The National Sports Centre will reopen on Monday, April 5th, with restrictions in place.
Craig Tyrrell, the NSC’s SVP Operations Manager, said: “To ensure the health and wellbeing of all users of the facility all groups are required to continue to manage their own activities following the guidelines set out by the NSC, your individual organizations and the government’s Return to Sport Policy which is currently in phase 1. It is equally important to note that the government’s gathering size restrictions remains at 10 people.”
“Individual organizations will also be responsible for keeping accurate records of those in attendance on training days in the event the Health Department requires information for contact tracing purposes.”
The following restrictions will be in place:
- People must check in at Gatehouse/Reception booth on their way in.
- People are expected to use hand sanitizer that is located on the reception booth upon arrival and when leaving the facility.
- Masks must be worn when entering and exiting the facility at all times but may be removed when participating in training activity.
- Gym will be closed.
- Physical distancing – people will be expected to adhere to physical distancing when using the facility. Users are asked that when they come to use the facility, they leave immediately after they are finished.
Amy Fox, Aquatics & Fitness Manager, said “The pool will be staying at 25 metres for the foreseeable future to allow for availability of 16 lanes and physical distancing to take place. Members are not required to book lanes in advance for swimming.”
