Due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, the RCMP Heritage Centre will be closed indefinitely.  We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to see you in the future.

The RCMP Heritage Centre is working closely with industry partners to monitor developments relating to COVID-19 and taking direction from, provincial, Canadian and global health authorities.

We would like to assure you that the health and safety of all our visitors and employees remains our top priority. We have taken precautionary measures throughout our building in order to provide a safe and healthy environment for all.

Preventative Measures

We have implemented increased cleaning protocols for high-touch surfaces in public areas, including bars, handrails, and seat arms, elevators and washrooms to name a few.  We are also providing additional hand sanitizer dispensers for employee and public use.We encourage everyone to follow the guidelines of the Saskatchewan Health and Public Health Canada. Practicing proper hygiene etiquette and taking preventative actions will help reduce the spread of respiratory viruses.

We are reminding employees through multiple channels about washing hands frequently and using proper hand-washing protocol.  Employees have further been reminded to take increased measures to reduce the risk of transmission of the flu and respiratory illness, and to stay home if they are sick.

Bookings

Please note that due to the outbreak, the RCMP Heritage Centre is not accepting facility rental or educational programming bookings for the months of March, April, and May at this time.  If you have concerns about a facility rental you already have booked, please contact Scott Saxby. If you have concerns about a group booking/educational programming you already have booked, please contact Deb LeDressay.

Key health notes that you can follow to reduce the spread of COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the washroom and when preparing food.
  • Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • When coughing or sneezing:
    • cough or sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm, not your hand.
    • dispose of any tissues you have used as soon as possible in a lined waste basket and wash your hands afterwards.
