COVID-19 Protocols

Geelong Learn To Swim complies with all Government and Christian College Geelong COVID guidelines. Lessons that are not provided due to Government restrictions are credited or refunded.

To ensure the health and safety of all, it is compulsory upon entry that you scan the Victorian Government COVID tracing QR code, sanitise hands, and scan your allocated GLTS attendance barcode in the foyer. Once in the pool, please observe social distancing rules, and remain seated during lessons.
