The Coronavirus and Skydiving at Skydive Ontario
The country has been on lock down because of the coronavirus since March. All you hear and read on the news is coronavirus this, and COVID-19 that. You really don’t have much of a choice as to what news you watch or read. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel and we are almost at the end of the tunnel.
The light at the end of the tunnel, unfortunately, does not transmit normalcy. Until there is a vaccine for COVID-19 most of us will be conscious of what we touch, how often we wash our hands, and running from people who sneeze around us. At Skydive Ontario, we too, will be very conscious of our actions for the sake of our customers and employees.
Upon the removal of the non-essential business shutdown put in place by Doug Ford, Skydive Ontario will be opening its doors, quite literally, for skydiving. We will have sanitizing and cleaning measures in place to do our best to ensure public health safety. For the safety of our staff and guests we ask that you refrain from skydiving with us if you are experiencing a fever of 38 degrees or higher, a dry cough, or respiratory issues.
Should you be worried about contracting the coronavirus? Of course you should. But you should also be worried about contracting the seasonal flu. You would be shocked to learn about how many people the flu affects worldwide each year according to the World Health Organization. We always suggest you take the advice of your public health official, but a little supplementary reading may help to ease any stress or anxiety you have about returning to the world after the lock down.
With the warmer weather on its way we are gearing up for the skydiving season. We are currently taking bookings and weekend slots are starting to fill up. We also will be having a skyvan fly in for two separate weekends this summer. Those weekends will be July 18-19 and August 22-23. Due to the popularity of the skyvan for skydiving, spaces are limited for tandem skydives. Call and reserve your slot now.
Wash your hands often, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, and sneeze and cough into your sleeve. We will be doing our best not to let the sun and fun escape us this summer. Stay healthy, Ontario!
