Level 2 Restrictions

As announced by the State Government we will go into Level 2 Restrictions from Thursday, 3 March 2022. This will impact all patrons accessing the Leschenault Leisure Centre.

The new restrictions are:

We ask you to adopt a "get in, train or play, and leave" approach to keep our centre as safe as possible.

We appreciate your cooperation as we navigate these changes and ask that you listen to staff instructions.

UPDATE: Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination at Leschenault Leisure Centre

On Saturday, 29 January 2022, the WA Government updated its formal proof of vaccination requirements for swimming pools and community sport. 

Consequently, the Shire of Harvey is changing its entry requirements to the Leschenault Leisure Centre (LLC) which are now different to what we communicated to our community on Friday, 28 January 2022. 


These Directions were updated on Saturday and can be viewed on the WA Government website

 

Summary of reviewed directions impacting the Shire’s recreation centres: 

  • As of 31 January 2022 only those patrons accessing the gymnasium and dry group fitness classes will be required to show proof of vaccination upon entry.

  • It is understood that community sport within indoor venues is exempt from the proof of vaccination mandate. These directions were updated on Saturday, 29 January and therefore replace any previous mandates within these areas.

 

Customers to LLC will need to show proof of vaccination upon entry to the following;

  • Gymnasium and group fitness studios.

  • Member entry will be deactivated on member fobs and reactivated once members have displayed their proof of vaccination to LLC staff. This will mean you will only have to show your proof of vaccination once, or until government directions change requiring further proof.

 

The Shire of Harvey is responsible for adhering to all Government Mandates on COVID-19. We ask all of our community to be patient with our staff who are working to implement these as quickly and effectively as possible.

To follow all WA Government directives and public health advice, all patrons over the age of 16 that wish to enter the Leschenault Leisure Centre will be required to show proof of vaccination or a medical exemption each time they visit the Centre from Monday, 31 January 2022.

Providing Proof of Vaccination

You can provide proof of vaccination by using the ServiceWA app or Express Plus Medicare mobile app.

What to do if I have received my first vaccination and are waiting for my second vaccine?

Members who have received their first vaccination and are waiting for their second vaccine may apply for an extension of suspension by emailing llc.admin@harvey.wa.gov.au before 28 February 2022.

 

What do I do if I do not want to show my vaccination status?

We understand some members of our community have made the choice to not share their vaccination status. •    Unfortunately these members will not have access to the LLC Gymnasium or Group Fit classes.. If you can no longer use your membership due to your vaccination status you can choose to cancel your membership.

 

If you choose to cancel your membership, you may do so by informing us in writing before the 28 February 2022 so that we can process your pro rata refund (upfront paid memberships) or cancel your direct debit membership payments. For membership cancellations, please email llc.memberships@harvey.wa.gov.au.

 

While the Centre is open for business, and we are able to provide our member services, our current terms and conditions remain in effect.

 

Please note:

  • Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a responsible guardian over the age of 16.

  • The steam room will remain closed with relation to mask wearing and health risks.
