City-operated arenas are now open, with the exception of St. James Civic Centre.
Residents are encouraged to book public skating blocks prior to arriving, as there is no guarantee of available blocks for registration upon arrival. Blocks will be offered on a week-by-week basis and reservations can be made up to 10 p.m. the day before the pre-reserved time (space permitting). Every Thursday, another week of public skating blocks will be added to what’s available for registration.
Access to dressing rooms/showers will be limited.
Customers are asked to use the self-assessment symptom checklist at the time of pre-booking, and before entering the facilities. Anyone exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms will not be allowed to enter.
For more information, see: winnipeg.ca/COVID-19.
Les arénas exploitées par la Ville sont désormais ouvertes, à l’exception de celui du centre municipal de St. James.
Depuis le 3 septembre 2021, il faut désormais une preuve d’immunisation contre la COVID-19 pour entrer dans les piscines, les centres de conditionnement physique, les centres de loisirs et les arénas que la Ville exploite, et pour participer aux programmes intérieurs qui y sont donnés.
On encourage les membres du public à réserver un bloc de patinage avant d’arriver aux installations, car il n’y aura pas nécessairement la place pour s’inscrire à l’improviste. Les blocs seront accessibles une semaine à la fois, et les membres du public pourront s’inscrire jusqu’à 22 h la veille, s’il y a la place. Chaque jeudi, on ajoutera une nouvelle semaine de blocs de patinage auxquels il sera possible de s’inscrire.
L’accès aux vestiaires et aux douches sera limité.
Les membres de la clientèle doivent lire la liste des symptômes et s’autoévaluer au moment de la réservation et avant d’entrer dans l’installation. Les personnes qui ont des symptômes de la COVID-19 ne seront pas admises.
