COVID-19 Return to Play Guide

As we look forward to another skating season we have a duty to adjust our program to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 within our club and community. In consultation with the Municipality of Arran-Elderslie, Public Health and Skate Ontario we have comprised this document to identify the controls and policies that will be used to limit the spread of COVID-19.
