Today marks Stage 2 of the 3 stage roadmap introduced by the Northern Territory Government on 30th April, for the reduction of the ongoing restrictions put in place to reduce the risk of Covid-19 spreading. Stage 2 of the Roadmap now allows the public activities such as the serving and consumption of food/beverages in restaurants, cafes and Bars. Beauty therapy salons are reopening for (non-facial) services, such as nails, massages & tanning. Indoor physical training gyms are also permitted to operate for activities such as Yoga,Pilates,CrossFit, etc.
Several of our Body Corporates have had restrictions in place for their own gyms and pools, with some facilities closed entirely to help fight the spread and reduce the risk to residents of the complex.
With stage 2 active as of 12:00PM today, our Body Corporates have begun the process of reopening their common facilities. Our members will notice when heading home tonight that their respective properties gym or pool has opened up for use. With that, we just request our members respect and maintain physical distancing requirements from one another. Try to limits the number of people in your lifts to 2 people or groups from one household at a time. The lifts in most complexes are quite small and only provide enough space for physical distancing between 2 people.
While we can imagine the majority of the Darwin & NT populations are glad to be returning to the “new normal”, there are still several responsibilities of the public to ensure Stage 2 commences in as safe a manner as possible. We must remember to maintain Physical Distancing, keeping 1.5 Meters of space between you and others not known to you. Try to limit your face-to-face contact with other people to 15 minutes. We should also keep on top of our Hygiene as well, avoiding touching you face, sneezing/coughing into tissues and washing your hands regularly. All of the above steps will help maintain a safe environment for everyone to enjoy.
