Update of Clubhouses' Operation and Interim Guest Policy (updated Saturday, 28 November)

In light of the significant increase in positive COVID-19 cases which have included some of our Members, Management has undertaken a further risk assessment to protect the health of our Members and employees and as a result we have had to make some changes to the current operations of our Clubhouses.

  • Closure of Swimming Pools and Changing Rooms at ALL Clubhouses for 7 Days
    As such, in view of the continued threat of the high number of local transmissions and the elevated risks associated with Changing Room facilities, the Club has closed ALL Changing Rooms and Swimming Pools with effect from Friday, 27 November for the next 7 days.
  • Interim Guest Policy
    In parallel, we will only permit Members and their family members access to the Clubhouses and Happy Valley Racecourse non-race day dining outlets until further notice.
    Family members are grandparents, parents, children, grandchildren and siblings of HKJC Members

We hope to count on your understanding and support of these measures in the interest of the safety of our Members, guests and employees and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The Hilltop Swimming Pool, Gym and Six Furlong Express will remain closed due to the timber roof rectification works. All Children’s facilities (indoor and outdoor), the Entertainment Room, Steam and Sauna suites will also be closed as per the recent COVID-19 vigilance directives issued by the government.

We would like to thank Members for their patience and understanding, and look forward to welcoming you back this Friday.

B) Positive Member Case at Happy Valley New Clubhouse (issued Thursday, 26 November)

We have been informed by a Member yesterday whom has been tested positive for COVID-19.  Based on our preliminary investigation, the Member concerned has recently visited the Stables Café, the Valley Gym and 5/F Changing Room on 22 November.

To put the safety of our Members, guests and employees as top priority and allow for the necessary tracing and testing, Stables Cafe, Valley Gym and 5/F Changing Rooms will remain closed until further notice.

This is a necessary arrangement for us to trace and reach out to Members who have come into contact with the Member concerned and complete the medical testings of the employees who have come into similar contact.

As a latest directive, we would like to remind Members or their guests not to use any Club facilities if they live in the same buildings as any confirmed cases as announced by the Government or have been in contact with confirmed COVID-19 patients. The Declaration Form has been updated to reflect this.

We sincerely apologise for the extended closure of some of the facilities and any inconvenience caused. Members may refer to this website for further updates.
