Given the exceptionally rapid spread of the Omicron COVID variant in Ottawa and Ontario, and the uncertainty with respect to how this will impact the risks we face locally in the delivery of recreational programming, OSCA has decided to postpone the start of its Winter programing for adults, youth and children from Monday, January 3 to Monday, January 17, 2022 as a safety measure to protect our clients and staff. As a result, winter programming will be extended for two weeks longer than normal and finish on Friday, April 1st, 2022.
For the first two weeks of January only the Fitness Centre will be open for use, with a limit of 2 persons at any one time who must social distance and follow all screening and other safety protocols.
During the period when programming will be postponed, we will be taking the opportunity to revisit safety protocols, equipment and procedures to ensure they reflect the most up-to-date guidance from Ottawa Public Health, the City of Ottawa and the provincial Ministry of Health, given the rapidly evolving situation.
OSCA regrets the inconvenience this postponement may cause you, but believes that putting the safety of our clients and staff first is an overriding priority.
