Covid 19 Update

Hi Everyone,

The Province announced on Wednesday that certain businesses, including gyms and could reopen if they are ready and choose to do so starting on June 5th.

Squash NS worked with Squash Canada on the preparation of National recommendations for reopening squash for both players and Facilities. These were released on 5 May 2020, and can be found in the Squash Canada Newsletter.

We have been working to update these to reflect the provincial context. We submitted a draft to Sport NS for review yesterday as part of the review process that was announced yesterday. We also received a copy of the Squash Moncton COVID Operating Plan today, and our plans are being amended based on some of the practical guidance contained within and the guidance received from the province.

As soon as they are approved, the board will be convened to approve them and share them with facilities across the province to facilitate their reopening.

In any case, given the current contact and gathering limits, it is expected that play will be limited to solo practice, and practice/play within a family and its contact bubble until these restrictions are relaxed.

More news to follow as soon as it is available.
