COVID Passports.

Posted: 23/11/2021

Over the last two weeks we have been embedding the new process to comply with the new Government legislation on Covid certification.  This has been quite successful and we would like to thank our members and their guests for their patience as we implement the checking processes.  

As members will be aware, from Monday 13th December the requirement to prove vaccination status became enforceable across Northern Ireland in licensed premises with hefty fines for non-compliance. This does mean that to comply with the law we will have to refuse entry to anyone who cannot provide the correct documentation when entering the Club.  

We have been informed that the new regulations will be pro-actively policed therefore we would ask that members bring their documentation and be prepared to have it checked on every visit to the Club to ensure that we remain compliant if inspected.  

The following evidence will be accepted as proof of vaccination:

  1. Certification in paper or electronic form that both doses of the vaccine have been administered at least 14 days prior to entry (A vaccination card with evidence of both vaccinations plus photographic identification will continue to be accepted in the interim)
  2. Proof of a negative Lateral Flow Test in the form of a registered result through the Government website by either email or text,  report results here, (please do not bring your physical lateral flow test as evidence) 
  3. Proof of having had Covid in the form of a positive PCR test taken no earlier than 30 days, and no later than 180 days before entry (for example, a test taken within the last 180 days but not within the last month)
  4. Evidence provided through the NI Covid Certification process for the medical exemption from the vaccination

In line with recent Government recommendations, we would also encourage members to take a lateral flow test if available to them, ahead of attending any of our large events in the Club to protect your fellow members. 

We would like to remind members that we do not save any personal or medical data and would ask for your continued patience with our staff and volunteers over the busy Christmas period as we continue to refine our Covid certification processes.
