Hello everyone,

Thank you all for your effort in keeping the transmission of Covid-19 and the Variants of Concern at the forefront and for ensuring that everyone involved in your teams or groups are following the COVID Guidelines for Arena Ice Users at all times.

Attached is the updated guideline document, with the following revisions listed below. Please share with all your user groups / users / stakeholders:


REVISED Coaches, volunteers, managers, association members, officials, and anyone who is on the ice, dressing room or bench with the players, and is aged 12+ must present proof of full of full vaccination for COVID-19 (both doses) along with *identification at the point of entry to the arena. Individuals can provide proof of immunization by downloading or printing their vaccine receipt from the provincial booking portal, or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line at 1-833-943-3900. Individuals 2nd dose must be at least 14 days prior to attending an arena. Proof of vaccination will be accepted if the person’s name and date of birth on their identification document matches the vaccination receipt with name and date of birth and if the person is fully vaccinated.

**For additional information on the revised guideline above, please see:

REVISED SPECTATORS are permitted to be in the facility but must not loiter in the hallways / lobby area. Facility capacity is now at 100% and the spectator seating occupancy limit will be posted at each arena. Spectators must immediately leave the facility once the booking is completed, unless they are a parent/guardian of a young child who requires supervision.

Safety Protocol

REVISED In response to the evolving situation of the COVID-19 VOCs, the Government of Ontario has adopted a more rigorous and cautious approach to implementing public health measures when it comes to isolation. If a participant/player/spectator must remain in isolation due to close contact of a confirmed or suspected COVID Case or a school or workplace closure, access to facilities will be determined based on the directives provided by Public Health Sudbury & Districts.

REVISED Any positive cases of COVID by any participants and spectators (players, coaches, trainers, managers, parents, guardians, etc.) MUST be reported to Manager of Arenas immediately, along with the directives provided to you by Public Health Sudbury & Districts.

All the best,
Jody Cameron, MBA
Manager of Arenas
