The Regional District of Central Kootenay said by order and direction of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO), new restrictions have been implemented across the Province of British Columbia for adult athletic activities.
The result, effective March 29, 2021 at 11:59 pm all indoor adult group recreation classes at Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) facilities are paused until April 20, 2021. Structured child and youth programs and sports will be permitted.
“The RDCK and all our recreation partners will abide by all Provincial Health Orders and recommendations as the safety of our staff and the public will always be paramount,” said Joe Chirico, General Manager of Community Services.
“We will do our best to communicate with all our user groups to ensure everyone is updated with the most current information.”
The RDCK said all classes will resume following the three week pause and any missed classes will be made up where possible. If classes cannot be made up, users will receive a pro-rated refund.
Both high intensity group exercise and low intensity group exercise are included in the order. Reserved activities are permitted to continue at RDCK facilities, including swimming, individual fitness and indoor walking.
