Reactivating your Pass

You can choose to reactivate your annual pass/membership, depending on your comfort level and which Westside facilities or programs are offered. Westside will only reactivate all passes when we are fully open and operational.

Click here to Reactivate & Sign the New Waiver.

You will receive an email confirming your pass has been successfully reactivated. Please allow up to 72 hours for Westside staff to process your request.

After Reactivation, Plan Your Visit

You must have reactivated your membership/pass and received an email confirmation that you are ready to visit.

Please note that Westside is reopening in phases while working to provide the safest and healthiest environment for our guests. Some areas and equipment may not be available at this time.

Proof of full vaccination is required for all visitors 12Y and up. As of November 15, the Alberta QR code vaccination card is the only acceptable form of vaccine proof for Alberta residents. Those who reside outside of Alberta are required to provide valid QR code proof of vaccination in print or digital format.

While you visit, face masks are required in common areas - entry/exit, hallways, change rooms, washrooms, on the pool deck. Face masks are not required during physical activity. Please ensure you are maintaining a respectful distance between yourself and others. We’re making sure to space our equipment and class participants appropriately.

If you require assistance, a Westside staff member would be happy to help you.

Working Together for a Successful Relaunch

If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, please do not visit Westside:

  • Do you or anyone in your household have signs of illness, including a fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat or runny nose?
  • Have you had contact with a person suspected or diagnosed with COVID-19?

Protect yourself! Sanitize equipment BEFORE and AFTER use with the wipes provided. Fitness staff will also disinfect equipment regularly.

To ensure we’re as clean and healthy as we can be, Westside uses:

  • Industrial disinfecting machines 
  • Gold standard disinfecting products
  • Focused cleaning strategies, particularly in high-touch areas
  • Plexiglass barriers at Customer Service

What’s Not Available Yet:

  • Public drop-in times
  • Any equipment or spaces that cannot be adequately sanitized
  • Food services

We’ll be updating our website as new information becomes available. Be sure to check back regularly.
