The City of Campbell River re-opened access to the Sportsplex weight room and resumed in-person fitness classes after the province announced easing of some COVID-19 restrictions last week.
The Sportsplex weight room reopened Jan. 20, while fitness classes started up again on Monday, Jan. 24. Classes will have limited access and health and safety measures to reduce risk to users.
“We have carefully developed a re-opening strategy that allows our community the opportunity for a safe return to our in-person fitness classes and weight room,” said Meghan Lawley, program supervisor of the City’s Recreation and Culture Department. “People will notice that some previous COVID-19 safety protocols have come back into effect and will be expected to follow procedures established by provincial authorities to help keep our fitness clients and our employees healthy.”
COVID-19 safety protocols, including a proof of vaccination requirement, not attending if sick/symptomatic, maintaining a distance of seven square metres while exercising (about 2.5 by 2.5 metres or eight by eight feet), washing hangs upon entering the building, washing equipment after use, no late entry, and early arrival.
Masks are required while not exercising but are encouraged even when exercising.
