Following a recent update to the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) order on province-wide restrictions on November 23, 2020, direction has been provided by the PHO to temporarily suspend all group fitness activities until new guidance for these activities is developed. This temporary suspension is effective immediately. Participants registered in affected programs will be contacted.
All registered sport activities such as 4-on-4 hockey, pickleball and badminton are permitted to continue operating under viaSport’s Return to Sport Phase 3 guidance. viaSport is currently reviewing the guidance, in consultation with public health, and will be releasing updated guidelines soon.
Individual activity reservations including public skating, pool and fitness room reservations are permitted to operate under the current PHO province-wide restrictions.
A reminder to all patrons that non-medical, cloth masks are now required when visiting recreation facilities.
The Recreation Department continues to diligently monitor all PHO restrictions and sector guidelines to ensure that our COVID-19 safety plans are in compliance with orders and best practices.
