Commons Racquet Club Covid operating plan

A safe place to play Tennis & Pickleball

With the release of BC's reopening plan, our Commons Racquet Club is partially open. We will be continuing to monitor the COVID-19 government recommendations and advise when we can resume our full operations. Our Club opening plan is based on five key factors:

1. Safety of Members, Staff and the Predator Ridge Community
2. Reducing “touch points”
3. Limiting Club access
4. Strictly enforcing physical distancing measures
5. Enhancing cleaning procedures

It is important that to realize that this is not business as usual. We must adapt to the new normal.

We’ve increased cleaning schedules including ongoing sanitization of hands and hard surfaces after contact with each guest, high-touch areas are being disinfected continuously throughout the day and washrooms are cleaned hourly.

CONSIDERATIONS

If you are experiencing any flu like symptoms you are asked to remain at home. Do not play if you are considered vulnerable or at risk.

Property access is not permitted if you are in self isolation as a result of travel on mass transit from international travel (14 days) or for anyone who has been exposed to a known or potential case of COVID-19 (14 days).
