  • If you are showing symptoms or are feeling unwell
  • If you have travelled outside of Canada in the past 14 days

Masks and face coverings

At our Athletic Parks, masks must be worn:

  • In washrooms
  • If you’re coaching and/or providing instruction
  • If participants and trainers/coaches cannot consistently maintain 2 metres physical distance outdoors
  • Light intensity activity
  • Whenever you are not engaged in intense physical activities

According to the current Alberta Health restrictions, if you cannot wear a mask (e.g. medical reasons) then you must not participate.

Masks should not be worn during intense physical activities.

How we’re keeping you safe

  • Making sure our facilities align with provincial guidelines
  • Posting signage to indicate foot traffic flow and/or areas that are closed to the public 
  • Cleaning and disinfecting high touch areas (e.g. doors, counters, railings)
  • Providing access to hand sanitizer and hand wash stations
  • Having staff maintain physical distancing and wear face coverings
  • Restricting access through a booking and appointment-only reservation system
