Hey Program Participants!
Here is info you need to know about the Sunova Centre – West St. Paul’s Recreation Site / RM of West St. Paul’s Reopening Plan

As we open our facility, we will see more members of the community use the space. It is very important that we offer a safe environment for the community. 
We are going to do this in various ways:

  • Masks are required in the common areas, optional in programming 
  • Facility users are asked not to arrive sooner than 10 minutes before their designated timeslot and must leave immediately after their program ends 
  • The main doors will remain locked and will be unlocked to let in those that are attending the facility for a program/rental
  • The maximum number of people permitted indoors is 50, except where distinct groups of 50 can be separated to prevent contact with other groups through the use of separate exits, staggered schedules, as well as sufficient space to avoid    congestion
  • Use hand sanitizer when you enter and exit the facility
  • One entrance will be used to control the amount of people who enter the facility
  • One exit will be used to control the flow of those exiting the facility
  • Follow arrows for entrance and exit procedures
  • Be aware of the physical distancing markers on the ground  
  • Plexi-glass installed to have a barrier between the desk in the office and the customer
  • Change room, shower areas, water fountains and equipment room are closed
  • Bleachers in mezzanine will be removed
  • Multiple programs/rentals in the facility will refrain from interacting with the other groups
  • Avoid congregating in shared areas, such as the lobby of the facility
  • Allow physical distancing of two meters (6ft) at all times; except brief exchanges with others
  • Only conduct necessary and brief exchanges within two meters (6ft) of others
  • Extra time between programs/rentals to leave time for extra sanitization and disinfection
  • RM Staff will ensure the area being used is cleaned and sanitized thoroughly before the program/rental takes place
  • RM Staff will regularly clean high touch surfaces
