Maintaining a safe facility that can be used by all members is a priority for the Edmonton Squash Club. We continue to work within health and safety guidelines set by Health Canada, Alberta Health, and municipal governments. The objective is to protect the health of our member community; we all have a part in this.
The City of Edmonton has again regulated the wearing of masks in public places. Effective Friday, Sept 3, 2021, wearing masks will be required on the club premises when entering and moving about between courts and locker areas. Masks are not required on-court, in the showers/steam room, or when seated in the restaurant area.
Required proof of vaccination is gaining momentum. Several members have asked for a policy regarding vaccination requirements to enter the club or to register for a program such as leagues, lessons, and clinics. We are following Squash Alberta’s lead as we develop fair policies for the sake of all members. We are encouraging all staff and coaches to be vaccinated as part of our commitment to the safety of all.
In the meantime, we are encouraging a social etiquette to voluntarily disclose your vaccination status when entering the court. Note that this is voluntary and intended to build a community of trust where individuals can make informed decisions related to playing or not.
Lastly, individuals should not enter the club if they are experiencing flu/cold symptoms. Our staff are authorized to request you to leave immediately if symptomatic individuals are identified. This is for the health safety of others, vaccinated or not.
