Arena Guidelines-Re-Opening/Exit Step

Effective Monday, October 25, the province entered into A Plan to Safely Reopen Ontario and Manage COVID-19 for the Long Term. There is also a detailed press release for review. While we await the amendments to be consolidated with the current governing regulation, O. Reg 364/20: Rules For Areas At Step 3, the amendments are available separately in the Order in Council document.  Peterborough Public Health has confirmed that facilities used for sports & recreational fitness activities, including areas for spectators within those facilities, can make updates to their facility safety plans. Below are some of the key highlights of the announcement:

  • Proof of vaccination (POV) is required for every person 12+ entering the indoor facility, unless they have an approved exemption.
  • In the Peterborough Public Health region, there is a letter of instruction in effect for indoor facilities where organized sports are played or practiced that must be implemented, which requires POV for coaches, volunteers, and officials 12 years of age and older (effective Oct 18), as well as for active participants 12-17 (which commences November 26).
  • For more information about approved exemptions, refer to the guidance document, beginning on page 4.
  • Capacity limits for facilities can be removed; which means confirming proof of vaccine is exceptionally important.
  • Physical distancing requirements in spectator and non-spectator areas can be removed.
  • Contact tracing requirements remain for everyone entering the facility.
  • Active screening requirements remain for everyone entering the facility.
  • Organized sports leagues and organized events must submit a safety plan to the facility prior to be granted a permit to use the facility.
  • Everyone must wear a mask indoors, limited exemptions apply (including when a person is engaged in athletic or fitness activity).
  • Enhanced cleaning & disinfection is still required
