July 17, 2020 Update
As you know, the Provincial Government and the Direction de la santé publique announced earlier this week that masks will become mandatory in all public, indoor spaces as of July 18, 2020, including sports centres such as curling clubs.
Please see below details we received that apply directly to our environment:
- Masks must be worn at all times (upon arrival at the club, during transfers, in the changing rooms, etc.), with the following exceptions:
- During physical activity or exercise;
- While seated as a spectator (such as on the stands) and while ensuring that the minimum 1.5 meters of physical distancing are observed;
- While the person is seated in a lounge area (bar) and the minimum 1.5 meters of physical distancing is adhered to.
- It is recommended for coaches, equipment managers and medical personnel to wear a mask should physical distancing not be possible at all times.
- Wearing a mask is strongly recommended, but not mandatory for children between the ages of 2 and 12.
Please also note that the 50-person limit for all indoor gatherings remains in effect across our province. For curling clubs, this directive may be applied separately to the shed and the bar-lounge areas, respectively (while respecting the limits authorized within your building). It is, therefore, possible for curling clubs to welcome up to 50 people in the club and 50 people on the ice simultaneously, as long as you can ensure a strict protocol following all other social distancing public health directives and recommendations are respected.
