Fall Programs, Fitness Centre & general operations: On September 8th, 2021 the provincial government announced a mandatory vaccination policy for all recreational and non-essential activities such as fitness facilities, sports events, etc. effective on October 4th, 2021. This encompasses all activities that we offered pre-pandemic, and had hoped to bring back in phase 5 of the reopening plan which is slated for September 15th, 2021. Though important, for a small not-for-profit like ourselves, this presents a monumental logistical challenge, further complicated by the fact that we are a public facility with many industry sectors in operation, and many employees. We had hoped to release our fall program guide this week, once we received clarification around a few public health guidelines, however, this new requirement will take us some time to figure out & implement. We are currently consulting with HRM as the building owner, to gain insight and support as we move towards the October 4th deadline. This is yet another speed bump in the reopening process and is outside of our control. We appreciate your patience & understanding in this matter as we do our part to keep the Prospect Communities as safe as possible.
