HEALTH UPDATE

SATURDAY 26th JUNE 2021

In line with the directions issued by the NSW State Government, we will be closed from 6pm on Saturday, 26 June, with a view to re-opening on Saturday morning, 08 July 2021.

During the closure, we will be unable to operate our Learn to Swim and Kids Sports programs. For those customers with lessons scheduled during the week, we’ve placed a credit on your account. No action is required on your behalf.

Learn to Swim lesson days and times in the program will remain secure for the reopening of the facility.

All applicable memberships will automatically be suspended for the duration of the lockdown and a credit will be placed on your account for these days if required. Once again, no further action is required. As customer accounts were debited before the announcement these credits will take effect in the next debiting period.

Unfortunately School Holiday Programs will be unable to proceed. Any bookings that you have paid in advance will be refunded.

Any Group Fitness class bookings will not proceed, you may notice that you are removed from those classes during the closure period.

During the closure, you can still enjoy your favourite group fitness class and access plenty of fun activities for the kids to do via our online platform BFit@home. Click here to access our virtual health & fitness site.

Any refunds required will be processed at the conclusion of the lockdown period in the event that the date is extended or brought forward.

We appreciate this is an emerging situation and will provide further updates if required. In the meantime, should you have any specific questions relating to the closure, please email us at hurstville@bluefit.com.au

Stay safe,
Your Hurstville Aquatic Team

FRIDAY 13th march 2020

Dear members & patrons, 

We understand that with so much information relating to the coronavirus (COVID-19)  going around in the media, you may have concerns about how the situation is being managed at Hurstville Aquatic Leisure Centre, as a large public facility.

Please understand that the safety, health and well-being of our customers and staff is always our top priority. Our centre continues to be a public facility and workplace that remains safe to attend. 
At this point we will be remaining open during our regular hours and classes will not be impacted. 
We want you to feel confident when you’re using our facilities. We have and will continue to put in place a number of proactive measures to protect customers and staff well-being:

  • Hand sanitiser available throughout the facility.
  • Thorough cleaning and sanitisation practices throughout the centre
  • Multilingual signage relating to personal hygiene in key areas.

If you are returning from any of the affected countries, you should follow the advice of the Australian Government’s Department of Health as set out on their website.
Regular updates will be placed on this website. 

Latest Update: No staff or customers have been identified as having the virus. The facility remains safe to attend. 

Swimming:

Chlorinated water has a long documented history of preventing the spread of viruses, however it is important to maintain good personal hygiene at all times. This includes:

  • Showering before using the facilities
  • Washing hands after using changing facilities.
Health Club:

We believe that regular exercise is important to maintain a healthy life and support proper immune function. It is therefore important to provide you with a safe and clean training environment. 
In addition adopting a thorough cleaning and sanitising regime within the facility, we also encourage you to:

  • Thoroughly wipe down all gym equipment after use.
  • Always use a towel while training.
  • Practice good hygiene and wash hands frequently.
  • Make use of the available wipes and hand sanitiser.
Outside The Pool:

It’s important that we all practice safe hygiene practices during this time. This includes:

  • Cleaning your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Covering your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with tissue or a flexed elbow
  • Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms.
  • Practice cough etiquette (keep away from other people, cover coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing, and clean your hands.)
Respect Those Around You:

We believe our staff and the communities we service are our family and we hope that everyone continues to behave and treat each other with the respect and dignity they deserve.
