Below are the protocols we have set in place to ensure that the Brighton Recreational Centre is COVID-Safe and the health and safety of our community and staff is protected.
Health precautions and risk mitigation is a high priority. Our health and safety measures include (but are not limited to):
Students, teachers, coaches, staff and parents over the age of 18 must maintain social distancing of 1.5m at all times. Where possible, furniture placement and learning spaces will be modified to support physical distancing.
The Centre will be adhering to the State Government’s current guidelines which permits group classes at community centres to run, provided there is no more than 20 people in each separate space, in addition to those required to operate the facility and density requirements (one person per four square metres) are complied with.
In regards to our school age gymnastics classes, we will be allowing up to 40 students in the gymnasium at the one time. Our gymnasium will be allocated into 2 separate zones with up to 20 people in each space, which is in accordance with the State Government’s guidelines for large indoor venues.
Entry in and out of the Centre will be via the main entrance on Outer Crescent. We ask where possible, that you enter via the stairs and exit via the ramp. Please ensure that you arrive no earlier than 5 minutes prior to the start of your class and leave the Centre immediately after your class has finished.
Parents/carers will not be allowed to enter the premises, unless your class requires parent participation. A ‘drop and go’ approach will be required. Your child’s teacher/coach will meet your child at the main entrance and escort them to their class and return them to the main entrance at the end of their class. It is essential your child and teachers/coaches are aware of their collection point at the end of their class.
Any equipment used throughout the class will be wiped down before and after each use.
There will be no access to Centre change rooms or wet areas for students to change clothes etc. We recommend all students come to the Centre ‘ready to go’. Toilets within the Centre will remain open.
We encourage all students, teachers, coaches, staff and families to download the COVID-Safe App that will help in the tracing of the spread of COVID-19. When you are in the Centre, we ask that you click into the App to ensure that it records your location.
Brighton Recreational Centre has a nominated COVID-Safe officer, Natasha Mandic who will work with the Brighton Recreational Centre Board of Management.
