Community services and facilities set to reopen next week
Published Friday, 15th May 2020
The City of Wanneroo aims to reopen some of its community facilities and services from Tuesday 19 May, in line with Phase 2 of the State Government’s ‘COVID-19 Roadmap to Recovery’.
Pending the State Government issuing a new Direction to replace Closure and Restriction (Limit the Spread) Direction (N02), a number of popular facilities and services including Wanneroo Aquamotion (partial), libraries, and the Clarkson and Girrawheen Youth centres are scheduled to reopen with some restrictions in place to ensure user health and safety.
Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said that there's no doubt many members of the community would be pleased to see these services and facilities re-open.
“The City’s priority is the health and well-being of our community and we are implementing the State Government issued COVID-19 Safety Plans for all facilities and services scheduled to reopen,” said Mayor Tracey Roberts.
“City staff are undertaking additional training to ensure the health and safety of patrons and our cleaning regimes are being increased.”
“We are all in this together and it is important that our patrons continue to follow social distancing guidelines, including the four-square metre rule. People who feel unwell or who have been in recent contact with someone who is unwell are asked to remain at home.
“By working together and by adhering to State Government regulations and guidance we can limit the spread of COVID-19.”
Opening hours will vary and patronage limits will apply. Some service offerings, such as the gym at Aquamotion will remain closed, in line with State Government advice.
Please note some services and facilities will remain closed, including Kingsway Indoor Stadium, community centres, playgrounds, BMX tracks, skate parks and the art gallery, museum and the Cockman and Buckingham heritage houses.
