HEALTH UPDATE

THURSDAY 7TH OCTOBER 2021

We are thrilled to announce that after reaching the NSW 70% double vaccination target we are able to reopen our pool and gym facilities this Monday, 11 October!

There is a lot of detailed advice and things to be aware of before Monday, so we’ve put all the details about our reopening below. As we’ve learned, Government advice can change quickly, so visit this page often to make sure you always have the latest advice.

Here is what you need to know so far:

  • We are safe
    We have been hard at work updating our COVID safe plans and making sure your facility is sparkling clean and ready for your return.
  • We are vaccinated
    Every team member you meet will have been double jabbed.
  • Our gym is opening
    We’re operating as per our usual opening hours, with a maximum capacity of 1 person per 4 square metres. Gym floor bookings are not required.
  • Our group fitness and aqua classes are back
    There will be a few less classes initially but this will ramp up as our team is cleared to return to work. Please note there will be a maximum of 20 participants per area or 1 person per 4m2, whichever is less. We expect demand to be high for places, so as a courtesy to fellow members please remember to cancel out of classes if you cannot attend. Bookings will be available in the BlueFit Health Club app from 5pm on Friday, 08 October. Our 1 hour reformer classes will return from 30 October. The first direct debit will be on 06 November.
  • Our outdoor pools are open
    You can visit our outdoor pools for exercise and recreation. Please be aware there may be restricted opening hours due to staff shortages.
  • Our indoor pools are opening
    From Monday our indoor pools will be open for lap swimming and Aqua classes. Please be aware that it takes some time to heat up a swimming pool. The heaters have been firing since the announcement, but it may still feel a little fresh on Monday.
  • Spa / Sauna / Steam facilities are closed
    For now, these facilities will remain closed until we receive further Government advice.
  • Swimming Lessons are coming soon
    Swimming Lessons will resume from next Saturday 16 October. The first swim school direct debit will not be until Friday 22 October. If you need to cancel out of swimming lessons please do so here no later than midnight, 18 October. If we are unable to run your child’s lesson due to staff availability we will reach out to you separately.
  • Creche
    Our Creche remains closed. We anticipate reopening the creche on 25 October.
  • You will need to be fully vaccinated to enter the centre
    This is important. Everyone aged 16 years and over must have had both shots of your COVID-19 vaccine to enter our facilities. Please show proof at entry. This includes both using the facility and accompanying children to swimming lessons.
  • Memberships will be active
    Membership will be reactivated for free from Monday, 11 October.
    We’re not going to recommence membership payments right away. We want you to come back and make sure you feel safe. We also want to give you some time to be ready to return. Your first direct debit will be on Friday, 22 October.
  • You can suspend your membership
    If you’re not fully vaccinated or you don’t feel ready to return you can access a one-time free suspension from now until 01 December 2021. Your membership will then be reactivated on the 1st of December. To take up this suspension please click here no later than midnight, 18 October.
    If you wish to suspend beyond the 1st of December you will need to request a new suspension and it will be subject to our normal suspension terms and conditions.
  • You can cancel out of Swimming Lessons
    If you’re not fully vaccinated and you have a child enrolled in swimming lessons you will need to make arrangements for a fully vaccinated adult to accompany them to their lessons. Alternatively, you can cancel out of classes or make use of make-ups when rules change again in December. Unfortunately, we cannot hold places and therefore we will not be able to guarantee your child a spot in the program when you become vaccinated or when restrictions ease.
    If you need to cancel out of swimming lessons please do so here no later than midnight, 18 October.
  • Checking In – ALL
    It is a requirement to check in on the NSW QR Code. Please show your Green Tick to staff at entry.

  • Good Hygiene
    Social distancing and hygiene measures must be adhered to when visiting the Centre. Remember to always use a towel and wipe down equipment before and after use.
  • Stay home if you are unwell
    If you are unwell; or if you are not permitted to attend under the current health orders, please do not attend.
  • Follow Team Member Advice 
    All members and guests are required to follow the direction of our staff or any law enforcement officer.
  • Be Kind 
    This is a challenging time for all our customers and staff. We kindly request that you are patient with team members and fellow facility users alike as we all adjust to this new normal.

