AN IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM THE COLUMBUS CENTRE MANAGEMENT AND BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Amid uncertain times, and out of an abundance of caution, please be advised that effective immediately, the temporary suspension of our Columbus Centre Athletic Club on-site operations will be extended until January 1, 2021.
During this interim period, we will undertake a review to determine how best to move forward, including considering a modified reopening in accordance with public health guidelines, or a continued suspension of operations, should circumstances warrant it.
This was a difficult decision to make and we sincerely regret the inconvenience that this may cause; however, in light of the continued challenges presented by the COVID-19 public health crisis, the health and safety of our members, staff and community at large, must remain our top priority.
This is a temporary closure, and we fully intend to return to operation on January 2nd, providing the Government health authorities allow resumption. To stay connected with our athletic members during this time, we will continue the live, online fitness classes, and we are also exploring opportunities to offer additional services at the Columbus Centre, as well.
Please note that at present, this closure will not impact our dance, art or music programs.
Membership fees will not be charged during this period and any credits will be honoured.
We greatly appreciate the continued understanding and support of the Columbus Centre and Villa Charities communities as we work together through these unprecedented times.
