Dear badminton community, June 14, 2021
We are pleased to note that pursuant to the Ontario Government’s Roadmap to Reopen, Ontario moved into Step 1 on June 11, 2021. Under updated O. Reg 82/20, day camps are permitted to operate provided that they are in compliance with guidance provided by the guidance from the Chief Medical Officer of Health from time to time.
Please note that the facility operator must record the name and contact information of every member of the public who attends the facility and maintain the records for at least one month.
Please also note that indoor badminton facilities can only be open for the purpose of providing day camps. No badminton play or instruction is permitted outside of day camp offerings, and no “adult day camps” are permitted to run.
Public Health Ontario has also created two checklists to support planning and operation of day camps:
- Pre-camp Planning: COVID-19 Preparedness and Prevention for Day Camps
- Daily Camp Operations: COVID-19 Preparedness and Prevention for Day Camps
Badminton Ontario also reminds all member clubs and registered individuals, that all activities must adhere to Federal and Provincial (Ontario) legislation, as well as any municipal bylaws and facility rules in place related to COVID-19 physical distancing and public or private gatherings. Failure to abide by these federal, provincial, or municipal requirements may result in legal prosecution by government as well as denial of insurance coverage and possible disciplinary measures by Badminton Ontario.
Badminton Ontario will continue to provide updates as part of our commitment to a safe return to sport for all.
