Toronto relaxes COVID-19 rink rules as winter activities move ‘toward normal’
A view of the new state of the art ice rink made possible as a result of the support and collaboration of many who have been involved by our community, the Government of Ontario, and the private sector, during the COVID 19 pandemic.
For the first time since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ontario will be hosting a new skating rink on its North Shore this winter.
On Monday, the premier announced that he was making this new rink available to community members to use during the month of January, 2020.
As a direct result of the support of our province, business, and the community, and the collaboration with the private sector and the province, the new rink at the North Toronto Sportsplex, will be better than ever before.
After this announcement, the existing public rinks in Ottawa, Cambridge, Kitchener, Barrie, Stratford, Milton, Guelph, St. Thomas, Toronto, and Pickering will continue to operate uninterrupted.
The new rink for the North Toronto Sportsplex will be open during the month of January, 2020.
This project is fully funded by the Provincial government. We are so lucky to have such dedicated, hard working people with such great hearts as our government has shown in their action, and that of our local businesses, over the last few years.
The rink would not have been possible without the support and collaboration of our community, the Government of Ontario, and the private sector, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new North Toronto Sportsplex rink, is in keeping with our focus to move activities forward, in a manner that encourages social distancing, and limits our exposure to the disease.
It will also be the first in Canada to feature on-site food and beverages and, in fact, features several of these elements right now.
The new skating rink
The new rink at the North Toronto Sportsplex will be bigger than what was previously available, and this will be an important step to allow us to keep up the momentum we have created here in our community, with respect to social distancing and, thus, limit our exposure to COVID-
