After today’s Provincial restrictions announcement to ease the spread of COVID-19, the CRCA recognizes Members and customers may have questions about what this means for users and any upcoming bookings at the Rec Centre.

We are presently evaluating how these restrictions will impact our operations and plan to share this information as soon as possible. Please visit our website for further updates.


November 13, 2020

In light of yesterday’s targeted public health measures announcement from the Government of Alberta, the CRCA would like to share with our Members and users what we know to date. 

  • The suspension is in place for two weeks beginning today (November 13) through Friday, November 27. Pending any further restrictions, the CRCA will return to normal activities/bookings on Saturday, November 28. 
     
  • The ban on indoor group fitness classes and team sports was introduced as these activities can have a high risk of spread due to exertion of participants, and often involve mixing and mingling before or after the class or activity. 
     
  • The CRCA expects all facility users to comply with the newly announced restrictions. Should CRCA employees encounter a booking or event not abiding by these new measures, the CRCA reserves the right to intervene and shut down the booking/event. Organizers of such events will not be entitled to a credit or refund.
