September 10, 2020 Update: With final review by Lambton Public Health now complete, the following revised operating standards will come into effect for all re-opened arenas on Monday September 14, 2020.

COVID-19 Revised Arena Operating Standards:

Following consultation with our Arena Advisory Committee and final review by Lambton Public Health, the updated standards support an increase in capacity within our arenas, with the opening of additional pads, and the return of spectators:

• Maximum 20 participants, per ice rental.

• Maximum 5 Coaches, per ice rental.

• Maximum 1 Spectator per participant, per ice rental.

We have based this phase of operating standards on the premise that each rink may have its own participant maximums and its own spectator maximums, while still considering the overlap in rental times. With the addition of spectators in each arena, we have designated entrance and exits for spectators to access specific viewing areas, based on each rental, which will require the support of each user group to provide spectators access too. Each of these areas have been chosen so that spectators are able to abide by physical distancing requirements.

The complete “City of Sarnia COVID-19 Arena Operating Standards” document, including maps of the layout of each Arena will be shared with every ice user group. Our ice user groups will then share the information with each of their participants prior to ice use and the document is attached for reference below.

We will continue to monitor, evaluate and adapt these Arena Operating Standards to ensure the safety of all staff, participants and community members, and will provide any relevant modifications based on any subsequent Provincial updates and standards.

We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in adhering to our operating standards so we can continue to operate our Arenas in a safe and efficient manner which allows users and community members to continue to engage in their on ice activities.
