COVID Alert Level Delta 2 – Bars, Bistro and Office are open with restrictions in place

Russell is open Wednesday – Saturday from 5pm

As you are aware, government has made very strict mandates which we have to enforce. We have limited capacity, not only from the maximum of 50 people allowed at any time, but also from the perspective of serving at tables with the limited staff we have. Bookings are strongly recommended.

• The 3 S’s still apply: stay seated, separated and served – no mingling, no approaching the bars
• Face masks are mandatory in indoor facilities – you may remove them to eat and drink in hospitality venues
• Scanning in is mandatory – or manual signing in if you won’t use the COVID App
• Numbers are restricted to 50 people maximum
We will be unable to hold any events or functions of any form while in this new level 2.
