Organized Sport and Recreation Activities
Please note that there is a
listing of " examples of activities" based on level of contact (
low, moderate,high, full contact ). It is important to understand that just
because a sport or activity is not listed here doesn't mean it can't open
up, but a " return to play " plan should be developed that
provides guidance to member organizations. These Return to Play plans
do not require approval by the Chief Public health Office but you are asked to provide a copy to the Sport and Recreation Division for their
Sports that are in the "
full contact" category have asked if they can begin to operate as
well...yes they can, provided extensive modifications are developed to the sport .
Activities that would be able to be offered should focus on skills/drills, etc.
and avoid any type of contact between participants.
Organized sport and recreation
activities that are contemplating having more than one gathering at a
time at a facility must follow the guidance on "multiple gatherings
". Per Phase 3, each gathering must follow indoor and outdoor gathering guidance of no
more than 15 people indoors and 20 people outdoors per gathering. Indoor gatherings must be
separated into different rooms, or in very large indoor spaces, into clearly
defined zones. Outdoor gatherings must be separated into clearly defined
, marked zones.
All facilities/organizations are
required to develop an operational plan (which could look different than the
Return to Play documents) , however you do not need
to submit the operational plan to the Chief Public Health Office before
reopening, except in the following situations:
Facilities/ programs that are
hosting multiple gatherings must submit an operational plan to the Chief
Pubic Health Office ( firstname.lastname@example.org)
including how they will ensure that the multiple gathering guidelines are being
followed. Facilities and programs must receive pre-approval of their
operational plan to have multiple gatherings involving more than 50
individuals across all gatherings.
Please include in the subject line of your
email if it is a multiple gatherings situation and if the total number of
participants across gatherings is greater than 50. Note: Gathering numbers include ( participants, staff, organizers, volunteers and spectators ) .
