BASE GYM REOPENING PLAN - CURRENT PHASE: 1A
The health and safety of all members of the CFB Kingston military community is our primary focus. After review and consideration of all applicable regulations, policies, guidelines, and in collaboration with the Base Surgeon and Personnel Support Programs staff, it has been determined that a gradual approach to reopening the facility would be best to allow flexibility towards any new developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Base Gym reopening consists of 3 Phases:
Initial reopening with primary focus on CAF member PT. Military members can obtain more information on Phase 1A at the following link: http://kingston.mil.ca/notices/2020/august/covid/ (DWAN only)
