Provincial Health Order Update November 20-2020

Hello NCC Members,

The Board of Directors and our Manager have reviewed yesterday’s orders from the Provincial Health Officer and Curl BC’s guidance on the order. As a result, we are implementing, effective immediately, the following changes at our club:

Spectators are not permitted in the Nanaimo Curling Centre.

This includes parents, guardians and family members of our junior curlers, 5th and 6th players of a team, and members of a bye team not curling that draw. Only players actively curling in a league that starts within 30 minutes will be allowed to enter the building.

The upstairs Canada 150 Room, the Top of the House Lounge, and the Livewire Café are closed.

After your game, please exit the building.

These changes are to be in effect until midnight December 7 unless the orders are extended by the PHO.

Curling itself continues here at the NCC. The changes implemented are a two week pause in our social interactions. NCC has a robust safety plan in place and has been ahead of the curve on items such as requiring masks while on the ice. Please always continue to keep 2m apart and wear your masks while in the building.

We feel truly fortunate that we can curl in these difficult times. Protecting the health and safety of our members is always our top priority. By pausing all off-ice socializing at the club, we are limiting the risk to our members and doing our part to reduce the spread of the virus.

If you have any questions or comments please contact me at president@nanaimocurlingclub.ca.

See you on the ice.

Brian McRory
President, Nanaimo Curling Club
