We are committed to sharing the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 with seniors and our community partners. We update this website, Facebook Page, Twitter, and phone line regularly. Don't forget to join our Weekly E-newsletter List (link below) for the latest news and updates in your inbox.
COVID-19 updates: Effective immediately, the City of Edmonton requires all participants for in-person exercises classes and programs to be physically distanced by 3 FEET, and not congregate in the lobby areas, before and after classes. Please continue to sanitize your hands regularly, and wear a mask at the centre when not participating in a class or dining in the cafe. Most importantly, get your booster shot, if you have not done so already, and stay home if you are sick.
Mandatory Masks Reminder: As mandated by the Government of Alberta, wearing a mask in public facilities, including MWSA is required at all times (with the exception of when eating/drinking, and during exercise classes and sports activities). Please ensure that your mask is worn above the nose, fully covering the mouth, and under the chin. Thank you for your cooperation in helping keep our community safe.
At the time of entry, all visitors must provide proof of vaccination, dated at least 14 days before visiting MWSA.
Members who already have had their vaccination statuses updated will only need to fob in at the Front Desk, i.e scan their card (plastic card with barcode) at the computer station, and not required to bring in their proof each time they visit MWSA
Non-members will need to bring their proof of vaccination each and every time they visit MWSA.
The 2nd Floor Cafe is open for dine-in and takeout (proof of vaccination required)
If you are not able to show proof of vaccination, or cannot wear a face mask, please stay home and participate in our online programming. The health and safety of the members and guests are a top priority. Please stay home (and isolate yourself) if you are sick or have any COVID-19 symptoms. Let's all do our part in keeping each other safe. Thank you for your cooperation.
