Athletics MB received the following communication from the University of Manitoba Facilities staff on March 30th. We ask that our membership respect the closure of the facility and please refrain from using the track.
It was recently noticed that someone has been clearing snow from the outdoor stadium track, leading us to believe that some of your athletes may be taking advantage of the beautiful weather and using the facility to train. Please inform your athletes that all of the outdoor facilities are included in this campus-wide closure, making them off limits until campus and the facilities have re-opened.
Though they know how to gain access to the space even when the main entrance is gated and locked, this unfortunately does not mean they can continue coming to train. The facilities are closed to align with the university’s policies to protect the health of our community and prevent the spread of COVID-19, so please ensure that your athletes are aware of and adhering to this.
Security will be frequently monitoring the space from now on, and if anyone is found in the facility they will promptly be asked to leave.
