Halton Hills Gymnastic Centre – Closures update
May 15th, 2020 – 2:00 pm
The Ontario Government has announced it's list of businesses that will be able to open as part of the Phase 1 plan. Gymnastics has been given the go ahead to re-open competitive training as of next week. HHGC will be working very hard over the next couple of weeks to make sure we follow the guidlines and have the proper procedures in place to open our doors and ensure the safety of all our athletes and staff.
A re-open date has not been set yet but we are working on it. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
April 4th, 2020 update
First and foremost, the safety and wellbeing of our gymnasts, families, staff and coaches remain our top priority. At this time, the public health risk still remains relatively low according to the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). However, based on the declaration of the World Health Organization that COVID-19 is a pandemic and the decision to close all public schools in Ontario including those of the Halton District School Board, the Halton Hills Gymnastics Centre is taking swift and decisive action to protect our community and help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
In consultation with our senior staff and Board Executive we have made the difficult but necessary decision to suspend all programs and activities from March 14th – May 4th, 2020.
As a non-profit organization that exists for the benefit of our community, HHGC has already taken many extra precautions and steps to mitigate the spread of this disease. This includes extensive cleaning of our facility, installation of additional hand sanitizers and educating our members in safe hygiene practices while at the gym. It is important that everyone do their part in slowing the spread of COVID-19.
HHGC will make every effort to respond to individual calls and e-mails. However, due to the major disruption in service, the volume of customer inquiries and extensive planning required to suspend programs and communicate to participants, response times for inquires will be much longer than usual.
Parents of HHGC gymnasts will receive personal e-mails containing information about the status of their specific program when applicable.
We deeply appreciate your understanding as we navigate the challenging circumstances related to COVID-19. We will continue to monitor this evolving situation and communicate updates as they become available.
