RE: Gym Closure

While BC is starting to relax some restrictions around COVID-19, residents need to understand that we are not back to normal. COVID-19 is still a real threat to everyone – social distancing, self isolation, and many other restrictions currently in place or amended over the next many months will be with us for some time.

Community gyms and many private gyms are still closed and are currently not projected to be open until Phase 3, by order of Dr. Bonnie Henry.  Based on details from the Provincial Health Officer and WorkSafeBC, there are many conditions that would need to be met if The Taylor’s gym were to be open, including but not limited to social distancing requirements, a full-time gym attendant would have to be hired to monitor and sanitize the equipment / facilities. At this time, the expense(s) are not feasible and / or currently within the operating budget.

The Council is continuing to monitor the situation and is hopeful that the gym will be able to be reopened at some point under strict use and cleaning polices.  Until further notice, the gym remains closed.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
