Is it safe to visit your facilities?
There are no known specific risks associated with visiting an aquatic centre or health club, and as such, these facilities are considered at the same risk level as visiting any public facility. At this stage, the risk of the community spreading COVID-19 through our facility is low.
What can I do to protect myself when visiting your facilities?
- Follow all staff instructions, social distancing and hygiene signage at all times.
- Use the provided hand sanitiser stations regularly, particularly when entering and exiting the facility.
- Wash your hands often with soap and running water for at least 20 seconds. Dry with paper towel or a hand dryer.
- Wipe down any equipment you use throughout the centre with the wipes provided.
- Try not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
- Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow.
- Maintain at least 1.5 metres distance between yourself and others at all times.
I am sick, can I still visit your facilities?
We encourage anyone who has recently been or is currently sick, or who has been in contact with a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 carrier to remain at home and to seek advice from a medical professional.
What will happen if a COVID-19 infected person visits one of your facilities?
We have a specific infection control and response plan in place, which includes actions for disinfection of the facility and communication to patrons.
In the event of a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 carrier visiting the centre, this plan will be activated.
