COVID Protocols

The safety of the public and our staff is paramount in our plans for providing the use of our facility at this time.  The re-opening of the Nick Smith Centre will see the facility operate in four zones – Community Pool, Community Hall, Bert Hall Arena and Glenn Arthur Arena. Users will use different entry and exit points unique for each zone of the facility, never crossing from one zone into another.

As of October 1, 2020 all elements of the facility – Community Pool, Community Hall, Bert Hall Arena and Glenn Arthur Arena – are now fully open. Schedules and program offerings still vary – some operate with reduced capacity while others have yet to resume at this time. We continue to consult with the Renfrew County Health Unit on their recommendations for moving into further openings and additional program offerings.

All programming and facility rentals must be registered for in advance through the online portal or by calling the office at 613-623-7301. Drop-ins will not be permitted.

As per the Renfrew County Health Unit’s recommendations, many changes have been put in place to ensure the safety of our staff and users. Residents are asked to review all information on facility access and protocols before their visit (see below):
