, staff and their families to risk and anxiety. We all need to continue exercising caution during this post-reopening period, to mitigate the risk of a community infection. In the event that any Member or staff tests positive, The Club may have to close again. 
 
Furthermore, government agencies, including the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), the Singapore Land Authority (SLA), the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) and Enterprise Singapore (ESG), are stepping up enforcement and taking action against organizations that fail to execute Safe Management Measures in the post-reopening period. This may include issuing stop-work orders and imposing financial penalties, so The Club may be closed if Members and staff do not follow government guidelines.
 
With these considerations in mind, the General Committee has decided that there will be disciplinary consequences for Members who:
  • Do not exercise social responsibility and who jeopardize the safety of fellow Members and staff during this COVID-19 period.
  • Threaten or verbally abuse staff who are enforcing Safe Management Measures.  
Please refer to the full list of disciplinary consequences that can be enforced by the General Committee here.
