The RALC to reopen from 22 June

Published on 16 June 2020

The Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre (RALC) will reopen for lap swimming and squad training from Monday 22 June following the easing of coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions by the NSW Government.

The RALC will strictly adhere to physical distancing measures to ensure everyone’s health and safety.

Between 22 June and 30 June, a maximum of three swimmers per lane will be allowed at any one time, with all patrons required to maintain physical distancing of 1.5 metres from others. 

All members of the public will be required to sign in with their name and contact phone number or email upon arrival. In addition, each patron will be asked to sanitise their hands at the sanitisation stations prior to approaching the reception desk or member’s turnstile. 

Operating hours will be as per normal. Normal entry fees apply, with the preferred payment method by card. 

Patrons who have a multi-visit card or membership card will have the term of their card extended to match the period of closure from when the RALC was closed on 23 March. 

Change facilities will be operational, but have limited access. 

The kiosk will operate during limited hours, with a maximum of 16 people allowed to sit in the kiosk at a time.

At the conclusion of a visit, patrons must leave the RALC immediately. 

From 1 July, the RALC will operate applying the four square metre rule, while maintaining physical distancing requirements, which is in line with further easing of COVID-19 restrictions. 

Anyone who feels unwell or has symptoms including coughing, fever, sore throat or a runny nose is asked not to attend the RALC. RALC staff will refuse entry to any patrons that present with such symptoms.
