Province Closes Rinks - January 5 - 26
Submitted By Les Blackwell on Tuesday, January 4, 2022
The province announced yesterday that it is moving to Step 2 of the reopening plan (we were in Step 3), starting at 00:01, Wednesday January 5th.   

As such, games and practices will be cancelled.





The province announced yesterday that it is moving to Step 2 of the reopening plan (we were in Step 3), starting at 00:01, Wednesday January 5th.  Here is the official source;

This is the section of that update that affects us;
 
Closing indoor sport and recreational fitness facilities including gyms, except for athletes training for the Olympics and Paralympics and select professional and elite amateur sport leagues. Outdoor facilities are permitted to operate but with the number of spectators not to exceed 50 per cent occupancy and other requirements
 
Unfortunately, this means that the City of Orillia will be closing the arenas at midnight tonight, until at least January 26th.
I would expect that other municipalities are interpreting this update the same, and that all of our games and practices over the next 21 days will be cancelled.

Updates will be posted here as they happen.
