Received form Skate Ontario - Friday, July 9, 2021

Skate Ontario is pleased to announce that Ontario is expected to move into Step 3 of the Roadmap to Reopen on Friday, July 16. While this is exciting news, we are waiting for further direction from the Provincial Government as well as the legislation as to what will be permitted in this next step. Once the consolidated regulations are released, we will update the Skate Ontario Return to Play Protocols and communicate this immediately.

As of today (Saturday, July 10) we have not received confirmation from the city of Ottawa for the start date. We are hopeful to be back at the rink on Monday, July 19th.
