Temporary closure and planning for reopening

Last updated 28.05.2020

As a proactive measure to protect community and staff health and safety in relation to coronavirus (COVID-19) all council-owned Active Moreland Aquatic and Leisure Centres have been closed since Wednesday 18 March.  The Victorian Government made an announcement on Sunday 24 May to ease restrictions effective 1 June 2020 and 22 June retrospectively.

Active Moreland facilities remain closed until provisions are in place for re-opening. We are working to ensure the correct measures are in place so that we can re-open safely. This may be on, or after, the dates the State Government has outlined while we adapt our programming to comply with new physical distancing and hygiene practices.

The dates and requirements the State Government has outlined are:

  • From 1 June, swimming pools will be able to open with limits of 20 people and additional safety requirements in place. 
  • Physical distancing and a limit of up to 20 patrons per space will apply, and indoor venues will be required to keep customer contact details.

If community transmission rates continue to remain low and testing rates continue to remain high, the State Government has said they will look to further relax restrictions from 22 June.  From that date, indoor fitness and recreation facilities will be able to open with up to 20 people per space and up to 10 people per group or activity at any one time. However, we reiterate that our opening dates may be on, or after, the dates the State Government has suggested

Memberships remain on automatic suspension effective Wednesday 18 March 2020

We appreciate your understanding and patience at this time and will communicate any news regarding our re-opening plan as soon as we can.

To keep up to date with the latest advice from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).

All Active Moreland centres are closed from Wednesday 18 March until further notice as a result of COVID-19. Memberships will be placed on automatic suspension
