South Nation is pleased to advise its customers and students that the indoor lanes will be allowed to re-open under the following conditions. PLEASE read carefully. We will be in compliance with ONTARIO REGULATION 364/20, which was issued on February 10, 2021. These guidelines will continue unless a third COVID-19 wave forces the Ontario government to shut down the Eastern Ontario Health Unit again.
Part 1: Private Lessons and General Practice
Effective Wednesday, February 17th at 1pm EST, 1-hour, pre-registered private lessons and practice times will resume at SNAS. All previous COVID-19 cleaning regimes and physical distancing guidelines will be re-instated.
All participants and students must wear a mask when not on the shooting line. Those refusing to do so will be asked to leave our facility immediately.
a) Using the Lanes
During practice shooting times, only 2 persons will be allowed on the line at once, and 2 lines only, with a maximum of two “germ pools” per hour. Pre-registration is mandatory; no walk-ins will be allowed in the lanes. People who arrive unannounced will have to book a time and return.
In accordance with the regulations, there will be NO spectators allowed, but guardians may wait in the showroom. Also, you will be given only ONE HOUR to practice.
b) In-person Private Lessons
Priority will be given to all those students / families who had their pre-booked lessons cancelled due to the Stay-at-Home order. Kathleen Millar will be in touch with you directly via e-mail in order to re-schedule, if you are still interested. Skype lessons will continue as usual.
All private lessons must be pre-booked via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. No exceptions.
Part 2: Group Lessons Phase-in Plan
Due to the province-wide lock down, session #2 group lessons were cancelled. Providing there is no further restriction in the Eastern Ontario Health Unit area, SNAS will start group lessons in March 2021.
a) Advanced/Intermediate Groups Session #3
All those students who were pre-registered for Session #2 will be given priority to return to class if they desire. Kathleen Millar will e-mail each student / family directly. You must confirm your interest to return or your spot will be given to those on the waiting list.
Classes for Session #3 Advanced/Intermediate will begin on Wednesday, March 3rd and Thursday, March 4th. Further information will be posted on our website.
b) Beginner Youth, Teens and Adult Groups Session #3
All those students who were pre-registered for lessons will be given priority to return to class if they desire. Kathleen Millar will e-mail each student / family directly. You must confirm your interest to return or your spot will be given to those on the waiting list.
Classes for Session #3 Beginner Youth, Teens and Adults will begin on Friday, March 5th. Further information will be posted on our website.
We look forward to seeing everyone again soon!
