Coinciding with some of Victoria’s hottest days of the year, Ballarat Aquatic and Lifestyle Centre has been forced to close pools due staff shortages and team members isolating after getting COVID tests.
Ballarat’s biggest indoor pool largest was forced to close on Thursday because of staff issues, while the City of Ballarat’s Brown Hill outdoor pool is currently closed until 2nd January and its Black Hill outdoor pool will be closed on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
