Fitness Centre

The Township and Public Health Officials remind you of the following, for the protection of yourself and others:

  • Vaccinations are strongly recommended
  • Wearing a mask while inside crowded facilities is still recommended. Please note: when working out, droplets are expelled at higher velocities. Therefore, although masks are not mandatory they are recommended
  • Read the screening questions, and stay home if you are sick
  • Physical distancing (2 metres / 6 feet) from others is still recommended, especially when indoors and when many people will be without masks
  • Hand sanitization upon entry of a facility is highly recommended
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, or use hand-sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
  • You must thoroughly wipe down the equipment before and after use, with the disinfectant bottles provided
  • The Fitness Centre will be electrostatically disinfected on a regular basis 

We thank you very much for your co-operation and understanding.
