Toronto relaxes COVID-19 rink rules as winter activities move ‘toward normal’
The city announced it would be restarting ice skating and curling, and it was encouraging people to get out and take part in outdoor activities and sports.
The city also announced the return of the popular city’s free concert series, The Great Escape, and was encouraging everyone to watch more movies.
“I will be at the Curling Rink with my wife and son,” he said. “I want to invite everyone to come and see us.”
But the city says there are still some restrictions in place in the city’s health zone and that the rink will be monitored closely through the winter months as more precautionary measures are brought into place.
Penticton is on track to open its outdoor ice rink at the end of January, but the city says you need to be at the arena by Jan. 6 to be able to apply for a skating license.
Meanwhile the city says it’s encouraging people to get outside and take advantage of winter activities and enjoy their city this holiday season.
The city says most of you will have to make a few changes to your winter schedule.
The first will be at the rink, the city says.
“We encourage you to arrive early and apply for a rink opening date by Wednesday (Jan. 5) to ensure you have the best opportunity to join us in ice time. “
The Great Escape will be running throughout the week.
You’ll be able to see a variety of free live concerts every night.
On Friday (Jan. 15), the City of Penticton is celebrating Canadian artist and his recent album, I Will Be There.
It’s a celebration that the city says it’s had quite a few of over the years.
“He’s been such a huge part of the city. Our City Hall was originally built by him and his wife,” says city spokesman Dan Bower.
“So this is the perfect opportunity to pay tribute to him.”
There’s also the Great Escape movie series.
