COVID-19 Update March 20, 2020
The situation regarding COVID-19 is changing rapidly. When we closed the Centre to public access a few days ago we instituted daily office hours for members to pick up a key should they need one. Since then the City of Vancouver and the Province of British Columbia have each issued a state of emergency and have asked people to self-isolate at home as much as possible. We re-evaluated how daily office hours put you and our employees at risk, and we’ve decided to terminate office hours effective today, until further notice. Showers and change rooms will now also remain locked.
The JSCA is not an essential service. We are strongly encouraging all members to do what they can to limit the spread of COVID-19 by self-isolating at home, maintaining appropriate social distance when they do venture out (when only absolutely necessary), and by practicing diligent hand washing technique. Coming down to the Centre and touching common surfaces such as the doors and gates as well as any shared equipment only increases one’s potential exposure.
Furthermore, all events, meetings and room bookings scheduled during April are cancelled until further notice. We will be sending out additional updates as the situation develops.
We look forward to re-opening the Jericho Sailing Centre as soon as it is safe to do so. Feel free to direct questions or concerns by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay safe. Stay healthy.
