COVID-19 Precautions in Effect at The Waves Club Caloundra

The first necessary measure we have implemented is to send home any visitors who are clearly feeling unwell and are even mildly symptomatic of fever, running nose, coughing, sneezing, or shortness of breath. While we understand this is not an easy or comfortable temporary policy, we do insist that it is a necessary precaution for all, of which we are thankful of everyone’s cooperation.

Additional Actions in Effect:

  • Encouraging social distancing.
  • Supplying additional hand-sanitiser.
  • Cancelling events, entertainment, and promotions which encourages large audiences.
  • Sending staff home who are exhibiting even mild symptoms of illness.
  • Disinfecting surfaces and frequently touched areas every hour.
