Latest Covid Information


City of Airdrie Arena Rules - September 27, 2021

The Province has updated guidance on the Restriction Exemption Program to ensure consistency after a week of conflicting interpretations by Public Health Officers across the Province. A couple of points that specifically impact sport user groups in City facilities are included below and should be communicated to your membership.
 
  1. Coaches, instructors, trainers, referees etc. for youth activities, who are 18 years or older, are subject to the public health measures or REP requirements in the facility. Thus, there is no exemption and must demonstrate proof of vaccination, medical exemption or negative covid test result. We'll adjust our screening process beginning on Monday, September 27th.
  2. Youth are subject to physical distancing at all other times when not engaged in the physical activity (e.g. locker rooms, common areas etc.). The accountability on this will rest with user groups and organizations will need to determine their own plan which may be audited by a Public Health Officer.

 City of Airdrie Arena Rules - September 20, 2021

The City of Airdrie is implementing the Restriction Exemption Program as of September 20, 2021.  https://www.alberta.ca/covid-19-public-health-actions.aspx  

Youth (12-17 years) are exempt from demonstrating proof of vaccination, medical exemption or negative COVID-19 test accessing a facility with a Restriction Exemption Program in place as long as they are there for the sole purpose of taking part in activity. Volunteers, such as coaching staff, will also not be required to show proof of vaccination, medical exemption or negative COVID-19 test in order to perform their activity-related responsibilities within our facilities. 

Participants should still ensure that they are screening for symptoms by going through the Alberta Health daily checklist.

 

All other vaccine-eligible visitors/spectators 18 years and above, and those 12-17 years not participating in sport, must still produce proof of vaccination, medical exemption or negative COVID-19 test result within the last 72 hours, prior to entering a City of Airdrie recreation facility.

As the City of Airdrie further reviews the restrictions and consults with public health in the coming days guidelines may be adjusted, please be patient as we all navigate this challenge time. 


City of Crossfield Arena Rules - September 22, 2021

Crossfield town Council discussed the Restriction Exemption Program (REP) last night and at this time they have decided that the REP will not be implemented at the Pete Knight Arena. Therefore, the Pete Knight Arena and its users must adhere to the restrictions that have been implemented in the most recent public health orders.

Unfortunately, this means that adult user groups will not be permitted to use the Pete Knight Arena at this time.

For youth user groups using the Pete Knight Arena, this means:

  • Indoor group classes, training and competitions are permitted, but participants are required to:

-         Screen for symptoms

-         Maintain 2 metres distancing, except youth while engaged in physical activity

-         Wear a mask, except youth while engaged in physical activity

  • Spectator attendance is restricted to 1/3 fire code capacity, attendees are limited to a single household or 2 close contacts if living alone and must be masked and maintain 2 metres physical distancing

 In summary:

  • We will not be asking for proof of vaccination, medical exemption or negative COVID-19 test to access the building
  • We ask that all patrons including spectators, players, skaters, coaches, team officials, etc. screen for symptoms before coming to the arena
  • Masking (including while getting changed in dressing rooms) and physical distancing will be required except for youth who are participating in physical activity
  • Adult user groups will not be permitted at this time
  • Spectators will be limited to 1/3 capacity

 Please note that this could change at any time depending on public health orders, issues with following current restrictions, etc.

 Thank you for your understanding and patience as we work to understand these new restrictions and rules.
