Central Coast Council has reopened Lake Haven Recreation Centre in accord with the latest easing of COVID-19 restrictions.
The centre reopened on June 13 along with the Gosford Olympic Pool and the Peninsula Leisure Centre, with modified versions of its usual offerings of gym, creche, group fitness and casual basketball/squash all returning.
It comes as council commits to reopening its facilities with a range of new safety measures in place to protect visitors, staff and volunteers including: Increased cleaning regime; hand sanitiser units installed; removal of some seating and other touchable items; access limited to ensure capacity limits are maintained and short waiting periods may be experienced; contact details (name and mobile number or email address) will be recorded for a period of at least 28 days with these records only being used for the purpose of tracing COVID-19 infections if required, they are stored confidentially and securely; attendees must acknowledge that they have not returned from overseas or been in contact with a known COVID-19 case in the past 14 days; and, physical distancing of 1.5m rule to be practised at all times.
Residents of the Coast’s north are also advised that council is planning on reopening Toukley Aquatic Centre on June 22 with a modified offering.
From the 22nd users will be able to use the centre for lap swimming and rehabilitation in limited numbers, with a restart date for the Learn to Swim and Aqua Fitness programs yet to be determined.
Leisure swimming is not permitted.
