The City of Vernon lifts some recreational services restrictions

City reopens fitness gym

The City of Vernon eases recreational services restrictions following the amended Provincial Health Order.

The Fitness Gym will reopen Thursday at 6 a.m. to patrons with the following COVID-19 provisions:

  • Proof of double vaccination. Your BC Vaccine Passport QR Code must be provided to staff upon arrival. Government issued photo ID is also required for those aged 19+
  • Masks must be worn at all times when moving between equipment. Masks may be removed to actively exercise, but are strongly encouraged at all times.
  • All times must be pre-booked up to 48 hours in advance, through online registration by calling the recreation centre during business hours.
  • Physical distance requirements limit the capacity of the fitness gym to 50 per cent, which is five people per time slot.
  • Participants are asked to come dressed and ready to participate to limit the number of people in the changerooms.

Recreation Services will return to one-way directional flow through the changeroom in the aquatic centre.

Patrons will access the main changerooms on their way in for their swim, bring their belongings on deck and place them in the provided cubbies, and then access the club changerooms at the end of their swim.

The city requests all patrons to limit their time in the changerooms.

Changeroom lockers will not be available at this time.

In accordance with the amended Provincial Health Order, group exercise and fitness classes may resume.

More information and updates on class start times and availability can be found on the city’s website.
