A recent change to the number of patrons permitted inside a restaurant was welcome news for Club Taree.
On July 1, the NSW government lifted a 50 person limit on restaurants, bars and clubs to allow the 'one person per four square metres' COVID-19 ruling to apply.
That's resulted in a busy fortnight at the Dineon19 restaurant, according to Club Taree chief executive Morgan Stewart.
"That sounds like not much (the rule change) but it turned out to be really great for us and other businesses around town," Mr Stewart said.
"Our members have come back strongly, our social seniors are enjoying our $10 lunch special.
"The place is busy and we're really happy."
Bookings are required but not essential.
Strict protocol applies to all members and guests who enter the club. A staff member, armed with digital thermometers, will check everyone's temperature and instruct the use of hand sanitiser.
After signing in, patrons must provide contact details in case a COVID-19 diagnosis needs to be traced.
"We're all about safety here at Club Taree and like we say in food 'the eyes buy' and in safety and insurance we want you to know we're doing the right thing and that's consistent with us all the way through," Mr Stewart said.
"Help us to help you help the community. Enjoy yourselves but most importantly stay safe, wash your hands, remember to check in and keep your social distancing at heart."
While business is booming in the restaurant, The Hive takeaway outlet continues to do strong trade.
Golf championships and competitions continue to be decided on the course each week.
For those who enjoy a less strenuous activity, the raffles are back up and running. It won't be long before the familiar sound of 'legs eleven' returns with bingo back on the agenda soon.
"We're happy talking to people and hearing how their journey through this COVID craziness has been going too," Mr Stewart added.
Once again the club will host a trivia night to launch the annual le Tour de Taree. The event, to be held on Friday August 28, will kick off fundraising for Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern NSW.
