COVID-19 & Recreation

Due to the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the Town of Ladysmith, and our ability to provide programs and services to our residents, we have developed COVID-19 safety procedures and protocols to gradually restore services. This process is ongoing and will be guided by information and advice from health authorities, other levels of government, WorkSafeBC, and other stakeholder groups such as the BC Recreation & Parks Association (BCRPA), Lifesaving Society of BC, VIA Sport BC and provincial and national sport governing bodies.

As such, we are pleased to offer a limited selection of low-risk activities for all age groups.  Activities offered may be scaled up or down based on demand and public safety and may be in different locations to allow for adequate physical distancing. All activities must be pre-registered and will follow strict guidelines to ensure the health and safety of both patrons and staff. 

For more information on how our Fall programs will work with new COVID-19 safety protocols, please see the below documents.
