Further to the new COVID-19 rules regarding athletic activity announced by the province of B.C. last Thursday, Nov. 19, the province, by order of the Public Health Officer, is suspending all spin classes, hot yoga, and high intensity interval training.

Other group physical activites are temporarily suspended while new guidelines are made. Once the new guidelines are announced, affected venues and clubs will have to update and resubmit their COVID-19 Safety Plans before operating again. Activities suspended temporarily include gymnastics, martial arts, yoga, pilates, strength and conditioning, cheerleading, and dance studios.

Gyms and other places where individual training and workouts take place can remain open at this time. 

Sports activities and practices can continue, but teams are not allowed to travel or play teams outside of their community. Spectators remain prohibited from attending all sporting events and practices.
