Double vaccination status required for community sport at HILAC

23 November 2021

Patrons over the age of 12 attending the Hamilton Indoor Leisure and Aquatic Centre (HILAC) for community sport will now be required to show proof of double vaccination upon entry. This decision is an extension on restrictions already in place that currently applies to the gym, aquatic centre and courts.

Southern Grampians Shire Council Interim CEO Tony Doyle said the decision to extend the vaccination status to include community sport at HILAC has been made after careful consideration.

“In light of recent community cases increasing within the Southern Grampians and following community feedback from HILAC users, Council has made the decision to require all patrons attending our HILAC facility for the specific purpose of community sport, to now be double vaccinated to enter,” said Mr Doyle.

“This decision has not been taken lightly but has been put in place to protect not only our patrons and staff but the wider Southern Grampians community.

“Currently the double vaccination requirement is already in place for the Library, Cinema, Gallery and PAC so this change will align HILAC with these services and will help to eliminate any confusion and community uncertainty regarding entry requirements at HILAC.

“Please ensure when you visit Council facilities or any of our great local businesses to check-in upon entry, keep up best hygiene practices, and importantly if you have any symptoms or have attended an exposure site, get tested and isolate immediately and follow appropriate health advice,” concluded Mr Doyle.

These restrictions will apply to all patrons over the age of 12 and two months (valid exemptions will be accepted) and is place effective from tomorrow Wednesday 24 November 2021.
