cOVID-19 Protocols for 2021
At Skydive Toronto, we take our responsibility to our community very seriously. As such, we have instituted guidelines for how to do our part to keep our community safe and prevent the further spread of COVID-19, while still enjoying this thrill of a lifetime.
Please take careful note of the restrictions below:
VACCINATION PASSPORTS NOT REQUIRED
The new regulations that came into effect on September 22nd, 2021 do not affect your ability to skydive. All other protocals, including wearing of masks at all times, will continue to be enforced.
TRAVEL OUTSIDE CANADA
If you have travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days, please reschedule your reservation.
If you are feeling ill leading up to, or on the day of, your reservation, please call our offices to reschedule. This includes the situation of people who live with you starting to experience COVID symptoms.
TEMPERATURE CHECK AND CONTACT TRACING FORMS
On arrival, everyone entering the dropzone is required to have a temperature check and fill out our COVID-19 symptom screening form, including spectators.
Due to social distancing requirements, the only people allowed in the hangar are those that are completeing their legal paperwork and registration. Once complete, please wait outside at the picnic tables while you enjoy the beautiful weather.. Please also remeber to remain with your houeshold while outside. Dressing appropriately for the weather is very important.
Masks are mandatory for everyone on-site. This includes inside the hangar, outside in the spectator area, and in the aircraft. Buffs do not provide enough protection alone and must be worn with a mask underneath. This is mandated by Transport Canada.
While we do understand that legitimate medical exclusions to wearing masks do exist, we are unable to accommodate them. Please reschedule your skydive for a date in the future when masks are not mandatory.
There is a COVID-19 surcharge that all tandem and solo students are required to pay when completing the registration process. The cost is $20. It is required that you wear a mask at all times when at our facility. The buff is worn over the mask, during freefall, to ensure that mask stays on. If not, the mask will blow right off and create a spectacular photo fail.
We will show you a safety video on a tablet. Please ensure that you bring a pair of wired, standard auxiliary headphones to fit into a standard aux connection.
Normally, we would provide jumpsuits to every customer, but as we cannot keep them sanitized between each customer, we are asking you to wear relatively close-fitted athletic clothing and running shoes. You might want to bring an extra pair of clothing in case you get grass stains during your skydive.
FOOD SERVICES CLOSED
Our canteen will not be open this season. Please bring your own snacks and water for your time at the dropzone. There are vending machines onsite.
SANITATION OF ALL EQUIPMENT
In addition to more in-depth cleaning at the end of each day, we will be safely sanitizing all equipment and areas throughout the day and in between customers.
Thank you for supporting us in implementing these measures.
