Do I really have to wear a mask when I'm exercising? Do I have to wear one in the pool?
Yes. Masks are required in the climbing gym. No exceptions. This requirement is an order directly from the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health. At this time, the Town of Canmore's Mandatory Mask Bylaw is still in effect. 

Parents/caregivers supporting participants in the water must wear a mask. Spare disposable masks are available and can be provided should your mask become wet and need replacing. Children and youth, and one-on-one swimmers do not need to wear a mask in the pool, but must wear one onto and off the pool deck, as well as in the change rooms. 

What is a low-intensity activity?
Low intensity is different for everyone, depending on a number of factors such as fitness, health and type of activity. To keep activity at a low intensity for you personally, there’s a simple measure: the TALK test. If you can speak comfortably or carry on a conversation during your workout without sounding breathless, you are exercising at an acceptable low intensity level.

Your cooperation in maintaining low-intensity while exercising will help us to keep our doors open and enable us to safely expand our offerings as soon as we can. 
What is one-on-one training in the pool?
One-on-one training is available for adults to work with a swim instructor who will provide active supervision and instruction throughout the session. Swimmers will receive feedback on stroke correction and pacing, as well as guidance on drills for improving efficiency. Instructors will provide feedback based on the ability and personal goals of the swimmer; all abilities are encouraged to register for one-on-one training sessions. At this time, lane swimming is not permitted under Alberta's enhanced public safety measures. 
What is a household?
A household is limited to members who live within the same house. People who live alone can have up to two close contacts, but these must be the same two close contacts throughout the duration of the restriction. 

One-on-one sessions can be booked for a household or for an individual and their close contacts. One-on-one sessions are limited to four people maximum for a household.
