The Australian Government last night (Tuesday 24 March 2020) announced extensions to the closure of all non-essential services in a bid to halt the further spread of Covid-19 (Coronavirus), including swimming pools and limiting the number of people gathering in outdoor spaces.
From close of business on Wednesday 25 March 2020, Wodonga WAVES, Albury Swim Centre and Lavington Swim Centre will close for the 2019-20 summer season.
While there are no known visits by a Covid-19 carrier to any of these facilities, this precautionary action has been taken to support the Government’s effort to protect the health and safety of our country, and to minimise the impact on our health care system in the wake of this crisis.
Ben Tudhope, Business Development Manager said that Aligned Leisure were fully supportive of the Government’s decision and were hopeful it would be a positive step towards slowing the spread of the virus across the Country.
“The health and safety of our people, both staff and customers has always been our number one priority. We understand that there will be an impact felt by many from these closures, however believe this is the right decision to protect our community based on current advice.” said Mr Tudhope.
“We are currently working to contact all of our valued members and guests to ensure that they are kept fully informed as further advice is received and look forward to welcoming everyone back at the earliest available opportunity.”
Planning now commences in preparation for the 2020-21 summer season.
