The Regional District of Nanaimo issued a statement late Saturday night (March 14), indicating Ravensong Aquatic Centre will be closed until an electrical issue is fixed.
According to Christina Gray, communications co-ordinator for the RDN, a section of a light fixture on the ceiling broke on Saturday night “compromising the pool and pool deck.” No one was hurt during the incident.
Staff are currently cleaning the pool and pool deck, and electricians will be on site Monday to inspect the fixtures. No date has been set for the pool to reopen.
“Ravensong will remain closed until we can ensure the safety of our staff and the public,” said Gray in an email. “This is not related to COVID-19 which the RDN is closely monitoring.”
Earlier Saturday, the district said to increase social distancing, the steam room, sauna and hot tub at Ravensong are closed until further notice.
