Macksville's 50m outdoor pool is open for lap-swimmers

Nambucca Heads Aquatic Centre is another business forced to close its doors as a result of the NSW Government corona virus shutdown.

Owner Leigh Eastwood said she and her staff would just have to wait it out.

"Of course we needed to close to stop the spread ... if everyone does the right thing, then hopefully this will be over sooner rather than later," Leigh said.

"We will have to see what we are entitled to from the stimulus package to help us pay the bills. We've put solar on so that helps a bit.

"We've only been open a little over two years and in that time we've added a gym ... we've had to close that too."

"We will try and keep our part-time staff on and keep them occupied with some painting and other jobs - at least then we can feel we've achieved something."

She said the messages of support from the community had been really lovely: "It makes us feel valued and wanted."

The situation is similar at the Macksville Memorial Aquatic Centre with the indoor pool and gym both closed, however the outdoor 50m pool remains open at the moment for people wanting to swim laps.

All group programs such as Lear-to-Swim, group fitness classes and squad training have been cancelled for now.
