The City of Weyburn is getting ready to open its indoor pool for the fall and winter seasons.
The Weyburn Leisure Centre (WLC) opens to the public on Monday, Sept. 14, and new rules and regulations are in place due to COVID-19 that patrons should be aware of.
Registration is required for public, lane and senior swims and opens at 6 a.m., two days in advance of the available swim times. Swimmers can register up to the day of the swim but spots are limited to a certain capacity.
Registration is online at the City’s website (www.weyburn.ca/weyburn-leisure-centre) but can also be completed over the phone during WLC business hours.
Patrons will be asked screening questions regarding their health during registration. Please do not enter the facility if you have a fever, cough or shortness of breath.
The Leisure Centre will open 15 minutes prior to swim time and the public will wait in line until directed by the cashier to enter. Temperature checks and payment will take place at the front counter.
Change rooms are open but swimmers are asked to come dressed in bathing suits to avoid congestion. All patrons should be respectful and maintain physical distancing.
Tables and chairs have been removed from the lobby; if you are supervising a child, you will be required to be on deck, where limited seating will be available.
WLC maintenance staff, cashiers and lifeguards are all committed to following a vigorous cleaning and disinfecting plan. Staff will sanitize change rooms, washrooms, pool deck, bleachers and high traffic areas during scheduled breaks between swim times.
Being active is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, and the City of Weyburn is working hard to provide safe and healthy recreation opportunities for its residents during the coronavirus pandemic.