We appreciate that this is a lot to cover. We will update this page with any additional advice as soon as it becomes available. If you have any queries or concerns please contact us at lanecove@bluefit.com.au

Start looking for your swimmers and towels because after 2 years of renovation the 50m outdoor pool is coming to completion and we are ready to celebrate it’s re-opening! Book with the button below to be the first one to dive in!

Lane Cove Council will be throwing a morning ceremony on Saturday, October 3rd from 10am – 12pm with a visit from our special guest, Ian Thorpe! Due to COVID restrictions, this ceremony is by invitation only, however you can then dive into the new outdoor pool from 12:30pm onwards using our booking system below.

To avoid over-crowding we will have a booking system in place for the first three days. From Saturday 3rd October – Monday, 5th October we will allow for 30 people per hour in the pool. To lock in your spot you can click here.

The weekend opening hours are the following:
Saturday: 12:30pm – 8pm
Sunday: 6am – 8pm
Monday: 8am – 6pm (Public Holiday)

The eight-lane, 50-metre pool provides a flexible setup with a state-of-the-art divider allowing the pool to operate in both 25 metre and 50-metre lengths. New change rooms are located underneath the impressive new grandstand along with on-deck showers. A new marshalling area complete with a hearing loop will help provide access to high-quality facilities for competitions and carnivals, with an 800 seat grandstand for those to sit and enjoy the action in the pool.

The pool and grandstand are fitted with the latest sustainability features including energy-efficient lighting, water and energy-saving filters, heaters and pumps while an array of solar panels are fitted to the grandstand and marshalling area roof.

An adult change facility and accessible toilet are located at the pool-deck level and there is a ramp into the pool for wheelchair access. A new artwork adorning the fence reflects the themes of water and movement and acknowledges how the traditional owners of the land – the Cameraygal people – engaged with Lane Cove’s waterways.

So save the date, as you won’t want to miss making a splash this spring in Lane Cove Aquatic Leisure Centre’s latest addition.

Dear members and guests,

Due to restrictions on indoor gatherings, aqua on Saturday and Sunday have been cancelled until further notice.  We will be in touch with an updated timetable.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

 

Spa, Sauna and Steam Room Closures

Our spa, sauna and steam rooms will be closed from close of business tonight 20/03/2020.

We are unable to enforce social distancing in these areas and apologise for any inconveniences caused.

Our swimming pools are still safe, functional and available for use.

WEDNESDAY 18th march 2020

Extension of Visit Pass Expiry:

Dear Patrons,

During these unprecedented times involving coronavirus (COVID-19), we understand that many of you may be choosing to self-isolate and therefore unable to attend the facility.

To help make this time easier for you and ensure your visits don’t go to waste, we have made the decision to extend the visit pass expiry on current passes by one year.

All extensions will automatically be applied to your account.

We look forward to seeing you at the facility soon!

Stay Safe.

TUESDAY 17th march 2020
We believe that swimming is an essential skill for all Australian’s and the government’s decision to keep our schools open is evidence that it is safe to continue with our daily routines, provided we exercise appropriate precautions. This includes:
  • Shower before using the pools
  • Practice cough etiquette (keep away from other people, cover coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing, and clean your hands.)
  • Avoid close contact with anyone with cold or flu-like symptoms.
  • Not attending the facility if you have flu-like symptoms
  • Our facilities will remain open for the foreseeable future and we want to ensure our lessons remain a fun and safe environment for our staff and students.
We understand some families will want to avoid attending temporarily, so we have decided to update our make up policy. We have updated our makeup lesson policy to allow for more makeups in a period and longer notice period on an absence. Further detail can be found below, including login details for the parent portal.

It is important to note that these changes are temporary as the situation seems to be changing daily. 

BlueFit Swimming has safety as it’s first priority and the employment of our thousands of staff close behind. We ask that families chose to process these additional make-up lessons rather than cancel their lessons. Swimming remains an essential skill and the risks remain low.

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 Lane Cove 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.
