Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre set to reopen

The Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre is set to reopen its doors after being closed for nearly three months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Red Deer College announced Tuesday that starting July 20, the fitness zone and running track will open with limited hours and capacity.

There will only be 30 people allowed in at a time, and cardio equipment will be organized with physical distancing in mind.

The fitness centre and track will be open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

The running track will be open specifically for runners between 8 and 10 a.m., Monday, Wednesday and Friday, as well as Thursday from 5 to 7 p.m.

A maximum of four people will be permitted on the running track at one time, with walking allowed during non-designated running times.

The squash courts will remain closed and there will be no drop-in or fitness classes for the time being.
