The Province-wide restrictions by the Public Health Officer originally put in place on November 19 were unexpectedly updated. The order originally stated that Spin classes, Hot yoga and High intensity interval training (HIIT) classes were to be temporarily suspended. The same order also stated that other activities done with group inside were able to continue being offered while updated guidance was being developed by the province.
Unfortunately, the update now requires a temporary suspension of other types of indoor group physical activities including Dance, Martial Arts, Yoga, Pilates, Strength and Conditioning and Cheerleading while new guidance for these activities is being developed.
In accordance with this update, the Oval will be pausing our group fitness and strength and conditioning offerings effective immediately.
We are eagerly awaiting the release of the new guidance so that our updated safety plan can be submitted for approval. We are hopeful to receive our approval prior to the expiration of the order on December 7.
