Update from North Huron re:NHWCC
Submitted By Dave Tiffin on Fri 11 27, 20
The information below is directly from the North Huron Recreation Department as to protocols at the Complex until further notice:
===============

Hello North Huron Ice User Groups;  
North Huron, under Ontario Public Health and the Huron Perth Public Health Unit has moved from YELLOW coded category to the ORANGE coded category as of Monday, Nov. 23, 2020 in regards to COVID-19 safety measures/restrictions. Please click the "Read More" for details.



In doing so,  some of the restrictions/measures have changed from the YELLOW category and we at the Recreation Department needed some clarification.   Below are the questions that we asked Huron Perth Public Health in order to get the clarification required to move forward in association with the orange measure.  The answers from our Public Health representative are in red:  

1.  The North Huron Recreation Department knows that face coverings are not required while exercising in pool and fitness centre,  but what are all the other exemptions that apply to NHWCC complex in orange?  Fast Masks are required at all times unless participating in an activity.  This includes all arena participants, volunteers, coaches, parents and guardians.  

2.   What is the total number of spectators allowed in the whole building? No spectators are permitted in the facility, unless there is someone under the age of 18 participating in activities in the facility. In this case 1 parent or guardian may accompany them. This is for the entire facility at one time, and they must be able to physically distance.  

3.    Is the arena allowed to have 50 spectators under ORANGE?  NO SPECTATORS ARE PERMITTED IN THE ARENA, UNLESS THERE IS SOMEONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 PARTICIPATING IN ACTIVITIES IN THE FACILITY.  IN THIS CASE – 1 PARENT OR GUARDIAN MAY ACCOMPANY THEM.   THEY MUST BE ABLE TO PHYSICALLY DISTANCE.  ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS!  

4.    Under the Measures for Sports and Recreational fitness under orange the first bullet point is “maximum 50 people per facility in all combined recreational fitness spaces or programs ( not pools, rinks at arena, community centres etc) can you please clarify how this applies to the NHWCC building as a whole and each area? So for the arena-normal gathering limits apply (up to 50 participants on the ice at one time this includes participants, coaches, trainers, referees, staff, Etc..) , for the pool-normal gathering limits apply. For all other rooms (fitness, weights, squash courts, etc.) 50 people total can be in these rooms combined. So you basically have 3 pods of gathering limits: arena, pool and all other rooms. There can still only be 10 people per class as well.    

All other protocols/guidelines/COVID safety measures that your organization has been following up to now are still in place.  For example:  traffic flow, no dressing rooms for certain age groups, screening and logging participants, no showers, physically distancing – 3 metres apart, entering and exiting buildings according to signage that is posted, etc.   Thanks so much for co-operating with the municipality, Ontario Public Health and Huron-Perth Public Health as we navigate through these very different and ever-changing times. 

We appreciate your support.   Let us know if you have any questions.

Rachelle Gerrie,
North Huron Recreation Department
