Preparing to play

Do not play if you or your playing partner(s) are feeling unwell or exhibiting any symptoms, such as fever, cough or difficulty breathing. Wash your hands with soap and water, and bring hand sanitizer approved by Health Canada (DIN or NPN) with you. Clean your equipment. Consider wearing a mask while you play if you can't maintain two metres of physical distance. Avoid commonly touched surfaces; however, when you must, wash your hands and disinfect any surfaces you have been in contact with, including door handles, gates and benches.

Play

Singles play is recommended. Doubles play is permitted as long as participants are from the same household. Be sure to arrive just before your scheduled time to prevent queuing or gathering. No sharing of equipment (e.g. racquets, discs). Respect physical distancing of two metres with other players at all times – on and off the playing surface.

For racquet sports, each player should use their own can of balls, with distinct markings or numbers for each player. As much as possible, use your racquet or foot to pass a ball to another player.

After Play

Wash your hands with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer approved by Health Canada (DIN or NPN). Leave the playing area immediately after you complete play.

Parks and Playgroundsopen

Every person who visits a park or outdoor playground must follow public health orders in order to prevent the transmission of COVID-19.

People exhibiting signs of illness should not enter parks or playgrounds. If you think you may be sick, use the Government of Saskatchewan's self-assessment tool for COVID-19 and follow the subsequent directions.

People not from the same household must maintain two metres of physical distancing at all times. Limit gathering with other people when entering and leaving the park/playground and supervising children playing (e.g. paths, benches, picnic areas).

Group sizes must comply with the public gathering restrictions.

Ensure frequent hand hygiene for everyone before, during and after outdoor play.

If an area is busy, such as playground equipment or park space, come back when it's not as busy or use another play area.

Do not share toys or sports equipment between groups.

Practise proper hand hygiene:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water or, when unavailable, with hand sanitizer.
  • Refrain from touching your face.
  • Carry and use hand sanitizers approved by Health Canada (DIN or NPN number) before and after using playground and other recreational equipment.

Consider limiting children and other members of your household to only visiting playgrounds close to your home. This will help limit the number of people your family may come into contact with during the visit.

Mask use is not required, but non-medical masks (e.g. cloth or other materials) are an additional measure you can take to protect people around you when physical distancing cannot be maintained or is unpredictable. Guidelines for cloth masks are available.

Campgroundsopen

Overnight stays and limited-term campsites may be occupied at 100 per cent capacity, subject to change based on Public Health Orders.

Campground operators will be required to undertake the following actions:

Enhanced cleaning and disinfection practices are undertaken at central dump stations and water fill stations. Drinking water fountains should be closed. Enhanced cleaning and disinfecting efforts are undertaken in campground sites and in all public/shared spaces and equipment (e.g. picnic tables, garbage cans, hydrants and other high-touch surfaces). The maintenance of public areas/shared spaces must be conducted in accordance with the public health order and follow the guidelines for environmental cleaning and disinfection.

Campers exhibiting signs of illness will not be permitted.

Council Meetings

The City of Warman's council meetings and the committee of the whole meetings are continuing as scheduled. Unless otherwise stated the meetings are held at the Brian King Centre and are open to the public (physical distancing measures in place). Agendas and past minutes can be found here.


Staying Safe & Healthy

There are a few hygiene measures you can take to help protect the spread of viruses such as coronavirus.

  • wash your hands frequently using soap and water, and scrub for at least 20 seconds
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
  • cough and sneeze into your sleeve/elbow and not your hands
  • stay home if you are not feeling well to avoid spreading illness to others
  • maintain physical distancing of two metres and avoiding large groups

Call HealthLine 811 if you have recently travelled and are experiencing respiratory or flu-like symptoms.
