Keeping you safe

  • The Sydney Opera House is registered as a COVID Safe business with the NSW Government.
  • Get Active at the House has the safety and well-being of participants and instructors foremost in our planning. Patrons must follow NSW Health guidelines and follow COVID safe practices when attending Get Active at the House classes.
  • In addition to signing in via a QR code, prior to your arrival you will need to complete health check questions via Virgin Active's MyLocker booking website before participating in each class.
  • As Government recommendations evolve we will continue to update information about event attendance. 
  • Patrons who reside in or have recently visited any of the identified COVID-19 locations in the past 14 days should follow NSW Health orders and not attend the event. Attending Get Active at the House when you are unwell puts yourself and others at risk. Attending while under quarantine or isolation orders is prohibited, and if you appear to have COVID-19 symptoms you may be denied entry to minimise the risk to others. 
  • With your co-operation, trust and patience, we can make Get Active at the House a safe event for everyone.
