COVID-19 Update (Return to Step 1)

Hello members and program participants,

The Government of Alberta has released new health measures to protect the health system and reduce the rising spread of COVID-19 throughout Alberta. Alberta returned to Step 1 of its four-step reopening plan (the Path Forward) on April 6th. Step 1 restrictions will remain in place until further notice. Currently, in compliance with all applicable current health measures, the Acadia Recreation Complex remains closed with limited use.
