Mandatory Regulations (Downsview Location)


Welcome Back!

First, please complete Toronto Public Health Covid-19 questionnaire and submit before entering the gym. Every
time you attend class, please let us know if there are any changes.

• Under City of Toronto By-Law 541-2020 (July 7, 2020), wearing a mask or face shield
will be required for indoor public spaces. The mask or face shield should cover your
nose, mouth and chin, without gaps. Wearing a mask or face shield is an additional
