29/7/20 – COVID-19 UPDATE
NSW gyms must be staffed at all times
“With community transmission clusters of COVID-19 on the rise in New South Wales, the NSW Premier has announced all gyms, including 24/7 facilities, must register their COVID Safety Plan and have a dedicated Hygiene Marshall on duty at all times during operational hours from 12.01am on Saturday 1 August.”
Members who have a 24 hour access fob will be unable to use it to train in unstaffed hours from this time. We have revised our opening hours while this restriction is in place.
YES! WE ARE OPEN.
After being closed for 12 weeks due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are excited to be back open.
To keep you safe, we are closely following regulations and guidelines for the fitness industry and have a COVID Safety Plan in place. This plan has been designed in accordance with requirements by NSW Government and Fitness Australia Framework of Operations for Fitness Facilities.
The key recommendations by public health authorities to control the transmission of the coronavirus are:
- Physical distancing
- Practice good hand hygiene, clean and disinfect your environment
- Stay at home if you are unwell and have any symptoms of the virus
- Contact tracing
All of the team at NRG have completed the Australian Government online COVID-19 infection control training module.
We will continue to keep you updated on any changes at NRG as restrictions are eased further.
