The main pool at Strathcona Gardens Recreation Complex in Campbell River is set to reopen this coming Monday, September 21st.
It’s opening later than usual because of COVID-19, and Deputy manager Ryan Christison says staff have now been thoroughly trained on new procedures and safety protocols.
“Those who plan to use the main pool are asked to arrive already in their swimsuits, as change rooms will have very limited access. However, washrooms remain open,” Christison says.
“We will be starting off gradually with a reduced number of programs such as lane swimming and registered fitness classes with the intention to build on these going forward.”
He says Strathcona Gardens plans to extend hours and open up other services and programs over time.
“It’s recognized that the pool schedule to begin this fall season is limited, however, the goal is to work towards a more normal operating schedule taking cautious steps forward in the COVID-19 restart plan.”
Admission to the main pool will be by pre-registration only, and health screening is required before you can enter.
At this time, the leisure pool, hot tub, steam rooms and waterslide remain closed.
