COVID-19: Health and Safety at BridgeClimb
COVID-SAFETY UPDATE 8 October 2021
In line with the NSW Government's roadmap out of lockdown from 11 October, BridgeClimb is excited to be reopening on Friday, 22 October. In accordance with current government health orders, climbs for our initial reopening are available for fully vaccinated guests and those with medical exemptions* (note: children 8-15 years will not need to be vaccinated to visit). As of 1 December, again in-line with health orders, we expect to be able to welcome unvaccinated guests.
Of course, all of our plans and visitation guidelines are subject to NSW Health Orders at the time of reopening and we will continue to review our policy as requirements change.
We are looking forward to a safe return for Sydney and welcoming all climbers back to our beloved Sydney Harbour Bridge. BridgeClimb will continue as always to operate to a safe and high-standard, ensuring our customers have a great BridgeClimb experience.
*medical exemptions should be documented and authorised by a medical practitioner in accordance with the requirements of the NSW Chief Health Officer.
