The gymnasium at the Aquarena Aquatic and Leisure Centre has been closed for cleaning after a visitor that had used the gymnasium tested positive to COVID-19.
The operators of Aquarena were contacted by Department of Health and Human Services at 8.20pm on Sunday 5 July 2020 about the confirmed COVID-19 case and the gymnasium was immediately closed for cleaning and disinfecting.
Manningham Council and the centre operators are assisting the Department of Health and Human Services by providing information for contact tracing of visitors to the gymnasium since 29 June 2020.
Manningham Council director of City Services, Rachelle Quattrocchi, said deep cleaning is now underway to thoroughly disinfect all gymnasium equipment within the centre.
“The health and safety of everyone in our community is our top priority. As soon as we were made aware of the confirmed case, the gymnasium was closed for cleaning.
“We are working with the Department of Health and Human Services and will be taking every precaution in line with the centre’s COVID-19 safe work plan before the gym is reopened,” Ms Quattrocchi said.
As well as the gymnasium, Aquarena Aquatic and Leisure Centre includes indoor and outdoor swim facilities. As all access and entrance points for the gymnasium are separated from the pools, the swim facilities remain open to bookings.
