Gym Access will be restored from 6:00pm on Friday 29th October 2021

The Victorian government has announced changes to the road map from Friday October 29, as the state will reach its 80 per cent double dose vaccination target almost a week ahead of schedule.

From 6pm Friday, most indoor settings, including restaurants, pubs, gyms and hairdressers will be open, subject to a one person per 4sqm limit as long as staff and patrons are fully vaccinated.

Social Distancing

Restrictions under Phase C of the national plan

Victoria’s roadmap to Deliver the National Plan sets out how we can safely reopen, while also supporting our health system to ensure Victorians can still get the healthcare they need, when they need it most. See below for the main points gym patrons need to be across when attending

Vaccination Status

From Friday the 29th we are required to comply with the Public Health Order that mandates only vaccinated members or members with a medical exemption can attend indoor settings, including gyms.

We care about each and everyone of our members, regardless of their choice on this issue and we truly cannot wait to welcome every single member back when they are allowed.

We would kindly ask you to provide your vaccination status either by emailing a copy to your respective club:

  • richmond@dukesgym.com.au
  • abbotsford@dukesgym.com.au

or by showing it to our team on your next visit to the club during staffed hours.

Hygiene Practices are here to stay

Washing hands before and after a workout, sanitising equipment after use, using sweat towels to cover the machine you’re using – you know the drill. All these requirements are here to stay.

Masks are still required indoors

Anyone 12 years and over must wear a fitted face mask whenever they leave their home, indoors or outdoors, unless lawful exception applies.

You do not need to wear a face mask when exercising if you are out of breath or puffing. You must carry a face mask with you at all times unless you have a lawful reason not to.

Social Distancing

From 6pm Friday 29-10-21, most indoor settings, including gyms will be open, subject to a one person per 4sqm limit as long as staff and patrons are fully vaccinated. We are luckly enough to have huge facilities so we don’t anticipate this being a limiting factor for any members. If a booking system is required we’ll be sure to let you know.
