The Comox Valley Sports Centre located at 3001 Vanier Dr. in Courtenay will re-open Sept. 8.
The facility has been closed to the public since March 17 to help limit the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
“The re-opening of the Sports Centre, including the pool facility, has been a top priority to ensure the well-being and health of our community,” said Daniel Arbour, chair of the regional district sports commission. “The Aquatic Centre will remain closed for now while we monitor the demand and COVID-19 risks prior to re-opening this facility. In order to protect the health and safety of users and the staff, please remain home if you are sick or showing any signs of COVID-19.”
The re-opening follows the BC Recreation and Parks Association, and WorkSafe BC guidelines. Pool offerings will be limited to ensure a safe and healthy experience. Available pool programs will include aquacise, rehab swim times, lane swim times, and select swim lessons.
More information about CVRD programming at the Sports Centre is available in the Fall Recreation Guide, which is online.
