Response to COVID-19: Parks & Recreation service updates
The Halifax Regional Municipality continues to monitor and respond to the rapidly evolving effects of COVID-19.
The health and wellness of residents and employees is our main priority.
Effective Tuesday, March 17 all municipally owned recreation facilities, community centres and arenas will be closed, and all programs and bookings will be suspended until further notice. While facilities will be open Monday, we encourage residents to stay home if possible and avoid facilities if they are feeling unwell or have recently travelled outside of Nova Scotia.
Further, all March Break camps are cancelled effective immediately, aligning with the decision from the Province of Nova Scotia earlier this afternoon.
Please note, for residents who were booked into a program that has been canceled, staff will be in touch in the coming weeks regarding the status of your account. We ask residents to hold off on contacting recreation staff as they continue to help support ongoing service adjustments related to preventing the spread of COVID-19.
Your ongoing understanding and support is appreciated during this time.
