Summer Aquatic Registered Programs Cancellation Notice (email & website)

The Town of Hanover has cancelled all of our summer 2020 registered aquatic programs (ie swim lessons, aquatic fitness programs) in the format that was promoted online and in our Summer 2020 Guide.  With the recent announcement that pools can re-open, please note the following.  The Town of Hanover is taking a strategic and cautious response to re-opening with the ongoing threat of COVID-19.  This response includes the development, implementation and training of various processes and procedures to ensure a safe and positive re-opening for patrons and staff. As restrictions from the Province and local Public Health are lifted, Parks, Recreation & Culture staff will consider opportunity for redesigned or modified programs and rentals where possible.  Our re-opening plans are being developed in collaboration with our Joint Health and Safety Committee.  Community members will be informed of re-opening plans as they transpire.  You are encouraged to check regularly for updates.
