As provided in the Roadmap for reopening, visitors to Council’s indoor facilities must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Unvaccinated children under the age of 16 may only visit if accompanied by a fully vaccinated household member. Vaccination status will be checked on entry to Council facilities to comply with NSW government public health orders and to protect the safety of staff and the community. Visitors are encouraged to be appropriately prepared with proof of vaccination via a certificate on a smartphone or a printed copy of a vaccination or medical exemption certificate. We request visitors’ patience and understanding as we work together to comply with the health orders.
COVID-safe QR check-ins and face masks (except for children under 12) are also required with physical distancing to be maintained at all times and capacity limits enforced in Council facilities.
