Trico Centre COVID-19 FAQs - updated March 19

Trico Centre for Family Wellness is temporarily closed.

We understand our members, day camp and program registrants, facility renters have many questions, and we are working diligently to answer them. 

The Trico Centre strives to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees and patrons utilizing the facility. With this in mind, we wish to address the current concerns about the Coronavirus Covid-19 as it has now appeared in Alberta. At this time, Alberta Health Services indicates our risk of infection is low, but has guidelines in place for prevention, care, or self-isolation for those who have travelled to places of high risk or have been exposed. In an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, the City of Calgary is closing all Calgary sport and recreation centres.
