As announced by BC’s Provincial Health Officer this afternoon, the province will be moving to Step 3 of the Restart Plan on Thursday, July 1. With this move, comes a number of positive changes to health and safety restrictions. This includes: revisions to indoor and outdoor public gatherings, increased capacity allowances for fitness activities, and further loosening of restrictions for sport.
The province will be releasing clear guidelines as it pertains to Step 3 in the coming days. We anticipate these new changes will result in our ability to make a number of enhancements to access, wayfinding and our sport and fitness drop-in schedules. As we have done throughout the pandemic, we will continue to take great care to ensure all of our protocol is aligned with the details listed in the PHO as well as the protocol required by the City of Richmond. The safety of our customers and staff has and remains our top priority.
Starting as early as July 5, 2021, customers will start to see changes to Richmond Olympic Oval operations and programming. We will be sure to keep customers apprised of any alterations to our service levels through our website, social media channels and member communications so please stay tuned for more specifics.
