Following our Return to Play Update communication on Friday November 27th, we received news today that the Province has provided new guidance surrounding programming numbers in the Red Zones.
Please find below the updated information for Red Zone programming:
- The total number of members of the public permitted to in all classes, organized programs or organized activities at any one time indoors in a facility must be limited to the number that can maintain a physical distance of at least two metres from other persons at the facility, and in any event cannot exceed 10 people.
- The limit of 10 people applies to members of the public participating in classes, organized programs or organized activities, not the employees, coaches, officials, trainers, spectators or accompanying parents/guardians.
- There are not specific limits on the number of employees, coaches, officials and trainers; however, it cannot exceed the number of people who are able to maintain a physical distance of two metres and all people must maintain a physical distance of two metres from anyone else.
- As per Skate Ontario Return to Play Protocols – Version 5.0, the total number of individuals on the ice for any program must not exceed those listed as the Maximum Group Training Sizes Effective October 2, 2020.
All Skate Ontario clubs and skating schools should continue to communicate with their facilities and diligently maintain all other Skate Ontario Return to Play Protocols. Skate Ontario will continue to provide Return to Play updates every two weeks, unless other changes or announcements are made in the meantime. Should you have questions related to this, please contact the Skate Ontario Club Support Services.
Finally, remember to join our Town Hall tonight at 7:00pm ET being held via Facebook Live as well as on our YouTube channel. Please join us as we discuss the recent updates as well as provide an opportunity to ask questions.
