City elects not to implement REP at Gary Moe Auto Group Sportsplex

City officials have elected to opt out of the Restrictions Exemption Program (REP) at the Gary Moe Auto Group Sportsplex (GMAGS).

The City of Lacombe consulted with a number of groups during the decision making process and after gathering feedback, the City of Lacombe has chosen to not move forward with a facility-wide REP for the GMAGS.

The decision not to implement a REP means that mandatory restrictions will remain for sports, fitness, and recreation at the GMAGS.

Measures in place for youth (under 18) sport, fitness, recreation, and performance activities include:

Indoor group classes, training, and competitions are permitted, but participants need to:

  • Screen for symptoms
  • Maintain two metres distancing, except youth while engaged in physical activity
  • Wear a mask, except youth while engaged in physical activity

Spectator attendance is restricted to 1/3 fire code capacity; attendees are limited to a single household or two close contacts if living alone and must be masked and maintain two metres physical distancing.

The following restrictions apply unless the program implements the REP:

Measures for adult (over 18) sport, fitness, and performance activities include:

• Indoor group classes and activities are not permitted

• Indoor competitions are paused except when vaccine exemptions have been granted

• Indoor one-on-one training and solo activities are allowed with three metre physical

distancing
