On December 11, 2020, the Ontario Government announced that York Region and Windsor-Essex will move into the grey zone (i.e. lockdown) of the province’s COVID-19 framework.

Effective 12:01 a.m. on Monday, December 14, 2020, gyms and fitness centres in York and Windsor-Essex must close, among other restrictions.

See where your region is placed in the framework.

These restrictions only apply to kinesiologists who own/operate or work at a facility for indoor sports and indoor recreational fitness activities. If a kinesiologist owns such a facility and wishes to use the space for one client at a time (i.e. no indoor group classes or multiple clients at time), this is permitted so long as the College’s guidance is followed. You can provide services virtually.

General COVID-19 reminders

All kinesiologists are reminded to review the College’s COVID-19 resources. Below are some useful reminders:

We understand that this is a challenging time, and that guidance is changing quickly. We appreciate your patience as we monitor and interpret guidance and, most importantly, your unwavering commitment to providing safe care to your patients/clients.

If you have any questions, please contact Danielle Lawrence, the College’s Practice Advisor, via email.
