During the last few weeks, the sport community has risen to the challenge posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions on gatherings and activities. From online training to video workouts, many of you are finding ways to continue to stay in touch while staying safe.
With warm weather upon us, it’s a good time to review the provincial restrictions and guidelines currently in place to ensure we continue to follow the rules and advice of public health officials.
Public Health Orders
A Public Health Order is in effect requiring all “non-essential” businesses to close their public-facing services. It also limits the size of public gatherings to fewer than 10 people in one room, unless two metres of separation between people can be maintained.
On March 23, 2020, the provincial government ordered the closure of all recreational and entertainment facilities including fitness centres, arenas, curling rinks, swimming pools, galleries, theatres, museums and similar facilities.
