Important update regarding Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Opening Restrictions and Limitations

In line with the next phase of Government COVID-19 restrictions easing, Community Centres and Halls managed by Coffs Harbour City Councilwill be adjusting current restrictions from 19 June to reflect the easing of restriction changes as follows:

  1. Capacity must not exceed one person per 4 square metres including staff members.

  2. Classes or organised events must not have more than 20 participants (not including the persons conducting or assisting in the conduct of the class or event, or parents, guardians and carers of participants).

  3. Premises must have a COVID-19 Safety Plan.

We anticipate these restrictions will soon be eased further and we'll keep you informed of any changes as they are confirmed.

The safety and wellbeing of customers, staff and volunteers remains our top priority and we want to assure you we have put measures in place accordingly.

Hygiene Measures

At this time and into the future, the following hygiene and safety measures will continue inside Council’s Community Centres and Halls:

  • Social distancing rules to be followed

  • Perspex sneeze guards installed at customer service points

  • Hand sanitiser stations made available

  • Signage displayed with COVID-19 safety messages

  • Kitchen facilities are open. Please ensure you comply with room capacity restrictions. Disposable cups will be provided.

  • We ask that people please stay home if they are feeling at all unwell

All hirers are to apply social distancing and hygiene practices. As a number of our Community Centres and Halls are managed by volunteer committees and used by multiple groups, hirers of the facilities will be required to:

  • Make available hand hygiene, waste receptacle and cleaning products

  • Wipe clean all surfaces to be used including chairs and tables prior to use

  • Maintain an attendance and contact register

  • Adhere to 1.5m social distancing

  • Adhere to space restrictions of one person per 4 square metres

  • Adhere to floor markings

  • Use hand sanitiser upon entry and maintain hygiene practices

  • Not attend if you are unwell

We also recommend you download the COVIDSafe app.

Community Centre and Hall Bookings

All bookings must be confirmed with the relevant Booking Officer for the venue. Online bookings for the Cavanbah Centre and Village Rooms remains unavailable and we ask you please contact the Coffs Harbour Community Village reception (details below).

We have developed a Return to Council Managed Facilities Checklist to assist you with planning your return. You'll also be required to submit to the Booking Officer a COVID-19 Risk Assessment for your activity, which forms part of the hire agreement documentation they will provide to you at the time of booking.
