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