To All Pacific Rim Members and Visiting Participants

As you now know, the Provincial Health Order is now Province wide. We all must read and abide by the following. We are back again following Phase 3 Guidelines as they were originally established.

Athletic activities

Group indoor fitness activities
Businesses, recreation centres or other organizations that organize or operate high risk indoor group physical activities must suspend the following activities:

Spin classes
Hot yoga
High intensity interval training (HIIT)

Businesses who close due to COVID-19 restrictions could be eligible to receive rent support of up to 90 percent.

Guidance on other fitness activities done with a group indoors will need to follow updated guidance that is being developed. These include:

Dance studios
Martial arts
Cheerleading

Gyms and recreation facilities
Gyms and recreation facilities that offer individual workouts and personal training sessions can remain open as long as they have a COVID-19 Safety Plan that is strictly followed.

Sports games, competitions and practices
Games, competitions and practices can continue with no spectators and no travel.

We are in viaSport’s Return to Sport Phase 3 with the exception of no spectators and no travel

Spectators
No spectators are allowed at any sport activities under the order. The only people allowed to attend sport activities are those that provide care to a participant or player. For example, providing first aid.
