This decision to close our facilities at this time is related to the COVID-19 situation and, as a result of the City of Winnipeg’s recommendation to all Winnipeg community centres to close, following their announcement yesterday that all City of Winnipeg operated recreation facilities, libraries, etc. will close March 16, 2020.
This closure will result in the immediate postponement of all programs, services and rentals at our facility until further notice. We are asking for everyone’s patience and understanding, especially those who have valid and continuing registrations or memberships at our Centre, as we continue to assess the impact of this situation through these uncertain and ever-changing times.
As the situation progresses, we will be providing more details in terms of next steps as more information comes known. We want to assure all our patrons that we value your commitments to Sturgeon Heights Community Centre and will do our best to honour our commitments to you when we can open our doors again. Through this time, it is expected that our staff will be working hard to address the immediate needs/impacts related to this closure and to continue to plan for eventual reopening and resumption of rentals, programs, and services, when the time comes.
All ongoing rentals, programs, and services that are advance paid are being placed on hold for everyone as of March 17, 2020. Staff will be reaching out shortly to those with facility rental agreements, or outright cancelled events/programs scheduled to take place during the Mar 17 – Apr 15/20 period to discuss next steps or process refunds as necessary.
Thank you again for all your patience and understanding during this time. Please continue to refer to our website and Facebook page for the latest information concerning SHCC. Or feel free to call the club anytime at 204-832-5991.
