COVID-19 Updates

Sinclair Park has been watching the reports of COVID-19 very carefully, and we are aware that several people in Winnipeg have tested positive for the virus. In light of this, we are taking steps to reduce the possibility of contamination at our facility. We have stepped up our cleaning procedures to include regular disinfecting of things like door handles and tables. We are also installing hand sanitizing stations outside of both of our spaces, the Gym and the MPR. Additionally, the water fountain will be turned off and unavailable for use.


Our staff have received a number of phone calls about how this will impact the sports season. At the present time, we anticipate baseball and mini soccer running as planned. In the event that the season is cancelled for any reason, or if we do not have enough participants to run mini soccer, refunds will be issued to all parents.


We have also had many events contacting us about today, about what the news means for their parties. As of right now, Sinclair Park has no intentions of cancelling anyone's parties or events. The only scenarios in which this would happen are if the government (either Federal, Provincial or Municipal) sets a limit on the number of guests that can be in attendance at an event, or if our staff become ill. Outside of those two cases, we cannot foresee us cancelling any of your events on you. In the unlikely event that this does occur, renters will have the option of either cancelling their event with a full refund, or transferring their deposit to a new date.


We also understand that there are event hosts out there who do not feel comfortable hosting their events for a number of reasons, including concern for the health of their guests, and concerns over a lack of attendance at the events. If events are choosing not to have their events, there are also two options for you. As with forced cancellations, we can find a new date for your event and transfer your deposit, or you can choose to cancel the event, although the deposit would not be refundable in this case. 


Please Note: The current stance from the provincial government is that they are recommending against gatherings of over a certain number of people. This is only a recommendation at this point, and not a mandate. Until it is legally mandated, event deposits cannot be refunded in the event of a cancellation.


We understand that the virus is making life extremely difficult for many people. We want to try and help as much as we can. Events that need to move their dates are advised to contact Shannon at either 204-586-8275 or spcc_bookings@outlook.com. We have very limited availability right now, so please let us know as soon as possible so that we can secure you a new date.


We do want to reiterate that, at the present time, we are not cancelling anyone's events, nor are we recommending that people should cancel their events. The only thing that we recommend is that people with recent exposure to a source of infection not attend the event. We are taking all possible steps to limit the possibility of our facility being exposed to the virus, and are doing all that we can to make sure that everyone's lives run as normally as possible.
