City Closes Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex
Following today’s recommendation from the Provincial Medical Health Officer and Minister of Health, the City of Williams Lake will be closing the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex as of 9:00 pm Tuesday, March 17, 2020 until further notice.
“The top priority of the City continues to be the health and safety of our employees and the public, and therefore we will continue to follow the advice of the Province and Medical Health Officer,” said Ian James, Director of Community Services. “We understand that the closure of the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex will have a significant effect on many people in the community in a variety of ways; however, we must work to help reduce the possibility of individuals coming into contact with COVID-19 to lessen the impact on our healthcare system and community.”
Registered programs, swimming lessons and drop-in programs are also cancelled until further notice. Prorated refunds or facility credits will be given to those who have already registered for any cancelled programs. Further information will be provided on how these will be processed.
The Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex will also provide annual and monthly membership holders with credits to the Complex one the facility has reopened.
The City has prepared a small list of exercises that can be done at home if you are limiting your social interaction or practicing self-isolation. They can be found here: https://www.williamslake.ca/857/Exercise-At-Home
