Nine city-operated fitness facilities will be up and running on a limited basis early next week.
After months-long closures, the City of Winnipeg is bringing back 75 temporary, part-time employees to help run its recreation facilities.
Starting on Monday, the following fitness facilities will reopen:
- Chief Peguis Fitness Centre
- Cindy Klassen Recreation Complex
- Elmwood Kildonans Pool
- Fort Rouge Leisure Centre
- Freight House Recreation Centre
- Kinsmen Sherbook Pool
- Pan Am Pool
- Sergeant Tommy Prince Place
- St. James Assiniboia Centennial Pool
Fitness facilities will open at a limited capacity, allowing residents to use the space in two-hour time blocks. While each facility will have its own procedures, all will close for 30 minutes in between the blocks for cleaning.
Pools and arenas remain closed. There will be no group classes offered at this time. Gyms must follow all provincial guidelines.
People wanting to use the gym will need to book their slot online, up to 30-minutes before the time period. When they arrive already dressed for activities with a QR code, one person from the household must provide contact information. That contact information will be stored for 21 days in the event of a public exposure.
As of Monday, all city-owned libraries will be open for pickups and holds with extended hours, including Saturdays.
Cornish Library is closed for renovations.
