Since Premier Scott Moe and Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Saqib Shahab announced on Tuesday that Phase 4.2 would be launched on June 29th, Kindersley businesses, committees and public service sectors have finally been able to work on plans that were previously put on hold.
Kindersley Minor Ball is one of the organizations that is currently wading through the reopen paperwork. “As far as Kindersley Minor Ball is concerned,” President Chad Miller noted in a recent interview, “we are currently in a suspended state while we continue to perform a risk analysis and are also seeking legal advice prior to committing to starting up programming.”
Miller noted that KMB is a softball organization, which means the documents and waivers needed are different from the waivers and forms released by Sask Baseball. KBM has some concerns regarding these documents and hopes that continued brainstorming will soon allow them to create concrete plans for the 2020 season.
Now that theatres can operate at a capacity that facilitates social distancing, Kindersley’s Sunset Theatre will reopen on July 3rd, premiering Jurassic Park. The playing times will be at 7 p.m. Friday July 3rd, Saturday, July 4th and Sunday, July 5th.
The Kindersley branch of Wheatland Regional Library will remain status quo, as Wheatland Regional has already created a reopening plan for the summer. A tricky portion of the reopen plan is the fact that books cannot be sanitized and thus must go through a 72-hour quarantine period.
The Kindersley & District Plains Museum has not yet decided on the fate of the 2020 season, and have tabled the discussion until their regular meeting on July 14th.
