Communal Facility Restrictions Less Burdensome
July 9, 2020
From noon Friday last week, stage 3 of the roadmap to easing restrictions commences with some changes to communal facility management in body corporate complexes. Strata Community Association (SCA) (Qld)’s Guide Return to (the new) Normal, Stage 3 outlines what is important for strata communities to comply with. Non-compliance may result in fines of up to $13,345.
Major Changes from Stage 2 restrictions
- Spaces below 200 square metres can have one person per two square metres, up to 50 persons at a time
- Larger spaces continue to have permission for one person per four square metres, up to a maximum of 100 people in a private, non-commercial gathering
- Gyms may be left unsupervised provided an accurate attendance record is kept. The body corporate must keep contact information about all residents, guests and staff at any communal facility for contact tracing purposes, including name, address and mobile phone number, and the date and time period facilities were used at (to be kept for a period of at least 56 days). If requested, this information must be provided to public health officers. The information should be securely stored, not used for any other purpose and deleted after 56 days.
- Saunas require a COVID Safe Plan
