Possible Exposure To COVID-19 at Brandon's Community Sportsplex In October 2020

November 6, 2020

Brandon, MB – Out of an abundance of caution, the City of Brandon would like to inform residents that a possible exposure to COVID-19 was reported to us via a member of the public.

The individual was at Brandon’s Community Sportsplex in the Ice Arena during the following times:

  • Tuesday, October 27 from 8:55 p.m. - 10:45 p.m.
  • Thursday, October 29 from 1:05 p.m. - 2:25 p.m.
  • Friday, October 30 from 6:35 a.m. - 7:55 a.m.

Once notified of the possible exposure, additional sanitization of the facility took place.

Residents who may have been at the Sportsplex Facility at the above noted times can find more information about how to self-monitor for symptoms or how to get tested for COVID-19 at https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/updates/testing.html.

Brandon’s Community Sportsplex is currently only allowing one pre-registered user group at a time in the arena and racquetball areas with no crossover between user groups. Sanitization practices are being followed between each user group.

As it has since the outset of its response to this global pandemic, the City of Brandon adheres to a high level of COVID-19 prevention protocols in its workplaces and public spaces, including, but not limited to: mandatory handwashing/sanitizing upon entrance to all civic facilities, the installation of Plexiglass barriers at all public service counters, the establishment of safe physical distancing protocols in its facilities, mandatory face coverings, and extra cleaning of commonly-touched surfaces. More information on the City of Brandon’s COVID-19 response can be found at https://www.brandon.ca/covid-19-updates.

At this time, this is all the information the City of Brandon can release. If more information can be released in the future, we will do so.
