COVID-19 Update - Centre reopening 13 July 2020
Tuesday’s announcement that brought forward Stage Two COVID-19 restrictions was welcome news to many people and businesses throughout the State. We understand and acknowledge that this will excite many of our members and users.
We are pleased to announce an approved reopen date of Monday 13th July 2020, with most of our services being made available in some capacity, within guidelines and restrictions.
As a large Centre offering services that must comply with multiple industry guidelines, it has been more complex for us to prepare for reopening than it may have been for businesses with fewer offerings. Some of these guidelines are still being clarified and altered on a daily basis.
The staff are working hard on taking a careful and measured approach to reopening to ensure patron and staff safety is the highest priority, along with balancing industry requirements, financial responsibilities and community needs.
It does take more than just opening the doors of a large multifaceted facility to get back to business, to reconfigure service delivery and train staff in new ways of working with you, and keeping you safe.
During the closure period, we’ve taken the opportunity to bring forward a number of upgrade and renewal projects to improve your experience when you return to the Centre. Some of these projects will be continuing after we reopen, due to the size of the projects. One major example is a significant upgrade to the 25m and Leisure Pools, in readiness for the new activity play centre.
We do thank you for your understanding and support as we work toward reopening on 13th July. We will continue to update our website and provide you with information over the coming weeks.
* Until there are a further relaxation of restrictions or guidelines are in place to allow the Centre to operate with a greater capacity, the Centre will be prioritising the return of members only in the initial stage of reopening.
