In consultation with public health, capacity at the Emera Oval will be increasing to 240 skaters per skate time effective Wednesday, Jan. 27. 

Skaters can now arrive within 30-minutes of their skate time to check-in. With this increased capacity, physical distancing may not always be possible. Non-medical masks will now be mandatory at all times, including on the ice surface. 

In addition to the 48-hour rolling registration coming in to effect on Monday, Jan. 25, these changes aim to assist more residents in accessing skate times.

Staff will continue to work with Public Health to assess and adjust protocols as needed to balance demand and the safety of all participants and staff.
