The Niagara-on-the-Lake Community Centre is preparing to open its doors again on March 15.
NOTL’s chief administrator Marnie Cluckie said she is “confident” town staff can keep the community centre open safely.
“Our staff is committed to providing customer service excellence in all it does and recognizes that providing accessible and safe indoor space for recreational use is a part of such service,” she said in an announcement about the plan.
“While we move forward with the cautious reopening of our community centre, we will remain vigilant and ensure we are doing all we can to protect the health and safety of facility users and town staff,” Cluckie said.
The community centre will also serve as NOTL’s site for COVID-19 vaccinations, the region announced last week.
“I am pleased to see that the region has officially announced that the community centre will be the vaccination site here in Niagara-on-the-Lake,” said Lord Mayor Disero.
“Planning and preparations for its use remains underway and staff will report back with updates as we learn more.”
She said though the province moved Niagara into the COVID red zone last week, NOTL’s emergency control group decided to delay the community centre opening until it was deemed safe to do so.
