UPDATE on social distancing measures at the DLSA

Dear DLSA Families,

Firstly, let me start by saying thank-you to all the parents and swimmers who have continued to support us throughout this time. We continue to work to ensure we provide and maintain a safe and healthy environment to you and your family, so that you can not only continue your Water Safety journey, but maintain a bit of NORMALITY for you and your children in what is a challenging time. Again, let me assure you that we take yours and your families health and well being very seriously. The initiatives we put in place over a week ago are working very well and an overwhelming number of families have elected to continue with their swimming lessons. Following the government's recent advice, we have added some new initiatives to our original directives to further develop social distancing within our facilities. Firstly let me assure you that - WE DO NOT EVER HAVE MORE THAN 100 PEOPLE IN OUR FACILITIES AT ANY ONE TIME. So as per the government advice, we are open and will continue to provide our program. Furthermore, the Federal Government website states,“Gyms, indoor fitness centres and swimming pools do not need to close at this time — as long as they follow social distancing advice and have good cleaning routines in place". Right now, our team is focussed on maintaining our initial set of initiatives, which are: 1. Sanitising all surfaces and equipment 2. Ensuring our Team comes to work in good health 3. Educating parents to stay away with they or their family is unwell 4. Relaxing your Make-Up policies to better cater for this possibility 5. Rearranging our seating configuration to promote 1.5m distance between parents watching their children during the lesson From today, we have also introduced the following EXTRA social distancing measures:

I truely believe that, given the facts of the situation, together with the advice provided to us by the Government regarding this situation, we are providing a totally safe environment for you, your family and the DLSA Team Members. As always we welcome your feedback questions and concerns. If you would like to contact us, feel free to email us direct at or PM us through social media. In the interest of not causing unnecessary alarm, we respectfully ask you to consider NOT to post alarming statements and/or comments on our social media channels. I together with my Senior Team members are taking this situation very seriously and working to navigate our way through as best we can, while supporting our employees AND providing a safe environment to the hundreds of families who would like to continue their Water Safety journey. Thank-you for your time. Kind regards,

Darren Lange OLY
