Millet implements Restriction Exemption Program

Which recreation facilities within the County of Wetaskiwin are requiring vaccines for access?

On Sept. 23, 2021 the Town of Millet announced that they will be implementing the provincial Restriction Exemption Program for three Millet locations: the Millet Agriplex, the Millet Community Hall and the Millet Fire Hall.

As of Thursday individuals over the age of 12 wishing to access these facilities will be required to provide proof of vaccination, medical exemption, or a negative PCR or rapid test which must be privately-paid for and completed within the last 72 hours.

However City of Wetaskiwin facilities including the Manluk Centre: Wetaskiwin Regional Aquatics & Fitness decided to not implement the Restriction Exemption Program and follow updated COVID-19 provincial restrictions instead.

As a result of this the following restrictions are in place for the Manluk Centre:

• Capacity restricted to 1/3 fire code occupancy;

• Attendees must be with household members only, or 2 close contacts if they live alone;

• Masks and two-metre physical distancing is required in all public areas;

• Masks can be removed when participating in a physical activity (ie. Swimming, gym etc.);

• Indoor one-on-one training and solo activities are allowed with 3 metre physical distancing.

Group programming, classes and public skating including shinny will not be permitted while these restrictions are in place.

In Leduc County, the Leduc Recreation Centre and select City of Leduc run facilities have also decided to implement the provincial Restriction Exemption Program.
