Health and safety protocol at GP

In order to ensure the health and safety of our guests and staff, we are implementing new health and safety protocol in order to use the facility.

  • Upon entering the facility you will notice directional signage and area floor markings that will assist you in navigating what has changed.
  • The Fitness Centre and Aquatics entrances will be open, however, the Field House entrance (next to Airdrie Edge) remains closed.
  • The Arena entrance is only for arena users. There is no access to the rest of the facility through the Arena entrance.
  • When you enter, you will be asked to check in at our health assessment tables and you may be required to provide a health assessment.

Important reminders:

  • Do not enter if you are experiencing any symptoms (cough, sneezing, fever greater than 38 degrees).

  • You must maintain 6 feet (2 metres) of space between other individuals and groups.
