The easing of COVID-19 restrictions is bringing arts, sports, fitness and children’s activities back to Port Coquitlam civic facilities.
Many registered and drop-in programs will resume in September, with additional programs added in the fall, according to the city.
And soon, you can start registering for these offerings.
Registration for September programs will open at 8 a.m. on July 27 and July 30 for the general public.
For programs opening later in the fall, a second registration session will open at 8 a.m. Sept. 14 for residents and Sept. 17 for the general public.
Many programs are on offer, including activities for early learning and preschool kids, children ages 5-12, youth ages 11-18, arts and cultural programs for adults, swimming, skating, fitness and sports.
As well, racquetball and squash courts are gradually reopening with drop-in and registered sports at Hyde Creek Recreation Centre and Port Coquitlam Community Centre.
For more information and registration, you’re encouraged to visit the city of Port Coquitlam’s website.
Meanwhile, a number of COVID-19-related efforts are in place to keep people safe.
While masks are no longer required indoors, they continue to be recommended for those age 12 and older who are not fully vaccinated.
Cleaning will continue with guidance from the provincial health officer.
Closed facilities and amenities are set to gradually reopen with fewer restrictions to movement and access while maintaining physical distance when possible, according to the city.
“The community’s patience is appreciated as staff continue to work to refine procedures for a safe reintroduction of more services,” a news release explains.
