The Parkes Aquatic Centre opened its doors on Saturday and in line with the latest COVID Public Health Order you must check in with the QR code and should be prepared to show proof of your vaccination.
At this stage the only members of the public who can access the aquatic centre are fully vaccinated adults (16 and over); unvaccinated children between the ages of 12 and 16 accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult at all times; and unvaccinated children under the age of 12 must be accompanied at all times by a fully vaccinated parent or guardian.
The Parkes pool will also be closed to the public from Monday to Friday between 1:30 to 3pm for cleaning sanitation in line with COVID-19 Government regulations. Physical distancing measures include restrictions in changerooms and the number of swimmers per lane will be restricted.
“We ask that our community and visitors please respect these restrictions and changes as staff are doing their best to keep the facility a safe place for everyone to enjoy,” said Parkes Shire Mayor Ken Keith.
Registrations for the Learn to Swim Program are now open, and forms are available on Council’s website. Season tickets can be purchased from the Parkes Pool kiosk.
The pools at Peak Hill, Tullamore and Trundle are expected to open on Saturday, 30th October.
