Sport and Leisure Facilities Update

Sport and Leisure Facilities Update
25 August 2020

Following the First Ministers announcement last week that indoor sport and leisure facilities can reopen from the 31 August subject to Scottish Government guidance, Orkney Islands Council will continue to plan for re-opening from 14 September in line with previous timescales.

While we welcome the announcement that sport and leisure facilities can reopen, the challenges presented by COVID – 19 mean that it is likely that we will not be able to open facilities any earlier than the 14 September, as we continue to consider the operational implications of opening our facilities.

The benefits that sport and physical activity can bring to peoples physical and mental health are clear, however, we also all have a responsibility to do what we can to continue to suppress the spread of the virus and as a result we are continuing to work with sportscotland and other partners to progress plans that ensure our facilities open and operate safely.

Further detailed communication and updated timeline for the opening of facilities will be issued later this week.
