CITY OF WINNIPEG COVID-19 NEWS
Due to the City being elevated to RED on the Pandemic Response System, Norberry-Glenlee CC will be closed to all activities until further notice. Please stay safe out there, and let's all work together to get this under control!
UPDATE - JANUARY 14 - Well looks like we will have to wait to see what transpires with our health orders. Let's hope that this extra time will do a real number on this virus so we can finally move forward!
The rinks at both sites are available to skate on. We have had some concerns about the number of people skating on the rinks at once, consuming alcohol and some behavior issues, but we are trying to address them. We have also had some concerns about players wanting to use the entire sheet for shinny when there are others on the rink. Please remember to be respectful and only use 1/2 the rink if there are skaters on the rink as well. The Glenlee site on Worthington has 2 rinks with nets and a pleasure rink with no boards or nets, so perhaps that is a better choice for people just looking to skate.
PLEASE remember to follow the protocols below - if you arrive and the rinks are full of people, DO NOT join in, as you could receive a fine!
Our plan is to have the lights on at the Glenlee site until 8 pm each day, and 10 pm at the Norberry site. We do have video surveillance at both sites, so if we see that protocols are not being followed, the lights will be turned off. Not having the buildings open will be new to us, so we will monitor things and make changes if necessary.
Here is the protocol information that has to be followed - PLEASE READ this over and ensure that you are following these protocols so that everyone can continue to enjoy the rinks! PARENTS - please make sure your children understand the rules as well if they are going to the rink on their own.
Outdoor ice rinks can open, and individuals or families can go skating. However, people engaged in the activity must maintain a separation of at least two meters from others, unless they are from the same household. In addition, people must not engage in activities as part of a group of more than five people (that is closer than a 2 meter distance), unless they all reside in the same household. At this time, organized practices, games or outdoor sporting competitions of any kind are not permitted.
Municipalities or organizations that operate outdoor rinks are to take reasonable steps to ensure that people using the facility are aware of the requirements of the current public health orders relating to the rinks, including by posting proper signage and/or a social media and website communication strategy that includes the safe use of the outdoor rink. Municipalities and organizations must ensure that dressing rooms, warming shacks and other outdoor facilities associated with outdoor sporting or recreational activities are closed while the orders are in effect.
