Update on City of St. Albert’s Response to COVID-19
Update for February 10, 2021
The City of St. Albert continues to take a thoughtful and measured approach in its response to COVID-19. Unless listed on the facility closures or in this release, all City services are still available for access by phone, email or online.
Due to the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation, this information is considered current as of the date of distribution.
The City will reopen its gymnasium, fieldhouses and indoor arenas beginning February 16, 2021 for booked use only to community sport partners and for curriculum-related activities for schools. Reopening of selected areas at Servus Credit Union Place and Jarome Iginla/Kinex arenas are in response to user demand and is in alignment with the Government of Alberta’s The Path Forward. In support of youth’s physical and mental well-being, participants must be 18 years of age or younger. In alignment with provincial guidelines, indoor recreation facilities will remain closed to the general public and spectators will not be allowed.
The City is reaching out to sport partners and schools regarding the booking schedule and will provide specific guidelines that must be followed inside City facilities to mitigate COVID-19 risks and keep facility staff and patrons safe. Other group, or individual bookings, will be assessed in the coming weeks based on provincial guidelines. The City is planning to offer virtual one-on-one training and virtual sport team dryland training in the coming weeks and will investigate the potential for in-person one-on-one training. More information will be available once decisions are made. The City thanks its residents and patrons as we work through our response to COVID-19.
