ACTIVITIES in the face of COVID-19
Updated: 17 July 2020
The province and city are moving to re-open / relaunch outdoor (Stage 1) and indoor activities (Stage 2) under specific guidance. The FLC Board has passed a number of resolutions that affect activities to protect our members in line with Provincial re-opening guidelines.
ACTIVITY SPECIFIC COVID-19 PLAN:
"Activities must prepare a plan outlining how their Activity proposes to comply with Alberta Government COVID-19 Guidelines and submit it to the COVID-19 Approval Committee acting on behalf of the Board for approval. The plan must be approved by the COVID-19 Approval Committee before an Activity may resume." (FLC BOARD resolution 11-July-2020)
- The Approval committee comprises of board members Albert Herscovitch, Debbie Harris, and Violet Smith.
- Each activity needs its own plan, since each activity has its unique aspects, such as venue, room size, room access (for indoor activities), etc. Once an activity has an approved plan, they will publish the plan and let their members know when the events or classes can resume. Check the specific activity web page on the website.
- Each activities' plan must include a COVID-19 Screening Checklist that needs to be read and agreed to by all participants before each event or class.
- As of 11 July, Golf and Cycling have re-opened. Golf players must conform to the procedures for each golf course. The Cycling club have posted their Modified Rules for Club Rides and their Covid19 Screening Checklist on the ride sign up web page.
COVID-19 SREENING CHECKLIST:
"To comply with Government guidelines and our insurers’ requirements, the COVID-19 Screening Checklist must be reviewed by the ride/walk leader, instructor or class representative with each participant before each ride, outing or class and record of participants’ names, the event date, and their responses retained for a period of six weeks to facilitate tracing if necessary. Only posting the Screening Tool on a web page is not sufficient. This procedure will be in effect until the Board determines it is no longer necessary." (FLC BOARD resolution 11-July-2020)

Each of the facilities that the FLC Seniors Club uses (Trico, Willowridge, Lake Bonavista, Acadia Recreation Complex) is reviewing their own procedures and are re-opening in compliance with government guidance. See each facilities' web site (links below) for their specific information.
