Sports, Recreation and COVID-19


We are currently in Step 3 of the Roadmap to Reopen .

 As sports and recreational activities reopen it is important that we continue to follow public health measures such as:  

  • Practice physical distancing – stay two (2) metres from others who do not reside in your home. 

  • Wear a face covering indoors and outdoors as required and whenever physical distancing is difficult.  

  • Wash or sanitize your hands often.  

  • Cough and sneeze into your sleeve.  

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. 

  • Closed for indoor use except for high-performance athletes and day or overnight camps
  • Outdoor sports leagues open (Note: Team sports or games that may result in personal contact must not be practised or played at the facility unless the sport or game has been modified to avoid personal contact.)

Sports and Recreation Facilities

  • Indoor sports and recreational fitness facilities to open subject to a maximum 50 per cent capacity of the indoor space.
