Public skating returns at the arenas

Public skating returns this week to both arenas in Prince Edward County.

Under provincial legislation, everyone 18 years of age and older must provide proof of full vaccination and photo ID to participate in public skating. People under 18 years of age do not need to provide proof of vaccination.

Anyone entering the facilities must complete the COVID-19 screening. The following information will be collected upon entry:
Name and phone contact of each person attending the facility
COVID-19 self-screening questions sign-off for each person entering facility (parent or guardian to sign for anyone under age 16).

A mask must be worn while in the facilities. Public skating participants can remove their masks prior to putting on a helmet and while actively skating.

The County is allowing up to 50 skaters for each session on a first-come, first-served basis.

See below for the public skating schedule for each facility:

Wellington and District Community Centre [WDCC] (111 Belleville Street, Wellington)
Wednesdays, 10:30 am – noon
Fridays, 10:30 am – noon

    Bang on Michele! Kudos to The County.

    Erroring on the side of caution is not hiding. Do the words “red risk zone” resonate?

  3. michele says:

    Oh come on. You can”t hide forever and 50 people skating on a large ice surface seems reasonable.

  4. angela says:

    I agree Hedy. The attitude now seems to be survival of the fittest. With the current rise in cases the lifting of restrictions points in this direction.

  5. Hedy Campbell says:

    In my view, public skating without a mask is crazy and
    will only result in bad consequences. Parents be careful!
    Right now covid is increasing rapidly, so act accordingly when in public places.
