Sport and Wellness Centre Covid-19 update  April 2021

On April 6, the Government of Alberta announced a return to Step 1 of COVID-19 restrictions due to the recent surge in positive cases and the increasing number of variant cases reported in Alberta. The latest mandatory health measures came into effect at 11:59 p.m. April 6, resulting in the temporary closure of the Syncrude Sport and Wellness Centre (SSWC). The College has decided not to continue with one-on-one fitness training permitted under Step 1 due to minimal activity, and concerns over public health. All fitness memberships will remain on hold, and no payments will be taken during the closure. Any questions can be directed to Guest Services
