No Smoking on the Property
Smoking and vaping is strictly prohibited inside the Tribute Communities Centre at all times. Durham Region’s by-law also states you cannot smoke or vape on the outdoor grounds of a community recreational facility or any public areas within 20 metres of its grounds. The Smoke-Free Ontario Act, 2017 combined with the new regional Smoking and Vaping By-law, helps to provide area residents with an increased level of protection from both indoor and outdoor exposure to second-hand smoke or vape in public spaces, as well as protection for employees from exposure in the workplace. More information on the Durham Region Smoking and Vaping By-law can be found on the Durham Region website.
Together AGAIN! Reopening Plan
The custom “Together AGAIN!” Reopening Plan was created using industry standards and recommendations; directives from local, provincial and federal governments; guidance from Health Canada, Ontario Health, World Health Organization (WHO) and the Durham Region Health Department as well as expertise from Spectra’s leaders and subject matter experts. This plan will continue to be updated throughout the pandemic as it progresses.
“We approached the reopening strategy through the lens of our guests, thinking about their full experience from the time they purchase their ticket to when they pull out of their parking spaces to head home,” Vince Vella, Spectra’s General Manager at Tribute Communities Centre, said. “We want our guests and our employees alike to know that every precautionary measure we’ve implemented is to ensure their health and safety while they are at the Tribute Communities Centre. We want our guests to have an enjoyable, straightforward, familiar—and above all, safe experience.”
