SPAC Program Updates
Dear SPAC Members,
In these rapidly challenging times the Board of Directors, Program Director and Coaches want to make the best decisions possible for you and your athletes. Over the past week our world has been adapting to and reacting to the realities surrounding us. SPAC is no different and we need to make good decisions for our club.
SPAC is working with the resort and local authorities to monitor the spread and developments with respect to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) carefully. As always, our main objective in the program is safety, and we are approaching Coronavirus in the same manner.
In accordance with guidance we have reviewed from Health Canada, until further notice, program activities will continue as scheduled, as the risk of infection at this point in time is deemed to be "low”, this may change rapidly, however, and we will advise you if any developments effect our operations.
We would ask that you do the following so that we can keep team activities safe:
- Now and always during cold and flu season, stay home if you are sick. Encourage those you know who are sick to stay home until they no longer have symptoms. If you or a family member is feeling sick, seek medical advice, and do not go to a SPAC event.
- If you or someone you have come in contact with have symptoms or a confirmed case of Coronavirus, please advise your coaches and SPAC as soon as possible.
- Practice frequent hand hygiene and coughing/sneezing etiquette, and please emphasize this with SPAC athletes.
- If you have traveled to a region that has had high rates of infection of Coronavirus, you can reduce the risk of spreading infection by following prevention measures when returning to Canada, including self-isolation in accordance with Health Canada guidelines. We would also ask that you report any such travels to SPAC.
The ski conditions are still phenomenal, although we are adjusting our ski program we look forward to seeing everyone over the next couple weeks. Although we are having to adjust our schedule, the programming is still focused on fun and learning. Please watch your inbox as we will be updating frequently.
