The Government is leading our response to the COVID-19 pandemic and our goal is to ensure we meet their requirements. As we return to onsite operations, it’s essential that we minimise exposure to and transmission of COVID-19 at AUT Millennium. Outlined below are the measures AUT Millennium has adopted to prevent, detect, contain and rapidly respond to COVID-19 related risks.
As a public venue, AUT Millennium must follow the Government’s guidelines in regards to the number of people within each space throughout the precinct to enable adequate social distancing.
The AUT Millennium team are very excited to be back to be able to provide our community activities we know everyone has missed! Please be patient with our team members while we are all learning how to work within the new guidelines – everyone’s health and safety is our priority.
EVERYONE HAS A ROLE TO PLAY
We’re all in this together and there are some general steps you must take to help keep everyone safe:
- Stay at home if you’re feeling at all unwell.
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water and/or hand sanitiser.
- If you need to sneeze or cough, do so into your elbow or tissue (and dispose of it in a bin).
- Maintain the recommended physical distancing.
- Wear a mask ideally whenever you leave your home.
- Sign in and out using either the QR code or manual contact tracing when you enter or leave the facility.
How we are keeping your children safe in our Holiday Programme.
- If your child feels unwell or displays any of the Covid 19 related symptoms, please stay at home. If your child is no longer able to attend please email [email protected]. Credits or refunds will be available for non-attendance.
- If your child becomes unwell during the day, your child will be distanced from the rest of the group with an instructor and parents/emergency contacts will be called and asked to come pick up them up from the programme.
- Hands must be cleaned on entry into the facility. Hand-sanitiser stations are available at every main building entry point and in the Holiday Programme room. Handwashing will be actively encouraged throughout the programme especially after equipment use and prior to meal breaks.
• Parents/Caregivers must follow designated routes in, out and around our facilities. Entry into both buildings will be available only through the main front door/reception only.
- Parents/Caregivers must ensure social distancing of 2m is kept at all times whilst walking through the facility to the Holiday Programme room.
- Where possible during the programme, we will encourage children separation through the placement of resources and activities. The programme will be running with reduced programme numbers and operating in larger rooms to help assist with physical distancing as much as possible.
- Please ensure your contact details including emergency contacts are up to date on Enrolmy.
- Parents/caregivers are required to wear a face mask inside the AUT Millennium facility and maintain physical distancing when dropping and picking up.
- Face masks are not required to be worn for children aged 12 years or younger. Children aged 12 years or older are required to wear a face mask on their way to and from the holiday programme activity space but not during the programme.
- Children are required to bring their own filled drink bottle, food and any utensils required. No food or drink to be shared. Subway lunches will be still available to pre-order in the morning.
- Non-essential visitors will not be allowed inside where the holiday programme is operating.
- Appropriate cleaning supplies are maintained and stored safely out of reach of children, and all surfaces are cleaned and disinfected regularly.
- There will be no offsite trips scheduled for these holidays that require transport by bus.
- Changing rooms used for pool swimming activities will be closed off to public whilst in use by the Holiday Programme.
