The safety of you and your family, other customers and our staff is paramount to DGSS.
We are committed to ensuring that we can provide a safe environment at all of our facilities. We will be strictly following all New Zealand Government set guidelines and taking all necessary precautions in order to ensure our commitment to you is met.
We have increased the frequency of our daily cleaning and disinfection schedule of all common surfaces that are touched i.e. door handles, taps, work surfaces etc multiple times per day.
All staff will be re-inducted upon returning to work around Health & Safety procedures as well as given guidance around personal hygiene as recommended by Ministry of Health.
We will be temporarily limiting the equipment used in lessons to noodles and kickboards only and these will sanitised and cleaned between classes. The chlorine in our pool water also acts as a disinfectant.
Chlorine levels are being maintained and testing is carried out every 2-3 hours. We ensure that our water quality is compliant with the New Zealand Pool Water Quality Standards 5826: 2010. We also undergo regular independent checks which is carried out at all of our facilities.
Updated our policy around screening sickness for staff and customers
We will continue to advise customers and staff that if they are sick that they are to stay home, this will be included in our customer emails and also signage displayed at sites.
We will be extra vigilant on screening anyone coming into the facility. Anyone who appears to be visibly sick on site we will be asked to leave the facility. If this applies to someone who is in a lesson they will be removed from the pool and will be issued with a make-up lesson to use once they are fully covered. A Health & Safety Report will be completed if someone appears to be sick and is asked to leave.
