The safety of our customers is our top priority.

Last updated: Friday 22 October 2021

In line with Victorian Government health advice, from Friday 22 October, services will only be available for fully vaccinated patrons or those holding a verified medical exemption. Currently, those under 16 years old do not need to be vaccinated to participate.

Proof of vaccination (COVID-19 digital certificate) will be required upon entry. The Victorian State Government is currently conducting trials to determine best practice for providing proof of vaccination or medical exemption. Find out how to get your COVID-19 digital certificate.

We understand that some of you may not be ready to return, which is why we’re offering members a suspension period.

The below COVID-safe information applies to our site to ensure our patrons and staff are kept safe.

Contact tracing at our centre

Our centre is using the Victorian Government Contact Tracing System. Please ensure you are ready to scan the QR Code on site and complete the details to record your visit.

Our centre will comply with any physical distancing or venue density requirements as outlined by the Victorian Government. All spaces within the centre have been measured and density limits per space will be displayed and imposed. In some areas, staff and visitors may be counted as they enter and exit spaces.

Signage and instructions

At our centre, you will see signage and instructions on how everyone can be COVID-safe. Hygiene and density signage will be displayed throughout the facility to help everyone with physical distancing requirements.

Increased hygiene and cleaning

You will notice that hand sanitiser is available throughout the centre with the expectation that everyone (staff and visitors) regularly sanitises their hands.

The entire centre is cleaned regularly and high touch points (such as doors, toilets and gym equipment) will be cleaned at minimum twice a day.

Staff will also be wiping down gym equipment regularly and antibacterial wipes will be available for visitors to use before and after using equipment.

Training for staff

All staff have completed the Department of Health COVID-safe training, as well as additional training provided by YMCA Victoria to ensure they are equipped with the knowledge to keep you safe. We have also provided additional training for specific roles to ensure all programs operate safely with venue density requirements in place.

Venue Density Requirements

In line with current requirements Venue Density limits based off the applicable Government Guidelines of either 1 person to 2m² or 4m² will apply to the Centre. This Density limit will be applied to the Centre as a whole, as well as all individual spaces within the Centre. All spaces within the centre have been measured and density limit per space will be displayed and imposed. In some areas staff and visitors may be counted as they enter and exit spaces.

Please remember that we must all play our part in helping stop the spread of COVID-19. If a visitor does not follow our COVID-safe practices, including Venue Density requirements, they may politely be asked to leave the facility by a staff member.
