Phase 1 will include reduced hours of operation, reduced activities, reduced number of participants, dedicated time slots for participation, scheduled 15 minutes buffer between time slots, online pre-registration required for fitness room and pool use (no drop-ins) and a mid-day shut-down for enhanced cleaning protocols.

Phase 1 opportunities include access to the fitness room, lane swimming, aquafit and public swimming sessions. Patrons may pre-register now at www.summerland.ca/recreation or by phoning during office hours, Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
