The Foreign Correspondents’ Club has continued to operate in accordance with government health and social-distancing guidelines and the club’s own procedures for protecting the health of our staff, members and guests amid the coronavirus outbreak. Given the situation in Hong Kong, the Board of Governors has decided to review the minimum-spend requirements during this period when social interaction is limited. Though the Club remains open and incurs its full daily operating costs, the Board has agreed to roll over the minimum-spending requirement for the three months ending March 31 until June 30. This will allow members to make a minimum spend of HK$1,800 over six months.
As with all procedures and measures being implemented at this time, the Club will review this going forward. We also will be providing information soon on enhanced takeout and delivery services for club members.
