After being closed for almost six weeks, the South West Sports Centre and Bunbury Public Libraries will reopen on Monday, with a few changes to operations and extra safety measures in place.

While the gym will remain closed, group fitness classes will be back on schedule following social distancing guidelines and aquatic facilities are also set to open once the WA Department of Health has approved water samples.

City staff will make contact with swimming clubs this week, but the swim school program will remain on pause.

The stadium, creche, café, meeting rooms, spa, sauna and steam room will all remain closed and membership fees will be on hold, with those wishing to use the pool or attend a group fitness class paying casual fees.
