Following yesterday’s public health announcement, here are the implications for Trout Lake’s facilities and programs.

Fitness Centre closure

The Trout Lake Fitness Centre and sauna are closed as of 11:59 p.m. on December 22, 2021 to January 18, 2022.

  • You can inquire at our front desk about suspending your Flexi-pass.

The rationale of the order for sauna & steam rooms are:

  • Public health guidelines include ensuring good ventilation and these spaces are low ventilation areas.
  • Within these spaces, due to humidly and high heat, masks are not worn.
  • The Vancouver Coastal Health region currently has a current transmission factor of over 2 (highly contagious).
  • Pools are chlorinated environments (hot tub included) while saunas and steam rooms are not.

Programming and rentals

The following impact for Trout Lake Community Centre programs and facility rentals are in effect from tomorrow December 23, 2021 to January 18, 2022.

  • All community centre programs will CONTINUE as usual at this time.
  • Sport and religious based room rentals ARE allowed.


  • SOCIAL RENTALS are CANCELLED until January 18, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. and staff will be reaching out as soon as possible to inform patrons and process the refunds.
  • SPECIAL EVENTS are CANCELLED until January 18, 2022 at 11:59 p.m.

Ice rink

  • All programs and public skates will continue as normal.


  • From December 23, 2021 to January 18, 2022 tournaments are NOT allowed.

Extreme weather response

For the period of December 24, 2021 to January 1, 2022, extreme weather response will not be impacted by the health order. The risk of injury and death from cold weather take priority over COVID precautions, therefore there are no capacity limits in our lobbies.

This also extends to pets but owners must make sure pets are well behaved, under control (leashed) and not making a mess, but if they do, owners MUST clean up after their pets.
