The Warrnambool Returned Services League will open its doors on June 17 as the venue takes extra coronavirus precautions for its patrons.
Sub-branch president John Miles said the extended closure comes from the authority of RSL Victoria.
"It's been a hard time," he said.
"Every dollar spent in the RSL goes towards veteran support so we haven't been able to support our veterans as we used to.
"But we are surviving."
Mr Miles said the best way patrons can find out whether the RSL has re-opened is by the return of the flags to their masts outside the venue.
"A lot of our customers and members are elderly and that is one of the main reasons in leaving the RSL closed longer," he said.
"We are thinking of them and taking every precaution.
"It's a bit of a shame but it will be fantastic when we can re-open.
"When the flags out the front are raised, we will be open again."
