Program Changes for the 21/22 Season

Current #RestartMB Guidelines – Southern Health – Code ORANGE: Restricted

With us currently being under Code Orange restrictions, all of our programs are currently running, however there is a capacity limit on those attending. That limit is 49 people (that number includes staff, volunteers, & anyone attending). Closures may happen as the year progresses, but we’re praying that this situation becomes controllable and that we’ll be able to be open for the majority of the 21/22 season.
We will be doing contact tracing (including asking about vaccine status) just to protect the people who attend our programs, and their families. While we are asking about vaccine status, you are under no obligation to be vaccinated or to show proof of vaccine. It is simply for contact tracing purposes at this time.

While under Provincial Code Orange:

While the core of our programs hasn’t changed, there are a few things that have.
First and foremost, the safety of our students, their families, as well as our staff and volunteers is our NUMBER 1 priority! The rules for attending any one of our programs are as follows:
  • Sanitize your hands and answer the questions asked by a staff member
  • Physical distancing is a must (2 metres between people)
  • If you or someone you live with has travelled outside of Manitoba, please do not enter the building
  • Use hand sanitizer upon entering the building, and any time you change tasks to go do something else.
  • The COVID-19 vaccine IS NOT required to attend our program! You’re welcome either way!
  • At this time, our capacity limit for each program is 49 people (this includes staff, volunteers, & attendees)
    • This number may fluctuate based on the state of the Southern Health Region according to #RESTARTMB – The Pandemic Response System. Please see the announcement at the top of this page for the current occupancy limit.
  • Avoid greetings that require touching (hand-shakes, hugs, etc.)
  • Masks are required in order to enter our building and attend our program. Masks are available should you forget one. Refusal to wear a mask will result in you being asked to leave for the evening.
    –  Note that face shields are not acceptable.
  • Absolutely NO bandanas
  • If you are at all unwell, please go home
  • Parents/Guardians, if your child isn’t feeling well, DO NOT SEND THEM! Basically, if you’ve had to give them medication for anything (outside of regular wellness medications), DO NOT SEND THEM!
  • If a staff member/volunteer suspects that a student is sick (showing COVID related symptoms), the student will be asked to leave and they must comply. Parents/Guardians will be contacted if the student needs to be picked up.
  • If a student is sent home due to illness (showing COVID related symptoms), a note will be made on their file to check in with them during the week to ensure that they haven’t gotten worse.
  • Should a person test positive after attending any of our programs, we will be following the instructions given to us by Manitoba Public Health. There may be a possibility of a temporary building closure which would result in the cancellation of programs and rentals. Should this happen, we would be posting about the closure and our procedure to move forward on our social media pages (links below).
