Easing of Restrictions (Effective March 15, 2022)

The Province has released new public health orders effective March 15, 2022 in which Province will be lifting the mandatory mask requirement for indoor spaces.  In link step with this decision, Dakota CC will also be suspending our mandatory mask policy to align with this current change.   

The DCC strongly recommends individuals continue to wear masks to reduce the possibility of COVID transmission, especially those who are at higher risk for severe outcomes related to infection. The DCC will continue to do the following to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID:

  • Fitness class sizes will continue to be held in spaces that can accommodate physical distancing
  • Encourage visitors to respect the basic guidelines for reducing the risk of transmission, including:
    • Anyone displaying COVID symptoms not to attend the facility
    • Cough into your sleeve
    • Frequent hand cleaning with disinfectant or warm water and soap
    • Practice physical distancing

 In addition, Public Health continues to recommend people isolate in the following situations:

  • People with symptoms should stay home and isolate for five days after symptoms start until they have no fever and other symptoms have improved over the past 24 hours
  • Individuals who have tested positive but do not develop symptoms should isolate for five days from the date of the test
  • Individuals should wear a well-fitting, well-made mask if they must have contact with other people while ill or when their isolation is finished for 10 days after the onset of symptoms or test date if asymptomatic
  • People who have symptoms or test positive should avoid non-essential visits with higher-risk people or at higher-risk settings for 10 days after the onset of their symptoms or test date if asymptomatic

Capacity Restrictions

While capacity limits for spectators attending indoor recreational events have lifted, please note some sporting organizations may still require limits to the number of spectators attending their events. Spectators are encouraged to check with the sporting organizations (i.e. Hockey MB, Volleyball MB, Manitoba Basketball Association) for details.

Please note the DCC has a zero tolerance harassment policy. Any belligerence towards staff or volunteers will result in the offending person being asked to leave the facility.
