September 17, 2021: Restriction Exemption Program
Businesses have been put in a terrible position to have to make a choice that the government should have made themselves. We now have to shoulder all the controversial heat on this topic for the decisions made. Decisions which were not made because owners/staff agree with any of these policies one way or another, but simply because as a fitness recreation facility there was no alternate route but to do this or close our doors.
As many of you know, the Government of Alberta unveiled new Covid-19 restrictions on September 15. In order to keep our doors open for our patrons, the Mid-Sun Community Association will implement the Restriction Exemption Program effective Monday, September 20, 2021.
If we do not implement the REP, due to restrictions put in place by the government, we would have to cancel 95% of our recreation programming and close our doors to all our renters of the facility. The only service that would be deemed allowable is our childcare programs – leaving all of our other staff laid off once again. This decision was not made lightly and if you would like further clarification or to provide feedback, we encourage you to email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
We kindly ask that all patrons visiting us at the Centre show one of the following to the Front Office Staff upon entering:
• proof of vaccination (paper or digital format accepted)
• documentation of medical exemption
• proof of negative PCR or rapid test within 72 hours of visit
Until we find an acceptable solution that will permit our staff to notate that we have seen a patron’s proof of vaccination, we ask that patrons bring proof of vaccination for every visit.
We will support full refunds for those who cannot meet the above requirements. Please do not hesitate to contact our staff at 403-254-8058 or firstname.lastname@example.org to make a refund request. If our phone line is busy, please leave us a message and we promise to get back to you.
These measures will be in place for the foreseeable future, and we thank you for your patience as we transition over the next few weeks. We remain dedicated to offering our facility and services to our patrons and hope we can keep moving forward with respect and kindness. We will not tolerate any form of harassment towards our staff. These decisions are not up to them, but they have the job of ensuring that the rules are followed.
If you have any questions or wish further clarification, please visit www.midsun.org or email email@example.com.
