Our team are here to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all, so please remember to be kind and show understanding as we work to ensure this continues while we adhere to the latest restrictions.
We look forward to seeing you again soon and enjoying a great Summer of fun together this season. With the NSW Government recently releasing its Roadmap for reopening the State, we’ve received new information regarding vaccination requirements for those accessing our NSW locations.
Please be mindful, that while our team do not create the rules, they are required to enforce them, and we thank you in advance for your understanding as we navigate the upcoming changes that will apply at the Albury Swim Centre and Lavington Swim Centre.
In line with the current NSW Public Health Order, we wish to advise that from the Monday after NSW hits the 70% (aged 16 and over) double-dose vaccination target, the following will apply:
- Customers aged 16 years and over must be fully vaccinated
To support our team in safely introducing these changes, opening times at the Lavington Swim Centre will temporarily be modified until further notice as follows:
- Monday to Friday: 6:00am – 10:00am and 3.30pm – 7:00pm
- Saturday: 7:00am – 12:00pm
- Sunday: 9:00am – 1:00pm
Based on NSW’s current vaccination rate, it is highly likely that this requirement will come into effect from this coming Monday 11 October and as such, we are preparing to introduce the change from this date.
Confirmation of the change will be shared via our social media pages and website once known. Further information is also available at: https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/easing-covid-19-restrictions/70-percent
NEW VACCINATION CHECKING PROCESS
From Monday 11 October (unless specified otherwise), all persons aged 16 years or older will be required to provide proof of their vaccination status to gain entry.
To ensure we meet the requirements of the Public Health Order, this must be shown each time you visit and a copy carried with you (either electronically or printed) at all times. Currently we are not permitted to record your vaccination status and as such, you will be asked to show proof each time you visit; however we are continuing to work with the Government to improve this process.
Approved options for proving your vaccination status include:
- Your COVID-19 digital certificate which can be accessed through the Express Plus Medicare mobile app or Medicare online account through myGov.
- A printed version of the COVID-19 digital certificate or immunisation history statement (available through myGov)
- A signed copy of your exemption form
- Further information on how to access your vaccination record is available at: https://www.nsw.gov.au/sites/default/files/2021-10/proof_of_covid_19_vaccination_advice_for_businesses.pdf
In line with Government advice, unvaccinated adults or those who cannot provide proof of their vaccination status will not be permitted entry, and penalties may apply to those who do not comply or who carry a fake form of vaccination proof.
A FINAL MESSAGE TO OUR COMMUNITY
We understand the many challenges faced as a community while we navigate through our restrictions together and wish to thank everyone who has already visited us this season for the understanding and support that has been shown.
