Published October 28, 2021 at 1:09 pm
The Town of Whitby has announced it is lifting capacity limits on town facilities in concert with provincial plans to return to normalcy in the projected post-pandemic era.
Hot on the heels of the Ontario Government’s announcement on October 22 of their plan to reopen the province over the next six months, Whitby unveiled it’s plan on October 27.
Firstly, the Civic Recreation Complex (CRC) will increase capacity and remove the need to pre-book workout times on October 28.
On November 1, the Anne Ottenbrite pool will return to full capacity and remove advance bookings. All change rooms will open for use. However, the CRC pool will remain closed for renovations.
Later that week, the Iroquois Park Sports Centre and McKinney Centre ice rinks will open at full capacity. Residents will also be able to book the arena for events once again.
Vaccine verification will still be required for anybody over 12 years old who wishes to attend. Residents will also be screened for COVID-19 symptoms prior to entry.
