The goal of KRC has always been to provide a safe and fun environment to share our love of tennis with our ohana. We have gone to great lengths to balance our obligation to keep our community as safe as possible while also allowing our club to remain as open as possible. The Mayor’s recent order requires restaurants and bars to only be open to those who can show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within the previous 48 hours. We have confirmed that this order applies to our cafe/bar when they are open for business.
We have reviewed the approaches of several other clubs on the island in deciding how to implement this order for our bar/cafe areas and whether to mandate vaccination for use of the club. We have decided not to initiate a blanket vaccination requirement for use of the club for the following reasons: (1) A large majority of our club space and activities are outside; (2) Our cafe/bar are only open limited hours; and (3) We have the ability to easily designate cafe/bar areas from other parts of the club.
Due to the Mayor’s latest COVID-related order, the following rules will apply starting September 13, 2021:
In general, all people who would like to use the designated cafe/bar areas(see the map below) during cafe/bar open hours, are required to submit proof of vaccination or a negative covid test prior to arriving at the club, based on the rules below.
WHEN DOES THE REQUIREMENT APPLY? Starting September 13, 2021 Tuesday / Friday: 4:30pm - 10:00pm Saturday / Sunday: 9:00am - 1:00pm
WHAT AREAS DOES THIS APPLY TO?(see the map below) The lanai, pool, and grass area surrounding both the lanai and pool (cafe/bar/pool service area)
WHO DOES THIS APPLY TO? All persons (members, guests, and employees) ages 12 and up who intend to use the cafe/bar/pool service area during the hours designated above.
VACCINE / TESTING SUBMISSION REQUIREMENT
The vaccine or test documentation must be submitted prior to coming to the club. Use the link in the button below to complete your submission.
If submitting a vaccine proof, you only need to submit it once.
If you are submitting a negative COVID test, the test collection date and time must be within 48 hours of your arrival at the club.
Acceptable Full Vaccination Proof
Proof of full vaccination means demonstrating that a person has completed a vaccination regimen approved by the Hawaii Department of Health in compliance with all requirements of the State’s Safe Travels program through providing:
a hard copy of a state-approved vaccination card.
a photograph/digital copy of a state-approved vaccination card; or
a Hawaii state-approved digital/smart device application confirming full vaccination status (including via the Safe Travels program/application).
And identification with the same information as the proof of vaccination.
“Full vaccination” means two weeks have passed after the second dose in a two-dose COVID-19 vaccination series which has been authorized for emergency use or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Or two weeks have passed after a single-dose COVID-19 vaccination which has been authorized for emergency use or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, regardless of whether a COVID-19 vaccine booster has been received.
What is an acceptable negative COVID-19 test?
A negative test result must be a U.S. Food and Drug Administration emergency use authorization, or approved molecular test, or antigen test taken within 48 hours of entry to a business included in this emergency order.
And identification with the same information as the negative COVID-19 test.
The testing/vaccine requirement does not apply to take-out orders. However, if you have not submitted a vaccine proof or COVID test, then you must make your take-out order online.
During cafe/bar open hours, those who have not submitted proof of vaccination or proper testing cannot consume food or alcoholic beverages anywhere on KRC property.
Anyone who uses the pool and surrounding areas during cafe/bar open times is subject to this requirement.
No food or beverages are allowed to be consumed in the bathrooms or clubhouse at any time.
REMINDER: Masks must be worn in the clubhouse and bathrooms. This rule is still in effect.
