Updates and Changes In Our Centre
Our Centre teams have been busy cleaning and preparing for a re-start of programs and re-opening. This means we have taken strict actions to ensure a high standard of environmental cleaning and providing adequate quantities of hand sanitiser or handwashing facilities in prominent places.
In addition, you will find some big changes in our centre when we reopen. These changes have been put in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our members and staff.
The safety of our staff & patrons is our highest priority. Please follow the social distancing markers around the Centre, ensuring you adhere to the distancing guidelines of 1.5m between the next person.
We have implemented signage for guidance around effective social distancing in all areas.
We are operating as a cashless Centre with EFTPOS available for all transactions. We will be accepting card payments only to help prevent the spread of coronavirus, as the World Health Organisation warns the virus can be transmitted to customers via banknotes and coins. Going cashless also leads to faster service. As we re-open, this measure helps us ensure better customer service for you.
We’ve missed you and are excited about the great work Australians have done, to help us open sooner and connect with you again.
We appreciate your patience and continued support and look forward to seeing you very soon.
The team at Prince Alfred Park Pool
