As B.C. implements new public health orders, the City of Campbell River now requires employees and visitors to wear a face mask in all public and common spaces within city facilities.

Masks must fully cover the nose and mouth.

The city’s recreation department has also altered some programs to comply with public health requirements. Effective immediately, masks are required in public recreation spaces for everyone over the age of 2 years.  

High-intensity fitness activities like Spin and Tabata have been cancelled, and no spectators are permitted at indoor or outdoor sporting events or practices.

At this time, no indoor or outdoor social bookings or rentals are available, however, bookings remain open for the weight room and low-risk programs. Low-intensity fitness classes are still being offered. 

“We continue to follow all current public health guidelines and recommendations, and we will issue public notification on any changes as necessary,” says city manager Deborah Sargent.

“We urge everyone to do their part to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and appreciate people’s patience and cooperation as we adjust our service levels to comply with evolving public health requirements.”
