Aura Leisure Centre in Letterkenny has suspended swimming lessons today following a confirmed case of Covid-19 among the staff.
The centre has announced that a member of the swim teaching team has tested positive for the virus.
Three other members of the swim team are now isolating and are awaiting tests.
Open swim and all other gym services at the Aura will go ahead as normal today.
A statement from management confirmed: “We have suspended all swimming lessons that were due to run today (16th Sept). We will make up the lessons at a future date. Anyone deemed a close contact will receive separate communications from Aura and the HSE.
“As per guidance and confirmation from the HSE all other services including our swimming pool at Aura Letterkenny will remain operational.”
Management has assured customers that the team member contracted Covid-19 outside the leisure centre and the issue does not affect the majority of our members and staff: “While this issue does not directly affect the majority of our members and staff we feel it important to be up front, honest and pro-active in communicating all Covid-19 issues to all members and will continue to monitor the situation closely and keep you updated.”
