As you will know, the COVID 19 Alert Levels changed from midday on the 12th August from Level One to Level Two.

We want to assure our members that we are still open and we are adhering to government guidelines. Our exercise classes will be continuing, with required spacing between attendees. The Open Gym is also continuing, as we have separated the equipment to ensure adequate spacing.

Our staff and volunteers will be wearing masks, and we suggest that members get their own masks, not just for here, but for general use in public places. Advice for mask wearing can be found here: https://covid19.govt.nz/health-and-wellbeing/face-coverings/

We also have a Track and Trace QR code on both of outside entrances. If you have not yet downloaded the app, but do have a smart phone, we highly recommend you do so. It is easy to register to and easy to use, with very clear instructions. Just download from the App Store, Google Play, or whichever app platform your phone uses.

When coming to attend a class or gym session, you simply open the app, choose “Record A Visit” and point the camera at the QR Code. This will register you without having to input it manually. We also recommend you use the app when going out to any public place, where they have QR code available. If they don’t have a QR Code, you can still “Add Manual Entry” so that you and the government can more easily trace people who may have been in contact with someone who has been infected.

At the moment, these are precautionary measures. As the situation changes, we will keep our members updated whenever we have new information.
