What is the Y doing to reduce the risk?

The Y is closely monitoring the situation and adhering to Australian and Queensland Government advice in relation to Novel Coronavirus.

The Y is also following its regular Covid-19 health and safety practices regarding cleaning of equipment, bathrooms and change rooms and our food handling procedures. This includes regular cleaning of equipment and toys. We will also be undertaking additional cleaning and disinfecting of high contact surfaces.

In the instance of a confirmed case at one of our centres, we will need to close for a period to allow QLD Health to assess the situation and to perform contact tracing as required to identify people and students who may have come in contact with the COVID-19 virus.

Specialised cleaning of the facility will take place if necessary before re-opening.
