FACILITY Re-opening Plan

WE’VE RE-OPENED!!

Our re-opening following easing of the COVID-19 restrictions will occur in phases, timed in sync with the stages of the province’s relaunch strategy.

  • No registration list , but we will begin our re-opening with volunteer supervision to ensure compliance with physical distancing and disinfection requirements, along with spot checks using the camera system. This isn’t because we don’t trust you to comply (on the contrary: we think you’ll do just fine), this is us doing our part to ensure everyone stays safe and that we do don’t end up being ordered to close because of problems.
