HOW WE ARE HELPING TO KEEP YOU COVID SAFE

 

WHAT ARE WE DOING TO KEEP YOU SAFE?

 

Health Mates has a COVID Safety Plan in place and is registered with the NSW Government as a COVID Safe Business. We will also be adhering to the current NSW Public Health Orders.

 

The health and safety of our members and staff is a high priority, so we have implemented the following measures to ensure this:

  • Our team will be ensuring our safety plan and current public health orders are being followed and focus on social distancing, hygiene, cleaning and accurate record keeping for contact tracing purposes.
  • Thorough regular cleaning/sanitation of all equipment and high-touch points by both professional cleaners and staff.
  • No shared equipment unless sanitised between use.
  • Hygiene stations, including alcohol based hand sanitiser, disinfectant wipes and sanitation spray is available at the entry, on the main floor and in our studios.
  • Social distancing and personal hygiene reminder notices throughout the facility.
  • Periodic verbal announcements and additional signage serving as reminders about social distancing and good hygiene practises.
  • Repositioning of equipment where possible and clear floor markings and signage to assist everyone in maintaining 1.5m social distancing.
  • Decommissioning of every second piece of cardio equipment to improve social distancing.
  • Temporary closure of our saunas.
  • We encourage cash free purchases at reception.
  • Allowing additional time between scheduled classes to allow for sanitisation and improved social distancing when entering/exiting the studios.
  • A booking system for classes to ensure we adhere to the maximum numbers and can adjust these promptly should restrictions change.
  • Our air-conditioning system provides suitable ventilation and is under an on-going maintenance contract to ensure its upkeep and effective operation.
  • All staff have undertaken Australian Government Infection Control training.
