Effective July 12th, the Revelstoke Community & Aquatic Centre will be resuming somewhat normal operations. For the Aquatic Centre this means that we will be transitioning away from the reservation system. The pool schedule will continue to be structured so we encourage you to check the City’s website www.revelstoke.ca for the most up to date schedule. As well, as a courtesy, membership holders will continue to receive updates via email. For now, capacity for public swims will be increased to 80 people. The sauna, steam room and climbing wall will be open and last but not least, changeroom access will be available before your swim. You will now also be able to purchase annual passes. Please remember that in September the aquatic centre will be closed for 3 weeks as part of the annual maintenance program for the facility. This closure period is accounted for in the cost of an annual pass.
For fitness pass holders, this means you no longer need to make a reservation online. You will be able to access the facility during regular hours of operation. Please note that fitness centre capacity will be limited to 6 people at a time.
For the community centre this means that capacity in our meeting room spaces will be increased in accordance with the most recent updates to the Gathering & Events Order. You are no longer required to wear a mask in the facility however, masks are recommended for all people 12 and older who are not yet fully vaccinated; this will be on the honor system and personal responsibility. Lastly, access to the facility will continue to be via Campbell Avenue entrance.
To maintain a healthy and safe environment for our citizens, visitors and employees, the City of Revelstoke will keep a number of protective measures in place. The City will promote thoughtful physical distancing and provide protective barriers for the public and our staff. Some of the protective measures include:
• The continued use of plexiglass windows at reception counters
• Physical distancing markers for queuing
• Hand sanitizer and / or hand washing stations at facility entrances
• Enhanced cleaning protocols
Thanks to everyone for your support and patience as we navigated our way through the last 15 months. We could not have done it without your cooperation.
