Outdoor pools set to reopen from 27 September

Community swimming pools are set to reopen on Monday, 27 September following the NSW Government’s approval. The reopening of all outdoor public swimming pools will be subject to having COVIDSafe plans approved by NSW Health.

All pools at Richmond Swimming Centre and the outdoor pool at Hawkesbury Oasis Aquatic and Leisure Centre will be open, see hours below. QR codes will be in place. The Mayor of Hawkesbury, Councillor Patrick Conolly has welcomed the move to open the pools to Hawkesbury residents.

“It’s great news that our community members will be able to come along to our pools again,” Mayor Conolly said.

“Our pools provide important services to our community for sport and recreation, health and mental wellbeing, water safety, swimming training, and local employment. Please remember to check in and out using the QR codes and to be patient and kind with each other and our staff when sharing the facilities.

“Along with the re-opening of our outdoor pools, we are working with the NSW Government to ensure that aquatic venues are provided with clear guidance around re-opening and support during the post lockdown phase.”

Council does not have any further advice from the NSW Government as to when outdoor spaces associated with swimming and fitness clubs will be permitted to be operational. Council is waiting on advice from NSW Health about conditions of entry and, once these are confirmed, updates will be provided to the community. COVID-19 restrictions continue to be updated by the NSW Government. For the latest updates please visit nsw.gov.au/covid-19/rules/greater-sydney

Council continues to follow the recommendations of the Australian and NSW Government in determining the operation of its facilities during the pandemic. Members of the public are encouraged to continue to observe good hygiene practices, practise social distancing and follow the other directives of NSW Health including getting tested and staying home if you have any COVID-19 symptoms or feel unwell, and get vaccinated.
