The newly formed QAIA, Queensland Aquatic Industry Alliance (which includes ALFAQ) has successfully completed discussions with the Queensland Government to create an Industry COVID Safe Work Plan.

Under this plan, Aquatic Centres may open with significantly improved operating arrangements provided they:

1. Complete the “Swimming Pool & Aquatic Centre Industry COVIDSafe Plan” and implement all relevant measures and keep the completed plan available on site.

2. Display the “Statement of Compliance”.

3. This should be read in conjunction with the Queensland Health requirements for Swimming Pools & Aquatic Centres.

The above websites will be updated shortly with all relevant documents.

Please note, if you do not wish to follow this process you may still open, but with significantly more restrictions, as per the above websites.

ALFAQ expressly thanks the other members of the Alliance – ASCTA, ASSA, Brisbane City Council, RLSQ, Swimming Queensland and Venue Operators – and especially Reece Rackley (ASSA and City Venue Management) for his leadership of the QAIA. “It’s been wonderful for the industry to pull together as a whole, with the sole purpose of restarting our industry, getting people back into jobs, getting people back in the water and improving the lives of literally thousands of people”, said Reece Rackley. We’d also like to acknowledge the efforts of Trish Woolley, Deputy Director-General, DPHW and Chad Anderson, Executive Director, Policy, Programs and Partnerships (DPHW Sport & Recreation).
