COVID-19 Update: Additional Public Health Measures Being Implemented in Greater Sudbury

As COVID-19 cases in Greater Sudbury continue to rise at an alarming rate, Public Health Sudbury & Districts has implemented additional restrictions to reduce virus transmission in the community and relieve mounting pressures on the local health care system.

The following changes to municipal services will come into effect Wednesday, November 10 @ 12:01 a.m.:

Capacity limits (50%) are once again in effect at local arenas. Masks continue to be required for anyone entering the arena facility. Only skaters engaged in intense physical activity are not required to wear a mask.

Proof of full vaccination is required for anyone 12 and older who is entering the building as a spectator, participant, coach, officiant or volunteer. As of November 10, @ 12:01 a.m., this also includes those entering for the sole purpose of participating in an organized sport. Spectators 11 and younger must be accompanied by an adult who is fully vaccinated.

Arena guidelines will be updated and posted online tomorrow and can be found by visiting this link https://www.greatersudbury.ca/play/arenas/.

Carmichael Arena remains in use as a vaccination clinic.
