Planning for the future and making our centres safe for you
Customers will see changes to how we visit the leisure facilities as we reopen. There will be a range of new protocols and codes of conduct to ensure that customers and our staff are protected from the risk of Covid-19. Plans have been developed with the assistance of Health & Safety, Environmental Health and communications colleagues in the authority, consultation over the plans and customer needs wants and desires with Customers, Trade Unions in combination with Welsh National forums and UK forums.
We plan to start small and grow as the rules and guidance change. Sessions will need to be booked and paid online in advance with activity being focussed on Swimming, Gym, Outdoor Sport and Outdoor fitness classes. Many areas will be slower to reopen such as course programmes and children’s activity programmes. We will be increasingly using technology and digital solutions for building checks, accessing services or to deliver online virtual /on-demand classes.
These are exciting times as we gradually reopen and programme activity for you. We rely on our customers to follow social distancing, following the guidance we issue and taking notice of the advice. That way we will be able to provide a clean and safe environment for you as possible allowing you to build the confidence to return to regular exercise.
