Mount Helena Aquatic Centre Closed
Following the advice of the WA Department of Health, Shire of Mundaring is introducing changes to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
We anticipate that there will be some constraints to service delivery as a result of COVID-19, particularly where we cannot safely implement hygiene or social distancing measures e.g. due to a lack of space.
Where this includes services run for, or by, vulnerable people we are considering service delivery changes on a case by case basis to ensure that we can offer the safest possible environment for our visitors, community and staff.
We cannot promise business as usual but we will be doing our best in what is an evolving situation.
Affected services/ facilities will be added to the Shire website.
Changes will be in place until the end of April and will be extended as required.
