MidCoast Council is preparing to open unstaffed pools from 15 December (or when the State reaches the 95 per cent vaccination rate) in line with expected changes to the Public Health Order as outlined in the current NSW Government Roadmap.
The pools are ready to open and welcome swimmers as soon as the current NSW Government Roadmap comes into force, Council’s Director of Liveable Communities, Paul De Szell said.
“We have been unable to open pools at Nabiac, Stroud, Krambach, Bulahdelah and Tea Gardens to the general community as we haven’t been able to meet the current requirements.”
The pools have been available to local swim clubs, subject to them holding their own COVID-19 safety plans and insurance.
However, come 15 December or the 95 per cent vaccination rate, it is expected the Nabiac, Stroud, Krambach and Bulahdelah pools can open to the general community, as QR code check-in will no longer be required based on the current NSW Government Roadmap.
The Tea Gardens pool will open on 1 December under YMCA management.
“We are very pleased to be able to open all our pools to the community from 15 December, in time for the holiday period,” Mr De Szell said.
