Indoor pools

City-operated indoor pools are now open, with the exception of St. James Civic Centre.

Effective September 3, 2021, proof of COVID-19 immunization is now required to visit and participate in indoor programming at City-operated pools, fitness and leisure centres, and arenas.

Residents are encouraged to book swim and fitness blocks prior to arriving, as there is no guarantee of available blocks for registration upon arrival. Blocks will be offered on a week-by-week basis and reservations can be made up to 10 p.m. the day before the pre-reserved time (space permitting). Every Thursday, another week of swim and fitness blocks will be added to what’s available for registration.

Access to lockers and change rooms/showers will be limited. Please come dressed and ready to use the pool and fitness amenities.

Customers are asked to use the self-assessment symptom checklist at the time of pre-booking, and before entering the facilities. Anyone exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms will not be allowed to enter.

For more information, see: winnipeg.ca/COVID-19.

Les piscines intérieures exploitées par la Ville sont désormais ouvertes, à l’exception de celle du centre municipal de St. James.

Depuis le 3 septembre 2021, il faut désormais une preuve d’immunisation contre la COVID-19 pour entrer dans les piscines, les centres de conditionnement physique, les centres de loisirs et les arénas que la Ville exploite, et pour participer aux programmes intérieurs qui y sont donnés.

On encourage les membres du public à réserver un bloc de natation ou de conditionnement physique avant d’arriver aux installations, car il n’y aura pas nécessairement de la place pour s’inscrire à l’improviste. Les blocs seront accessibles une semaine à la fois, et les membres du public pourront s’inscrire jusqu’à 22 h la veille (s’il y a la place). Chaque jeudi, on ajoutera une nouvelle semaine de blocs de natation et de conditionnement physique auxquels il sera possible de s’inscrire.

L’accès aux casiers et aux vestiaires/douches sera limité. Veuillez vous habiller convenablement pour utiliser la piscine et les installations de conditionnement physique avant d’arriver sur les lieux.

Les membres de la clientèle doivent lire la liste des symptômes et s’autoévaluer au moment de la réservation et avant d’entrer dans l’installation. Les personnes qui ont des symptômes de la COVID-19 ne seront pas admises.

Visitez winnipeg.ca/virusCOVID-19 pour en savoir plus.

Until further notice all City of Winnipeg Indoor Pool saunas will remain closed due to COVID 19 restrictions.
