COVID-19 UPDATE – 8 OCTOBER

From Monday 11 October, we will be opening more services. Please note: under the new Public Health Order only fully vaccinated people can attend our pools and fitness centres.

The following services will be open from Monday 11 October:

  • Fitness centres at Springwood and Katoomba are reopening, with a maximum of 20 to a class, for those who are vaccinated.
  • Indoor pools at Springwood and Katoomba are also reopening from 11 October, but only for Learn to Swim, Lap Swimming and Squads. Indoor pools will not be open to the general public. Those attending aged 16 years and over must be fully vaccinated.
  • Outdoor pools at Glenbrook, Lawson and Blackheath reopened on 27 September (previously open to all, now only for fully vaccinated).

Katoomba outdoor pool is closed for the season for a planned upgrade.

Strict COVID-safe protocols will be in place. When you’re visiting us you must follow the directions of all signage and staff, and please remember:

  • You must be fully vaccinated to attend our pools and fitness centres. This includes the outdoor pools.
  • You must sign in and out using the QR code.
  • You must wear a mask at all times when not swimming.
  • Wash your hands before and after you use any equipment or touch public surfaces. The safest thing to do is assume the person before you has the virus.
  • Please maintain physical distancing and high levels of personal hygiene.

Do not come to the pools if you’re sick, have flu like symptoms, or have had contact with someone who may have contracted COVID-19.
Capacity limits and the 4 square metre rule will be in place.
