The Springside Community Centre is our natural ice arena and as such is the hub of activity in the winter months.

Stick it to COVID: Keep Holiday Gatherings Safe
Released on November 30, 2021
'Tis the season for planning holiday season gatherings with family, friends and in workplaces. Share seasonal greetings and not COVID-19.
All holiday planning should consider the vaccination status of your potential guests as well as the risk for friends and family who may be more vulnerable to COVID-19. Let your guests know if your gathering will require proof of vaccination. The COVID-19 QR code and verifier apps make it easy to check the vaccination status of guests in all settings.
Know before you go - consider using a rapid test ahead of any gathering, even if you are vaccinated. Free rapid testing kits for asymptomatic screening at home are available throughout Saskatchewan.
Private indoor gatherings should be kept small, and consider keeping a list of all attendees, should there be a COVID-19 case that requires a contact investigation. You should continue to wear a mask and physically distance among people from multiple households who are unvaccinated, partially vaccinated or whose vaccination status is unknown.
Don't host or attend a gathering if you feel unwell. Seek testing for even the mildest symptoms, regardless of your vaccination status.
Outdoors is safer than indoors and increased ventilation should be considered for all gathering settings whether opening windows or using air purifiers with HEPA filters.
Kids should wear a mask when taking photos with Santa, and no pulling Santa's beard to see if the whiskers are real. Santa's face covering should fit over his beard too.
School-based holiday concerts and events are required to abide by COVID-19 preventative measures. Watch for the requirements of the school setting in any invite you receive to a school event.
Single-dose Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccines are still available to residents 18 and older on a walk-in basis at designated clinics in Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, Lloydminster and Estevan. You are considered fully immunized 14 days after your Janssen vaccination, before that holiday break begins.
Vaccination is the best tool available to prevent COVID-19 transmission and serious COVID-19 illness, particularly as new variants of concern are being detected in Canada. Children aged five to 11 are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and getting immunized as soon as possible, which means they will be eligible for a second dose that much sooner.
Find a vaccination clinic near you and give the gift of protection from COVID-19 to yourself, your friends and family.
