Lacombe Memorial Centre to relax more restrictions July 2nd

General public access to the common areas is still not recommended

As part of the second phase of the provincial relaunch plan, the Lacombe Memorial Centre (LMC) will be available for more event bookings beginning July 2nd.

General public access to the common areas is still not recommended.

Physical distancing and disinfection protocols are in effect. Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms, recent international travel, or recent close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 are asked to not enter the facility.

The facility has posted new procedures for entering, using and leaving the LMC. Staff will set up rooms in a modified way to adhere to provincial health requirements, and occupancy limits are updated for all rooms as well as one-way traffic measures in specified areas. The public will have limited access to the washrooms, and the City must still discourage browsing or lingering in the building. Event attendees are asked to arrive no more than five minutes before the scheduled start time.

Bookings will be arranged to stagger start, break and end times from others and to manage arrivals, restroom use, and departures to limit crowding and prevent cross contamination. Please respect all wall gates, dividers and stanchions in place to direct visitors. To enquire about pre-booking a room rental, call 403-782-6668 ext. 1.

Other amenities in the building are open now, accessible using the LMC’s north western doors at the parking lot, or the south patio doors from Lest We Forget Park.

Anna Maria’s Café hours are 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday-Friday, plus special events; Lacombe & District FCSS on the second floor is open for appointments by calling 403-782-6637 (see www.lacombefcss.net) and the Mary C. Moore Library will reopen July 2nd with reduced hours, see www.lacombelibrary.com for up to date information.

Please note that due to the ongoing public health crisis, the above information is subject to change. For more information, call 403-782-6668 ext. 1.
