Fitness Centre

Update for September 9th, 2021:

Yesterday 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.

Update for August 30th, 2021:

Please note that our fitness centre is currently closed due to Covid-19 restrictions; due to the small square footage of our fitness centre area we are not able to meet the current guidelines as issued by NS Dept of Public Health in a way that works for our small not for profit organization.

We are currently awaiting the NS Government to release the Public Health guidelines for Before & After School Care – The guidelines may impact our ability to have members of the public on-site at the same time as children (keeping in mind that due to the ages of our child care participants, they are not eligible for vaccination).

In the meantime, we are working with our service provider to have the equipment inspected and serviced to ensure it is safe for use when we are ready to open.

We are hopeful that we will be able to reopen this area of the facility by phase 5 of the provincial government plan, however, please note that this is dependant on the above and may mean that we are not able to open at full, pre-pandemic capacity, or pre-pandemic hours.  We will investigate all opening opportunities possible, in consideration of what the public health guidelines and the space in the facility will allow.

Existing memberships will be extended for the full duration of our closure once we reopen.  To inquire about your membership or the potential for a refund please reach out to The Operations & Finance Manager at admin@prospectcommunities.com
