Ontario Phase One: Climbing During Covid19

As you are likely aware, Ontario began Phase One of re-opening of the economy on May 19th, allowing some businesses to resume operations while following social distancing guidelines.

Rock climbing was identified as one of the industries that can begin the process of preparing to re-open. After following guidelines from the Climbing Escalade Canada (CEC) and being in consultation with the Durham Region Health Department we will open May 27. We have spent this time preparing a handbook and getting the approval from the Durham Region Health inspector.
