RSC’S COVID-19 FALL/WINTER PROCEDURES

Our 2020//21 season is one of the most challenging seasons we will face as an organization. High demand mixed with appropriate health and safety measures to compensate for the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic will mean attention to detail, proactive measures and dynamic structure which will be adapted based on Provincial guidelines and Ottawa Public Health.

We appreciate everyone’s patience as we put this document together and will be working with clients, user groups and staff to ensure standards are maintained and adjusted where appropriate.

General Protocols

  • We ask that anyone showing signs or symptoms of COVID-19 please stay home.
  • While on RSC property, you MUST adhere to OPH’s guidelines of 6 feet physical distancing between yourself and others.
  • Masks are mandatory
  • Only the first floor is open. You can access front desk for check-in, questions, as well as purchases (Programs Registrations, Tennis Balls, Alcohol etc…) and our ground floor bathrooms. There will still be 2 Porta-Potties onsite, located in front of the Multi-Sport Dome. We suggest you come dressed to play, as there will be no changerooms.
  • Drinking Water: Please come prepared for your games with your own drinking water.
  • For the time being, RSC is accepting Debit or Credit (Mastercard/Visa) payments, NO CASH.
  • Our RSC Ambassadors will be on site to show you how to get to your court. We ask that you adhere to their instructions in order to maximize court transitions.
  • All Staff will be screened on site at the beginning of their shift.

 

Outdoor/Dome Flow Management 

Multi-Sport Dome

Maximum Occupancy: 50 (including staff, volunteers, and sport participants)

Air Circulation: We have had our entire facility tested for air quality and the report shows our domes have 100% fresh air cycled in every 1.5 to 3 hours. The fact that it is fresh air cycled in and not recycled air makes this indoor dome facility better than most buildings.

Cleaning: We are committed to sanitizing the door and other touch-points in the dome at every game rotation.

  • Masks are MANDATORY approaching the dome, inside the dome, right up to, and immediately following the completion of your sport. This includes outside the dome in any covered space such as walkways or tents.
  • Masks are strongly encouraged, but not mandatory when taking part in an activity.
  • Hand sanitizing stations will be stocked and available at the outer entrance to the dome, as well as at the exit before leaving. Sanitizing hands is MANDATORY for both entering and exiting the dome.
  • The flow of traffic inside the dome moves in a counter-clockwise direction to reach your respective court as well as when exiting the dome.
  • Only one person is permitted per section of the revolving door at a time.
  • Please do not arrive more than 10-minutes before your time of play (to prevent overcrowding) and no less than 2 minutes before your game (to prevent late arrivals).
  • Maintain 6ft distancing whenever possible when you enter or exit the dome. We ask that you respect this distancing when participating in your activity.
  • RSC will be sanitizing touch-points in the dome as well as the entrance door at every game-rotation.
  • Please limit your personal belongings as the change rooms and lockers are closed.
  • Boots and jackets will be stored next to the court you are playing on. Please keep wet boots along the carpeted areas or along the blue tiles.

  • All courts must be vacated before the next groups can enter the dome.
  • A maximum of 4 people are permitted in the airlock at at a time (masks must be worn)
  • Please limit the amount of personal belongings as the change rooms and lockers continue to be closed.
