“The State Government’s easing of restrictions has allowed Colac Otway to reopen the Bluewater pool this week and the booking system which enables us to limit the number of people and observe physical distancing rules at the facility is working well,” Colac Otway Chief Executive Peter Brown said.

“Colac Otway’s plan forward is to encourage our community to support local businesses as they reopen, and if you do plan to go away this weekend, stay local if you can, visit Apollo Bay and our other small communities with businesses that have missed their busy Easter and traditional visitor trade that they rely on.

“Council will reopen its Customer Services Centres in Colac and Apollo Bay on Tuesday, 9 June, however restrictions will be in place, cashless payments are preferred, and the community is urged to continue using online and telephone services if possible.
“Great Ocean Road Visitor Information Centre services will be open from 9 June, in conjunction with Apollo Bay Customer Service and VicRoads licensing services, which are all provided from the GORVIC building.

“Senior Citizen Centres in Colac and Apollo Bay will start to reopen from 9 June and Corangamite Regional Library Service will also reopen services from 9 June.

“Plans are being finalised for Bluewater to reopen its gymnasium from 22 June, in accordance with government direction, and COPACC is also working towards reopening as restrictions allow and physical distancing requirements can be met.

“Hand sanitising stations and physical distancing requirements will be in place at all facilities as they reopen and anyone with flu symptoms must not enter and should get tested for COVID19,” Mr Brown said.
