A statement on UM Sport and Recreation Facilities and Programming

MARCH 13, 2020 - The University of Manitoba continues to aggressively work to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) threat. As a precaution, the Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management has made the decision to suspend operations of its Sport and Recreation facilities and programming effective at the close of business hours Friday, March 13 at 10 p.m.

In order to adhere to the protocols of social distancing as a method to protect the health and wellbeing of our entire community, we have canceled our spring sport and recreation programs, including all swimming lessons, and will be fully refunding your fees. If you originally registered and paid for your courses online, please allow up to 14 days for the credit to appear on your MasterCard/Visa statement. If you registered and paid in person we will be contacting you to make arrangements for a refund.

We thank you for understanding with this difficult, yet necessary, decision. We value your business and appreciate your patience as we navigate this evolving situation.
