Memo_Reopening_SALC_Programs_July_2021

The Province released this document July 20, 2021.  Please use the link above to learn about the challenges of reopening a Senior Active Living Centre during COVID-19.

The Board of Directors recognizes the desire and need to return to activities and programs at the Centre.  To this end, a re-opening committee has been working hard behind the scenes to ensure G50+ follows the Provincial Guidelines for safely reopening and are looking forward to seeing you in September.

The Board thanks you for your patience and understanding as they ensure your safety!

Younger age groups will be announced as we move forward.

When you book your appointments through the provincial booking system, you will receive a confirmation code. Please bring this code with you when you go to your appointments. If you do not have a confirmation code, your appointments were not successfully completed. Please revisit the provincial booking system or call 1-833-943-3900 to book your appointments and receive your confirmation code.

Please sign up for the City of Ottawa’s COVID-19 vaccination updates e-subscription to get the latest updates on when the vaccine becomes available to these groups. You can also share this information with friends and family to ensure they get the latest information straight from the source.

Transportation to COVID-19 vaccination clinics

  • Residents who are eligible for vaccination are encouraged to make a transportation plan in advance of their appointment. This could include asking a family member or caregiver to provide you with a ride to your designated vaccination clinic.
  • If you are a Para Transpo user, you can book your ride to the vaccination clinic through the COVID-19 Vaccination Trip Reservation telephone line at 613-842-3600.
  • If a transportation option is not available to you, you can request a ride to and from the clinic through Ottawa Community Transportation after you have booked your appointment. Ottawa Community Transportation will contact you directly.
  • If you or someone you know require transportation but do not have online access, please contact 211 and they will help complete the transportation request form on your behalf. Please have your vaccine booking confirmation number available when calling.

 

COVID-19 protocols are in place to ensure the safety of the rider and the driver, and wearing a mask is mandatory.
