Hello Preds families. The LSMHA can pass on what we know at this point about the Government's plans to ease public health measures.
The municipality has informed LSMHA that it is planning to reopen both the Shores and Legacy Centres on January 31, 2022.
The municipality will provide more information on arena restrictions when they receive guidance from the Province and/or Lambton Public Health.
The OMHA is currently awaiting further details on how this "Return to Play" will affect programming over the coming weeks. As always, we will share any new information when it becomes available.
Effective January 31, 2022 at 12:01 a.m. the Government of Ontario will begin the process of gradually easing restrictions, while maintaining protective measures, including but not limited to:
**Increasing or maintaining capacity limits at 50 per cent in indoor public settings, including but not limited to:
**Non-spectator areas of sports and recreational fitness facilities, including gyms;
**Allowing spectator areas of facilities such as sporting events, concert venues and theatres to operate at 50 per cent seated capacity or 500 people, whichever is less. (to see the full press release, click here).
Important reminder from LSMHA and the Municipality
Existing safety measures such as social distancing and masking will remain in place. Effective January 4, 2022, the use of the enhanced COVID-19 vaccine certificate with QR code and the Verify Ontario app has been required where proof of vaccination is required.
