Splash Pool

An Update Regarding the Splash Pool 2020 Operations & Covid-19 – May 5, 2020

At this time, much remains uncertain as we prepare for our 2020 swim season. We have had many inquiries and questions on whether our facility will be open and running this summer and wanted to provide an update regarding the Town of Beausejour’s Splash Pool and Covid-19.

The decision has been made to cancel swimming lesson registration, originally scheduled for May 14, 2020. We are still unsure if this will be rescheduled at a later date or if lessons will be cancelled this season altogether. This will largely depend on when the Facility is able to open.

In addition, opening the pool for May 30, 2020 as originally planned will no longer occur. As per Manitoba’s Phased Approached created by the Government of Manitoba, Public Swimming / Pools are listed under "Future Phases” and there is no expected or pre-determined date of when these facilities may reopen. To read more, please visit: https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/restoring/future-phases.html

Plans for opening the pool and about swimming lessons will be re-evaluated on June 1, 2020 as we receive more guidance and updates from the Province on moving forward. The Town of Beausejour has been in continuous conversations with government and health authorities, as well as other Aquatic Facilities across Canada since the onset of COVID-19. We ensure you that we will update you as we are able with regards to the reopening of the Splash Pool. We will only open when the health agencies say it is safe to do so. Continued closures isn't news anyone wants to hear; however, it is in everyone's best interest. We all need to do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19 for everyone's health and safety.

An Update Regarding the Splash Pool 2020 Operations & Covid-19 - April 14, 2020

At this time, much is uncertain as we prepare for our 2020 swim season. We have had many inquiries and questions on whether our facility will be open and running this summer and wanted to provide an update regarding the Town of Beausejour’s Splash Pool and Covid-19.

At this time, we continue to be hopeful that we will be able to open the pool but cannot be guaranteed at this time if our facility will open as planned at the start of June, later in the season or not at all. Rest assured, we are continuing to monitor the situation and will provide an update on May 3, 2020 on whether the original Swimming Lesson Registration date of May 14, 2020 will be continuing, postponed or cancelled.

The Town of Beausejour has been in continuous conversations with government and health authorities, as well as other Aquatic Facilities across Canada since the onset of COVID-19. We will only open when the health agencies say it is safe to do so. Continued closures isn't news anyone wants to hear; however, it is in everyone's best interest. We all need to do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19 for everyone's health and safety.

Thank you & Stay Safe.

COVID-19 and the Town of Beausejour's Recreation Facilities (Sun Gro Centre)

Effective March 18, 2020 the Sun Gro Centre, including Curling Club will be CLOSED to the public. The office will remain open Monday-Friday but will only be assisting individuals via phone (204) 268-9266 and email sungro@townofbeausejour.com. The closure will remain in effect until announced otherwise. Updates will be posted here as they become available. 


COVID-19 Planning and Preparedness 

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve rapidly worldwide with more countries reporting cases and an overall increase in case numbers. Health Authorities at international, national and local levels continue to monitor, gather information, assess risk and respond.  Manitoba announced its first laboratory-confirmed presumptive positive COVID-19 cases on March 12.

 
As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, we all have a role to play in slowing its spread and minimizing its impact on our health care system and in our communities.
 
Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living is recommending that Manitobans:

  • minimize prolonged (more than 10 minutes) close (less than two meters/ six feet) contact between other individuals in public,
  • avoid greetings that involve touching such as handshakes,
  • disinfect frequently used surfaces,
  • follow public health advice related to self-monitoring and self-isolation if you have traveled or have been exposed to someone ill with the virus, and
  • consider avoiding travel, crowded places and events, especially if you are at higher risk (e.g. seniors and those with underlying medical conditions)
  • cancel or postponing any large-scale events with more than 250 attendees (this will help reduce prolonged (more than 10 minutes), close (less than two meters) contact between other individuals in public).

We will continue to update you as we receive more information, and we will do so on this page. We thank you for your patience.
