Covid-19 Participant Information

Controlling access to North Woodside Community Centre is of paramount importance. Once an instructor or participant has accessed the Centre, maintaining appropriate social distancing is a requirement of the Centre and its instructors. I would like to emphasize that our Centre prides itself on hosting quality programs and providing a safe environment for all of our participants and rental groups. Our instructors are to provide quality customer service, supervise their programs and ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Our Building Staff responsibilities when preparing for a program within the Centre:

Ø  Building Staff arrive 30 minutes before a program begins to open the North Woodside Community Centre.

Ø   Building Staff must prepare room for each class (ie: no broken glass or debris, furniture is put away, floor is clean, all is sanitized, etc.)

Ø  Once the room has been opened by the Building Staff (no earlier than 15 minutes before class is to start) participants are then free to enter the room and wait within their space in the room for class to begin.

Ø  With Covid 19 there will be no waiting in the hallways, benches have been removed. Children can be accompanied to their designated room if needed; parent must then leave the Centre and wait outside for child to finish.

  Participant responsibilities when taking part in a program.

·        The Centre is a private recreational centre.  All programs of the Centre are closed programs once registration is completed.  No drop-ins are allowed.   Participants of NWCC programs are expected to wear a mask in all common areas of the Centre (such as hallways, stairways and washrooms). Masks can be taken off when you are in your space in the room, unless instructor requires the masks to remain on for the entire class.

·       The North Woodside Community Centre will social distance all participants in class regardless of the 10 bubble rule as a precaution.  It is up to the individual if they feel more comfortable wearing a mask.

·         Plexiglas has been installed at front office to increase staff safety/as well as participants.
