Attached is the Watford Community Arena Reopening Plan as of today along with a separate attachment of the floor plan which is also included in the Reopening Plan.

A summary of the revisions are as follows with signage reflecting the changes installed today:

·      One parent/guardian/spectator will be permitted entrance to arena for each skater/player. 

·      The main arena entrance will be the entrance for all ice users and parents/guardians/spectators.

·      All spectators/parents/guardians) will exit from the building on the northwest side (H. on map).

·      Parents/legal guardians may enter the arena to check in their players/skaters with their respective organizations and if leaving, do so through the main entrance sliding door.

·      Passive pre-screening is required for everyone associated, including parent/guardian/spectator, with each ice rental and is to be completed by the organization/ice rental.

·      To abide by Provincial gathering limits, the parent/guardian/spectator of the skater/player may enter the arena and proceed to designated spectator seating at the start time of the rental and are required to leave via the west arena exit five (5) minutes prior to the end of their skater/player’s ice time.

·      Example: Ice rental 1:00p.m. – 1:50p.m. Enter arena at 1:00p.m. and leave at 1:45p.m.

·      All parents/guardians/spectators must exit the stands between rentals. If a parent/guardian/spectator is staying for another rental, they must leave the facility and re-enter through the main arena entrance.

·      Parents/guardians/spectators are not permitted in dressing rooms or lobby.

·      The number of players/skaters, referees, timekeepers, music players and parents/guardians/spectators during a rental cannot exceed 50.

·      Players’ benches will be available for games/practices. For ice rentals assisting with the cleaning of the players’ benches, Township WHMIS training will be provided electronically.

·      Parents/guardians/spectators may assist their skater/player with washroom facilities with the skater/player using the designated on/off ice door, meeting their parent/guardian/spectator in the lobby and using the universal washroom.

·      The men’s and women’s washrooms in the arena lobby will be open for parents/guardians/spectators.

·      Parents/guardians/spectators must ensure that they are physically distanced by a minimum of 2m in the stands and expected to stay seating during their time in the arena unless there is a need to use the washroom facilities. 

 

 

Reminder of Mask Requirements:

Masks – Effective as of Thursday, October 8, 2020

 

Public Attending Municipal Facilities – As per Ontario Regulation 364/20

 

All members of the public, including contractors, are required to wear masks when entering all municipal facilities

·      On the ice surface or engaging in physical activity where physical distancing is possible.
