One of the keys to re-opening a building like Brandon’s Keystone Centre during this pandemic is ensuring everything is properly sanitized – and to that end – the Centre has added six portable, backpack sanitizer sprayers.

Director of marketing Jared McKenzie says the sprayers will allow the Keystone Centre’s operation and events teams to efficiently, and effectively clean high-contact areas of the building.

“Being able to re-open efficiently comes second only to being able to re-open safely. These portable, lightweight, backpack sprayers will allow us to do both as we welcome the community back into the Keystone Centre. The generous support of the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund, and Brandon Area Community Foundation on this project puts the Keystone Centre in a proactive position as we go through the process of re-opening,” says McKenzie. He says the backpack sprayers will bare a patch acknowledging this support.

“Brandon Area Community Foundation (BACF) is very pleased that the Keystone Centre received a grant from the Federal Emergency Community Support Fund Initiative,” stated Laura Kempthorne, executive director of the Brandon Area Community Foundation. “We felt this grant was essential for the Keystone Centre to secure the proper safety equipment. This equipment gives them the ability to sanitize the building thoroughly, in turn keeping everyone that will utilize the facility safe.”
