YOUTH PROGRAMS - COVID PROCEDURES AND WHAT TO EXPECT

Please take note of the program specific details as listed below:

Parents/Guardians dropping off and picking up their child must do so at the entrance of the centre and designated exit of the program.

The centre is no longer available for drop-in and the lounge remains closed. Please only arrive up to 15 minutes prior to your program otherwise you will be asked to wait outside or return closer to the program start time.

Enhanced cleaning protocols are in place and equipment will be disinfected between programs.

Each program participant will be placed in a designated spot that has been cleaned for their use during the program. Program participants must remain in their designated spot and may not enter any other participant’s spot to maintain social distancing and safety measures.

At the start of each program, the program leader will inform participants of the room flow, entrance, exits and pathways to the bathroom and water fountain to ensure any movement in the program is completed in a safe manner.

There will be no sharing of equipment during programs unless items have been disinfected between uses by the program leader.

Program participants are encouraged to bring pre-filled water bottles to minimize the amount of program movement that may cause disruption to a class for nearby participants trying to maintain a social distance.

Program participants are asked to minimize the items they bring with them as they will be given a bin to store their items during the program. Bins will be disinfected before and after the program.

Participants in programs that take place outdoors should dress weather appropriate. In the event of extreme weather conditions, the program will remain inside.

Participants in programs that take place outdoors are required to wear a mask during the outdoor portion of their program as precise social distancing measurements (2 metres) may be difficult to maintain.
