COVID-19 Guidelines at the Outdoor Rink

Due to provincial guidelines to stop the spread of COVID-19 the capacity for outdoor skating surfaces is 10 people.

The Town of Strathmore is working to protect our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. We've created this page to provide information about how provincial Public Health Orders affect the Lions Outdoor Skating Rink, new ice surfaces in Terry Ray Clark Park, and pond skating at Kinsmen Lake and Strathmore Lake. Due to provincial guidelines to stop the spread of COVID-19 the capacity for outdoor skating surfaces is 10 people.

Stay home and away from others

  • If you’re showing symptoms or feeling unwell
  • If you are a close contact of someone who has tested positive or are waiting for test results for COVID-19
  • If you have travelled outside of Canada in the past 14 days

Masks and face coverings

You should wear a mask where it could be difficult to maintain a two metre distance from people outside of your household. For example, masks can be worn:

  • From the parking lot to the skating rink
  • When putting skates on or taking them off
  • On the ice

Face masks are not mandatory outdoors, but are strongly encouraged in areas where physical distancing is difficult to maintain. You do not have to wear a mask if you meet any of the exemption criteria. Learn more about provincial guidelines on face coverings.

What we're doing to keep you safe

  • Managing the maximum number of people on the ice at the same time to allow for proper distancing

How you and your household can stay safe

  • Follow all current Public Health Orders
  • Avoid crowded areas
  • Maintain physical distancing whenever possible
  • Wear a face covering where it’s difficult to stay two metres away from others, even when you’re outside
  • Avoid gathering with those outside of your household (unless you live alone and are meeting up to two close contacts, or it is unplanned that you happen to be at the same place at the same time)
  • Don’t gather or loiter in parking areas
  • Wash your hands with soap and water before, during and after your activity
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth and face
  • Cover coughs and sneezes in a tissue or your elbow
  • Carry and use your own hand sanitizer
