The Regional District is following the direction of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) by cancelling all indoor adult group sport and high intensity fitness programs.

Recently the PHO implemented further restrictions across BC for athletic activities.

The RDCK said programs at facilities are cancelled effective immediately until the public health order is lifted.

“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.

The RDCK said structured child and youth programs and sports will be permitted, but must roll back to ViaSport’s Return to Sport Phase 2 guidance.

Sport Phase 2 allows for smaller groups, including limited numbers in dressing rooms, and drills and skills only.

“The conditions are changing on a daily basis and we will do our best to communicate with all our user’s groups to ensure everyone is updated with the most current information,” Chirico said.

The RDCK is encourages the public to reach out to the local recreation facility for questions or concerns about their respective sport and the new regulations being implemented.

The RDCK said activities that will continue at facilities, include swimming, public skating, individual fitness and indoor walking.

The RDCK would like to remind the public that face masks are required in all facilities and are now required during public skating.

It is recommended to bring more than one mask to be able to change as needed.

RDCK recreation services continue to be reviewed regularly as new information and protocols become available. For the most up to date information please go to
