DOOLEYS Management has taken immediate action to implement precautionary measures after being made aware of a second positive case of COVID-19 at our Lidcombe Club venue. 

A decision has been made to close DOOLEYS Lidcombe Catholic Club, DOOLEYS Health & Fitness Centre and the Administration building.

It is important to note that it is yet unclear whether these two cases are linked. We have taken this precautionary measure in the interest of the health and safety of employees, members and guests, as we await further advice and directives from NSW Health regarding this COVID case. 

In the meantime, we encourage members and guests to monitor for any COVID symptoms and to seek further information from NSW Health should they be concerned. 

Our key priority here at DOOLEYS is the safety, health and wellbeing of our employees, members and guests.  We are committed to ensuring DOOLEYS is a safe place to work and visit and our venues continue to be a trusted ‘home away from home’ for our 79,000 members.

Further information will be communicated to members as soon as it is available. 

We encourage members to visit our website or Facebook page for all the latest updates.
