Southport Office & RecPlex Close

As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, the Southport team is monitoring the local and global environments closely. We have remained vigilant in following the advice of Canada's public health authorities and the guidelines that have been set in place. Our top priority is the health and safety of our customers, employees and community. As the virus continues to spread, we have made the necessary decision to close the Southport Office and the Central Plains RecPlex to the public until further notice. Regular day-to-day operations in the Southport Office will continue as directed and all customer inquiries can be made by phone or email.

The Central Plains RecPlex will remain open until Friday, March 20 at 10:00pm. Until this time, members will have full access to the facility and any items they may need from the lockers. We would like to urge our members to remain proactive with social distancing, frequent hand washing and with wiping all equipment and surfaces after each use. The impact of COVID-19 continues to prompt the review of a number of events across North America. Manitoba public health officials have recommended implementing social distancing measures for all Manitobans, including cancelling or postponing any large-scale events with more than 250 attendees. In coordination with these recommendations, Southport has opted to cancel or postpone some upcoming events:

Unmanned Systems Canada Student UAS Competition - Postponed to 2021
RCAF Gala - Cancelled 

As the Manitoba Airshow takes place later this spring on June 20 and 21, it is still set to take place as scheduled. The Manitoba Airshow committee is taking all guidelines from health authorities into consideration and is following all official guidelines in order to plan a safe event.
