The Club is moving to “Type C” under “Vaccine Bubble” on July 1
      
Dear Fellow Members,
I am pleased to be able to share with you some encouraging news.
More than 90% of our FCC staff have so far begun their vaccinations, including those who are medically exempted. Such a high rate will soon allow the Club to gradually increase our operations as we work to return to something more like our pre-pandemic ‘normal’.
Our next goal is to move to the government’s “Type C” category, which will allow us greater operating flexibility. We will do this effective July 1. Please note: this requires action from members as well as staff.
“Type C” will enable us to increase table size to six persons from the four allowed under our current Type B category, and to extend the closing time from 10pm until midnight. We hope to expand operations further over the next few months.
To get to “Type C”, all of our staff must have received at least first dose of a vaccine. We’re confident we will manage this by the end of June.
The change for members is that they and their guests will have to use the government’s Leave Home Safe app to visit the Club. This is a government stipulation and those who do not do so face a $5000 fine. There is no exception for not having a smartphone. The only exception is for visitors under the age of 16, and those 65 or older, who can still fill out a paper form.
Please be aware that individuals – that is, members and their guests – bear responsibility for using the app, not the Club, in case of an inspection and a fine being issued.
We’re looking forward to welcoming more members back to the Club under “Type C” and also to bringing back more of the atmosphere and buzz that make the Club such a magnet for us all. These measures will also go some way to reducing the financial deficit caused by the restrictions associated with the pandemic.
I expect that in early August, we will be able to go further still and move the first floor to Type D. That would mean the Main Dining Room, the Verandah as well as the Hughes and Burton Rooms could operate with 8 people per table and stay open until 2am. They will also be allowed to have events and functions for up to 100 people. For that to happen, all members using that floor will need to have had at least their first vaccination, or bring a medical exemption certificate along with a negative result from a Covid test taken in the last three days.
We’ll update you on our progress towards that goal in the coming weeks. We plan that the Main Bar and Lounge as well as Bert’s, will continue to operate under “Type C” even if the first floor goes to Type D.
These are important milestones in our efforts to return to normality and improve the Club’s financial performance and they can be met only with your cooperation and support. Thank you!

致各位會員:
首先,很高興在此與大家分享一個令人鼓舞的消息。
至目前為止,本會已有超過九成員工開始接種疫苗,包括已取得醫生證明書而獲豁免者,有望能夠逐步地回復到疫情前的正常運作。
由7月1日開始,本會將轉換到C類的運作模式,當中需要會員和員工的一定配合。
由B類轉換到C類的運作模式,每枱人數可由最多4人增加到6人,營業時間由晚上10時延長至午夜12時。我們期望在未來數月可以再進一步恢復一切運作。
為達到C類的運作模式,所有員工必須已接種第一劑疫苗,我們有信心員工會在6月底前完成。
根據政府規例,會員和賓客必須使用「安心出行」進入本會,而該程式需在智能電話下載。若違反規定,可處定額罰款5,000元。至於未滿16 歲,及65歲或以上則可選擇填顧客資料記錄表。
就有關巡查或罰款細則,在此提醒各位會員和賓客,使用「安心出行」應用程式屬個人責任,而非本會。
本會希望C類運作模式可以款待更多會員,亦能帶動更多歡樂氣氛,提高本會的吸引力,同時舒緩因社交距離限制而帶來的財政赤字。
預計8月初開始,一樓樓層將進一步轉換到D類的運作模式,即Main Dining Room、Verandah、名仕閣和漾馨廳可以每枱最多8人,營業時間延長至凌晨2時,宴會人數上限亦可增至100人。為此,所有會員和賓客必須已接種第一劑疫苗,或因健康理由不適合接種者需出示醫生證明書及宴會前3日內檢測結果呈陰性證明。
在未來數星期,我們會定期向大家更新營運進度。儘管一樓樓層轉換到D類的運作模式, Main Bar、Lounge和Bert’s會繼續在C類的模式下運作。
有賴各會員的攜手合作和支持,本會才能努力回復正常運作及改善財政狀況,共同實現這個重要的里程碑。
特此感謝!
