Aquatic centre reopens


The Noosa Aquatic Centre will reopen from 7am Saturday January 8.

The facility has undergone a thorough clean during a two-day closure arising from confirmed positive COVID-19 cases from two community members who attended the centre.

“We activated our COVID safe plan and as an extra precaution instigated a thorough clean of high traffic areas and a further assessment of the risk,” Acting CEO Larry Sengstock said.

“The health, safety and welfare of the community and staff remains council’s number one priority,” he said.

All programs will resume as normal from Saturday.

The 48 hour closure is a timely reminder that the highly infectious Omicron strain is in the Noosa community.

To protect yourself, your family and the community:

  • Maintain good hygiene measures
  • Wear masks at all indoor spaces
  • Practice social distancing
  • Stay at home if you have any COVID symptoms and self-isolate.
  • Avoid crowded events or venues.
