On Monday, June 8 the Pat Porter Active Living Centre opened its doors to the public again. While the Centre is open, it is not open to full capacity and a number of things have changed.
– Masks must be worn in the building
– Everyone is encouraged to call ahead and reserve a spot for the program they are wanting to participate in.
– There will be a set number of people allowed inside the building at any given time.
– Programs will have a limited number of participants.
– There will be new safety procedures to follow such as maintaining a distance of at least 6 feet, frequent hand sanitizing and abiding by posted signage.
– No outside food, beverage, or beverage containers will be allowed until further notice.
When You Arrive:
– Come on in, unless the door is locked, in which case ring the doorbell.
– One of our staff or a board member will greet you, ask a few questions and guide you from there.
– Everyone needs to be signed in by reception, as this is required by Manitoba Health. Members please bring your cards as this will speed up the process.
Things will be off to a very slow and careful start, but with everyone’s cooperation we hope things will go back to how they used to be very soon. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we all get used to this temporary way of things. We look forward to seeing you again!
In an effort to keep you updates and informed on the Covid-19 situation in Manitoba we will be providing you with links to the latest information.
Should you wish to talk to someone but are unable to make it to the Centre, our staff are onsite Monday to Friday from 9 am – 4 pm and will be happy to chat and check in with you. We can be reached at 204-320-4600.
In the meantime, look out for weekly emails containing online games, craft ideas, exercise videos and other content to keep you positive and busy.
We hope everyone is staying safe and we look forward to seeing you back at the Centre again soon!
