We understand residents love to have our amenities including fitness centres and swimming pools open. However, we must ensure we have all health and safety precautions and processes in place before we open our amenities. We will only open our amenities when we can ensure we are meeting or exceeding the expectations for re-opening by both provincial and federal health authorities. This is for everyone’s safety.
We continue to perform enhanced cleaning procedures to protect the health and safety of our residents. While all Midwest staff have adapted these practices, you as a resident have a very important role in helping us maintain the Midwest Standard.
While using ANY shared amenities, residents must follow the Midwest Standard:
- Residents must use the hand sanitizer made available to sanitize their hands before entering and after leaving the shared amenity.
- Before and after each use, residents must spray and wipe down fitness equipment using the AIRX15 disinfectant spray bottles provided.
- In Edmonton, you are required to wear a mask in all common areas while not engaged in physical activity.
Fitness facilities & other amenities will now be open for fully vaccinated residents only as per Alberta’s Public Health State of Emergency Declaration. To gain access to these amenities, residents must show proof of vaccination to the community leasing office. All FOBS will be deactivated for amenity access starting September 16th, 2021 until proof of full vaccination is shown. Because of these restrictions, please do not let other residents into the amenity areas if they do not have a FOB.
