Share your "Opening Resources"
CPRA (Canadian Parks and Recreation Association) has started a Google Drive. If you are willing to share your "opening resources" with everyone across the country and beyond to help with creating guidelines and protocols, please click here. There is not much yet for indoor facilities but the folders are created and people are able to add their content when they are ready to share.
