Mask requirements and program suspensions update

Mask Requirements

Customers are required to wear a face mask in all common areas in NVRC facilities, including lobbies, hallways and washrooms and some programs and activities. Customers are also encouraged to wear masks during their program or activity. We recognize it’s not feasible to wear a mask in the pool and with most fitness activities that require exertion.
