Canberrans keen to cool off as summer comes early


Canberrans are being reminded to book ahead if they want to cool off at a public swimming pool.

Hundreds of people flocked to pools across the ACT yesterday, as the mercury climbed to 32 degrees.

Many were denied entry due to COVID-19 capacity limits.

Dickson Aquatic Centre is running four-hour sessions and allowing 30 minutes between swim times for a COVID-safe clean.
