Yes and no – We ask all patrons to wear a mask in the transition areas of the facility as per the City of Lethbridge Mask Bylaw. Masks are not required in program or activity spaces. (i.e. on your way to the gymnasium? Wear a mask. In the gym playing basketball, no mask required).

Safety is our number one priority. You may see fewer restrictions in place, however, you can enjoy your time knowing we are disinfecting at a high rate and following all Alberta Health Services Guidelines.

Yes, all change rooms are open effective July 2nd, 2021.

We took a bit of extra time to ensure that our reopening is effective and safe. A major component of this is the retraining and recertification of employees to ensure the facility and your experience are of the highest quality and safety. Overall, we have more moving parts than the average gym or recreation centre and it takes time to reopen. As a charity, it’s difficult for us to recall employees when it is uncertain if we would be able to offer certain levels of programs and services.
