WOODVILLE, NOVA SCOTIA – The Woodville Community Centre Board of Directors wishes to advise the residents of Woodville and Kings County who are members of our Fitness Room that despite the recent government announcement allowing fitness facilities to begin phasing their re-openings, the Fitness Room at the Woodville Community Centre will not be re-opening at the present time. This difficult decision was made due to the unique nature of our small, volunteer-managed fitness facility, which makes it nearly impossible to comply with the proposed recommendations and requirements for screening patrons, limiting occupancy, ensuring social/physical distancing, and carrying out cleaning and sanitizing tasks with significantly increased frequency. In the event that a facility is found to not be in compliance with these requirements, it may be forced by the government to close its doors, which is a risk we do not wish to take. We recognize that our current capacity does not allow us to comply with all of the public health requirements, so we feel that remaining closed for the time being is the most responsible course of action and is in the best interest of our patrons’ health and that of our communities. The Board of Directors will re-evaluate this decision later in the summer, with the hope of beginning to phase our re-opening in the fall. We thank all our members for your patience and understanding, and hope you have a wonderful summer enjoying the beautiful outdoors!
