RFABC Best Practices for Reopening Indoor Recreation Facilities Survey
With the release of the BC Restart plan (https://bit.ly/2ztkhJI), RFABC is gathering information for the reopening of indoor recreation facilities. Members are invited to share their ideas with their cohorts across the province.

Sharing your thoughts on the cornerstones for reopening will assist the recreation community in meeting the phases outlined in the plan.  Share your ideas on:
-Physical distancing (reducing density of people)
-Engineering controls (barriers and ventilation)
-Administrative controls (rules and guidelines)
-Personal Protective equipment

This information auto-populate to a google sheet for easy access to review and serve as a resource beyond the survey deadline.  The format will allow us to filter results to different facility types or key categories.

Contributors to the survey will also receive an early access link to the survey information.

Your assistance with this survey is greatly appreciated.
