Understanding the Restriction Exemption Program

Monday, September 20, 2021


As was previously shared with the community, select City-run facilities will be participating in the provincial Restriction Exemption Program as of Monday, Sept. 20. These facilities are the Alexandra Arena, the Leduc Recreation Centre, the Maclab Theatre and our Operations Building. 

We understand you have questions about what this will look like when you arrive at the Leduc Recreation Centre. Please review the information below: 

  • You will be greeted at the entrance to the facility where a Rec Check Table will be set up. 
  • Please be prepared to provide proof of vaccination, medical exemption or a negative PCR/rapid COVID-19 test that has been privately paid for within the last 72 hours. 
  • Once past the Rec Check Table, guests will be free to move about the facility as per usual. Face masks are still required for all visitors whether they are vaccinated or not. 
  • During the initial stages of the program, please plan to arrive a little earlier than normal. We ask for patience as City employees review patrons’ individual paperwork at the door. 

Refunds 
We will process refunds upon request and appreciate your patience as our teams are fielding a number of inquiries. Please email LRC@leduc.ca or phone 780-980-7120 for assistance. 

Sports organizations and user groups 
We have been in contact with sport organizations and user groups who frequently access the facility. More information will be shared through those groups and/or the City as it is available. 

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we roll out this new process. The decision to implement the Restriction Exemption Program was made so that we can continue to provide services while protecting the health and safety of our community. We appreciate your kindness and patience with one another and our staff.
