NEWS RELEASE
CITY OF ORILLIA
*************************
As part of gradual return to recreation, the City of Orillia is offering drop-in programs starting Oct. 19, 2020.

Drop-in programs will look a little different this fall as all participants will be required to pre-register for their desired drop-in program. Pre-registration is now open for drop-in programs.
 
“We are excited to provide safe recreational opportunities to the community to help with physical and mental health during these challenging times. The new process to register for our drop-in programs will allow participants the flexibility to choose which drop-in programs they wish to attend in advance,” said Megan Visser, Recreation Program Supervisor.
 
Drop-in programs, such as public skating, will require pre-registration to ensure the proper contact tracing occurs and that the City remains within facility occupancy limits. Participants can register up to 24 hours in advance of the drop-in program they wish to attend. Drop-ins will be open for registration one-week in advance on the City’s SUN system.
 
Prior to COVID-19, people wishing to participate in drop-in programs could show up at the program to participate without pre-registering.
 
New COVID-19 safety measures are in place for all City of Orillia recreation programs, including drop-in programs. Participants will be screened and required to sign a waiver prior to entering any municipal recreation facilities. Participants must wear a mask in common areas and are permitted to arrive only 15 minutes prior to their program.
 
Information regarding program safety protocols, instructions on how to sign-up for programs, drop-in times, or a FUN Pass, can be found at Orillia.ca/fun.
