UNA Old Barn Community Centre

NOTE: This plan was updated on July 2, 2021. Read the update here: Updated UNA Restart Plan

With the release of the Province of BC Restart Plan UNA staff have begun to map out the return to normal for UNA Facilities. The UNA has developed its restart plan to coincide with the provincial plan – as well as looking towards best practices from the Provincial BC Recreation and Parks Association (BCRPA) for guidance. Sector specific indoor and outdoor gathering restrictions have also been considered, as well as staffing considerations and the necessity for a gradual return to normal workplace interactions.

The UNA is planning increased services to coincide with Step 3 of the Provincial restart plan – which begins on July 1 – with a return to full services by September 7.
