Drumheller Shares COVID-19 Update Regarding Status of Town Facilities in Step One of the Provincial "Path Forward" Plan

Posted on Feb. 4 2021

On January 28, 2021 the Province of Alberta announced that limited restrictions may be lifted as soon as Monday, February 8th. The Province shared a roadmap developed to help Albertans understand how restrictions will be eased in steps over the coming months. The “Path Forward” roadmap includes steps 1 through 4 with hospitalization benchmarks and the potential easing of certain restrictions.

Step 1 includes less than 600 hospitalizations, and potentially easing restrictions for restaurants, indoor fitness and indoor/outdoor children’s sport and performance (school-related only).

The following applies to Town facilities as of February 8, 2021:

Badlands Community Facility

  • Remains closed until further notice
  • Opening the BCF will be re-evaluated in Step 2

Drumheller Memorial Arena & Drumheller Aquaplex

  • Only one-on-one or one-on-one household training is permitted for indoor fitness activities (for example, swimming pools, training figure skating on ice, one-on-one lessons).
  • Sessions have to be scheduled or by appointment. No drop-in or groups allowed.
  • Individual workouts without a trainer are not permitted.
  • One-on-one sessions cannot interact with others and there must be a minimum of 3 metres distance between pairs of trainers and clients (aka sessions) in the same facility.
  • Trainers must be professional, certified and/or paid trainers who are providing active instruction and correction. Passive supervision of a physical activity is not considered training.
  • Trainers must remain masked during the session. Clients are not required to wear a mask while doing high intensity exercise.
  • More than one trainer and client ‘pair’ are allowed into the rink, pool, ice surface, etc. with restrictions
  • Availability of pool or ice time will be limited and re-evaluated in Step 2

“It’s not cost-effective at this time to re-open the Badlands Community Facility in Step 1 of the Provincial plan,” explains CAO, Darryl Drohomerski. “Our recreation team has been working with user groups for the arena and pool to determine their needs and make a plan.”

Town Hall will re-open to the public, however it is still encouraged to limit in-person transactions and appointments as much as possible.
