East Riding Leisure is reminding its members and customers that it is to reopen most of its Leisure Centres on Saturday, 25 July.
East Riding Leisure Hornsea will not be reopening on that date, however, as redevelopment works continue on the site. East Riding Leisure South Cave will reopen on Monday, 27 July.
Customers will find many differences when they return, in order to protect their health and wellbeing, and that of the staff.
In the first phase of reopening, the Centres will offer gym, casual swimming (where appropriate) and classes only, and these will have to be pre-booked. East Riding Leisure South Holderness will reopen its swimming pool only at this stage.
All centres will initially have reduced opening hours, to allow for cleaning and sanitising at the start and end of each day.
Social distancing measures mean that the capacity of all the Centres will be reduced. All Leisure Centres will operate on a cashless basis only, and there will be no catering facilities initially. There will be limited numbers of vending machines available.
All activities will be separated, to ensure adequate time for cleaning between classes and other activities.
Customers will need to pay in advance for all activities, and bookings will be either online or by telephone. East Riding Leisure members will be able to book up to 48 hours in advance; casual customers will be able to book up to 24 hours in advance. Customers will have to confirm that they are free of symptoms when they book, and should arrive on time for their activities, but NOT significantly early.
All customers will need to join a socially distanced queue at Reception on arrival, where screens have been erected, and will be asked to sanitise their hands. They will have to scan their membership cards, or provide proof of payment for their activity.
The following rules will apply for specific activities :
Councillor Shaun Horton, portfolio holder for tourism, culture and leisure, said: "The safe, phased reopening of our Leisure Centres is great news for the health and wellbeing of our residents. During the closure period, we carried out an extensive survey of what our customers wanted to see after reopening, and I am delighted that we have been able to implement many of the ideas raised.
"The safety of our customers and staff is paramount, and I look forward to the welcome reopening of this vital sector."
