COVID Safe Operations at Waves

To keep our Kingston Active Community Safe, the following measures are currently in place at Waves Leisure Centre. We have been actively working with Council to ensure we have the right processes in place to protect your safety. 


Updated Monday 22 November 2021


Check-In and Vaccination Status 

  • Please ensure if you are feeling unwell, you stay at home. If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days, please do not visit the centre until cleared to do so. 
  • All visitors over 12 Years and 2 Months or older must check in and show proof of vaccination, unless a valid exemption is supplied. 
    Providing this evidence can be in the form of a digital wallet on a mobile device, via the Victoria Services or Medicare Apps or via hard copy. Our friendly concierge staff will be available upon entry to assist and check this. 

  • Anyone with an aqua class booking must present to reception to collect their wristband
  • Patrons using the spa/sauna/steam room must get a wristband from customer service and adhere to the patron limits outlined in these areas.


Cleaning and Sanitisation

As restrictions continue to ease, workplaces are required to have a COVID-Safe Plan, which outlines the key actions that are in place to mitgate the introduction and potential impacts of coronavirus (COVID-19). One of the key areas that must be addressed is the environmental cleaning.

Following the state government's cleaning guidelines, we have incorporated a number of measures to ensure we are doing all we can to provide a clean and safe facility. 

  • Rostered cleaners throughout the day, sanitising regular touch points throughout the centre
  • Contracted cleaners thouroughly cleaning the centre each evening. 
  • Purchase of sanitisation stations throughout the centre
  • Purchase of sanitising wipes at health and fitness stations
  • Limited shared use of equipment with regular sanitisation processes in place


Health and Fitness

Our operating hours for the gym are as follows: 

Monday to Friday 6am-9pm and Saturday/ Sunday 7am-4pm

  • Our gym team will be conduting regular cleaning of spaces and equipment, however to ensure we provide a safe and clean environment for all, please ensure you wipe down equipment immediately after use with sanitisation wipes provided. 
  • Please bring a towel to all sessions. No towel- no workout policy in place.
  • BYO exercise mat to all classes or gym sessions which require use of a mat. 
  • Aqua and Deep Water Running classes require pre-booking (74hrs in advance). Please ensure if you are unable to attend your booked session, you cancel online or call the centre, to allow the opportunity for another participant to attend. 


Patron Behaviour and Ettiquette

Patrons must always follow the directions of staff and entry requirements whilst visiting the centre. 


Capacity allowances

Waves is now operating as 'COVID-Normal' with no capacity restrictions in place. 


Learn to Swim

Learn to swim students aged 12 years and 2 months must now meet the vaccination requirements to be able to continue in their current swim lessons. If your child will not be continuing lessons as a result of this change to vaccination requirements, a cancellation can be requested by completing a cancellation form.

Alternatively, if you would like to ensure your class is held for you until your child meets the vaccination requirements, your place can be held until the end of term 4 ( Dec 19 ), providing a credit application form is completely, indicating the expected date your child will meet the vaccination requirements and can return to lessons.
