Hello Rady Friends,
Earlier this month, the Province of Manitoba announced an easing of their COVID-19 vaccination and mandatory mask policy in Manitoba effective March 1 and March 15 respectively.
In response to these changes, please be advised the Rady JCC has made the decision to maintain mandatory vaccination requirements for all members, staff, and volunteers attending the Rady JCC beyond these effective dates.
Please also be advised that masks for Rady members will continue to be mandatory at all times while not engaging in strenuous activities beyond these effective dates. This includes on the pool deck, in locker rooms, and walking to and from locker room showers. Masks will continue to be optional while engaging in physical activities. Rady staff and volunteers will be required to wear masks at all times.
It should be noted that this decision was made after careful discussion with our medical consultants. Many other business and organizations throughout Manitoba are maintaining these requirements as well.
The health and safety of Rady members, staff, and volunteers remains our highest priority. We are maintaining these policies to safeguard the wellbeing of our employees and their families, our members, and the community at large from COVID-19.
This policy recognizes that mask use and vaccination against COVID-19 remains the most effective means to reduce the spread and severity of the virus. We will continue to adapt our requirements as public health recommendations evolve.
