Nov 23, 2020   from Columbia Lake Recreation Centre on Facebook

 CLOSED!!!
The Columbia Lake Recreation Centre will be closed for one week to prepare our staff and building for tighter covid-19 restrictions. We also feel closing shows our solidarity to our health care workers who are working tirelessly to help those fighting the illness.
Once we re-open mask use will be mandatory within the building, and strict cohorts will have to be maintained in order to use our facility.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause anyone, and look forward to hosting you when we return to sport.
P.S. All monthly passes will be paused, so you'll still have the same amount of time left on it when we return.


Provincial Restrictions
November 20, 2020

The Provincial Health Officer (PHO) has implemented province-wide restrictions, in effect until December 7, 2020.
The increase in COVID-19 in B.C. is very concerning and we must all do our part to flatten the curve. The verbal PHO Order provides new restrictions on what we can do as individuals and what the role sport can play in keeping ourselves and our communities safe.
The PHO Order recognizes that now more than ever sport provides important physical and mental health benefits to our communities, and as such sport can continue; however, within some new parameters:
• Games, competitions, training and practice, such as those outlined in the viaSport Phase 3 Guidelines, can continue without spectators and restricted to your local community. Until the written Order and public health guidance are released we recommend that you err on the side of caution and stay close to home for now.
• Masks are required in all indoor public settings. We recommend that you err on the side of caution and wear a mask in all indoor public settings, including lockers, change rooms, etc.
• High performance athletes already training in B.C. and identified by CSI-Pacific are excluded from the sport-related restrictions.
Updates will be made as more information becomes available.
