The City has worked to provide the community with safe recreational options gradually reintroducing activities and facilities while looking at best practices and guidelines from other cities, WorkSafeBC, Fraser Health and the Provincial Health Officer, the British Columbia Recreation and Parks Association (BCRPA), and other recreation organizations.
Staff will closely monitor the transition to Stage 3 to ensure activities can be expanded or contracted as necessary based on demand and public safety.
Each site has a safety plan including:
- Training of staff;
- Use of appointments and registration to ensure physical distancing;
- Physical alterations to ensure distancing, such as Plexiglas barriers, signs and floor markings;
- Changes to practices and programs to reduce touchpoints and ensure distancing;
- Limiting group sizes and adjusting locations as necessary; and
- Enhanced cleaning of touchpoints.
The City’s plans are flexible – they may be scaled back or modified to protect public health, or they may be gradually expanded based on safety and demand.
