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 indoor 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 out COVID safe plans and making sure your facility is sparking clean and ready for your return.

  • 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 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.

  • 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 nowuntil 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. 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
    It is a requirement to check in on the NSW QR Code. Please show your Green Tick to staff at entry.

  • Mask Wearing
    All members and guests over the age of 13 will be required to wear a mask while in the Centre unless you are swimming or are doing strenuous exercise.

  • Good Hygiene
    Social distancing and hygiene measures must be adhered to when visiting the Centre.

    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

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.
Current Policy
All absences need to be marked 14 days before but no less than 2 hours prior to the lesson. Once you mark yourself absent this can not be changed.To access a make up lesson you must first mark yourself absent.
You are entitled to one make up lesson per calendar month, per booking.
Make up lessons must be booked within 30 days of the marked absence. You will be able to book up a make up 7 days ahead of the class time.
When moving or changing your booking all make ups are reset and any future make ups no longer applicable.

If a make up lesson is missed or not booked in, this lesson will be forfeited. Make up lessons are subject to program availability. We do not guarantee you will be able to book a make up at a time you desire or that a place will be available. Make up lessons are non-refundable and not transferable.
Temporary Policy
Absences can now be marked 8 weeks in advance but no less than 2 hours prior to the lesson. One you mark yourself absent this can not be changed. To access a make up lesson you must first mark yourself absent.
You are entitled to 12 make up lessons per calendar year. This will allow for multiple make ups to take place in the same month.
You will now have 3 months to book your make ups. You will be able to book a make up 2 weeks in advance.

You have the ability to access make ups owing on previous bookings provided they meet the above criteria and your customer account is not in arrears.
This policy remains unchanged.




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.

FRIDAY 13th march 2020

Dear members & patrons, 

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 Moss Vale War Memorial Aquatic 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 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.
 

Staff have also been briefed on updated hygiene practices to minimise the risk to themselves and customers.

In the event of a confirmed case within the facility we will be guided by the Department of Health on our next steps. Please click here for regular updates.

If you come in contact with someone who has recently returned from one of the countries identified and you suspect they may have coronavirus we ask that you do not attend the facility for 14 days.

Yes. 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.
