Given the ever evolving situation with COVID-19 around the world, it’s only natural to feel concerned. As a busy recreation and sports facility, the health and safety of our members and guests is always top of mind. We continue to closely monitor the situation with the help of the Halifax Regional Municipality Emergency Management Division and Nova Scotia’s Emergency Management Office and Department of Health and Wellness.
Cole Harbour Place will adapt as required, and we have also implemented enhanced measures to reduce the risks associated with the spread of viruses, including increasing the frequency in which common surfaces (like handrails, door handles, etc.) are cleaned, and the installation of additional hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the facility recently.
What you can do:
- Practicing good hygiene remains the best defense against illness. Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently using soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or use hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then immediately place it in the garbage and wash your hands. If no tissue is readily available, cough and sneeze into the crook of your bent arm (at the elbow).
- Wipe down exercise equipment with the disinfecting wipes after you are finished using it. We provide cleaning solution for this purpose.
- If you’re feeling ill or unwell, please stay home and rest up.
- Stay informed and up-to-date through Nova Scotia’s Department of Health and Wellness: https://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/
We will continue to follow the advice and guidance of Nova Scotia’s Chief Medical Officer, updating you with any relevant information as it relates to our facility and you as users.
If you wish to cancel any programs or events we have waived our cancellation policy and will be providing refunds to anyone who requests them out of concern for their health.
We appreciate each and every one of you and will continue to provide updates as they come.
