Wingecarribee Shire Council is set to reopen Mittagong Swimming Centre on Saturday 10 October 2020 in line with the NSW Government’s staged easing of COVID-19 restrictions.

Bowral Swimming Centre will follow suit opening on Saturday 7 November and Bundanoon Swimming Centre will open from Saturday 14 November with measures in place to help keep everyone safe and healthy.

The Moss Vale War Memorial Aquatic Centre remains open year-round.

Council’s Supervisor Pools and Facilities, Laura Hill, said this year’s swim season has come with a unique set of challenges with all pools operating under a COVID Safe Plan.

“As a COVID Safe business, casual visitors will be required to sign in using the QR code or leave their contact details with staff,” she said.

“We’ll also have COVID marshals on hand during peak times and are encouraging cashless payment, where possible.”

Operating hours for the Mittagong Swimming Centre will be from 6am to 9am weekdays and again from 2pm to 6pm in the afternoon.  On Saturdays the pool will open at 8.30am and close at 6pm while on Sunday the gates will open from 9.30am and close at 6pm.

“We remind everyone of the importance of practicing good hygiene, maintaining proper social distancing and staying home if feeling unwell,” added Ms Hill.

The Mittagong Swimming Centre is located on Hawkins Drive in Mittagong.
