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 Council
will be adjusting current restrictions from
19 June to reflect the easing of restriction changes as follows:
Capacity must not exceed one person per 4 square metres including staff members.
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).
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.
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 will remain closed at this time. Disposable cups will be available.
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 use the kitchenette facilities which remain closed at this time
Not attend if you are unwell
