Indoor group fitness programs cancelled until further notice

In response to new orders issued by the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) on November 23, 2020, the City of Port Moody is cancelling indoor group fitness programs and some programs for school-age children until further notice. 

Cancelled programs include:

  • low-intensity fitness programs such as yoga, Zumba, and barre
  • sport and dance programs for school-age children 

As announced on November 23, 2020, the following registered programs are re-starting at the Recreation Complex (300 Ioco Road):

  • skating lessons (week of November 23)
  • outdoor boot camp (November 25)
  • programs for school-age children that do not focus on physical activity such as science, art, and theatre (week of November 30) 

On November 30, 2020, we will open up the walking track as well as our indoor sport courts for pickleball and badminton only (no basketball at this time). Sport courts will be available for singles play only (two players maximum per court). 

As per the PHO’s orders issued on November 19, 2020, high-intensity fitness programs such as spin classes are suspended. Sport competitions, games, and practices are allowed but, by order of the PHO, no spectators are permitted. 

The Recreation Complex was closed on November 9 but re-opened November 16, 2020 for ice arena user groups, weight room use and personal training services, and Early Learners Outdoor Playschool. These services and programs continue to be available and are not affected by the most recent orders issued by the PHO. 

Your safety, and the safety of our employees, is our top priority. Special measures are in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our facilities including extra cleaning of indoor areas. We all need to do our part to help keep everyone safe. Please note you must:

  • answer COVID-19 health screening questions before entering a civic facility;
  • wear a face mask (masks are now required in all public indoor settings, including recreation centres, by order of the provincial government);
  • stay two metres (six feet) from anyone who is not a member of your household; and
  • wash or sanitize hands frequently. 

The City has taken a number of steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 while working to maintain core services. We’re continuously monitoring information about COVID-19 coming from public health authorities, and will make decisions about City services, programs, and facilities with the health and safety of our residents and our employees in mind.
