COVID-19 Rules for Outdoor Rink Usage
Outdoor skating rinks and ponds, including those designated as unsupervised, will be monitored for compliance to these restrictions.

- Boarded rinks now have a posted maximum capacity of 25 individuals.
- No nets allowed.
- No games allowed, including "shinny/scrub".
- Sticks and pucks are allowed for individual or family use only.
- Skaters using the outdoor rinks must maintain a separation of at least two metres from other users (excluding members of the same household).

Please note:
- Masks/face coverings are recommended.
- Heated change-rooms are locked and unavailable for skate changing.
- Washroom facilities in the change-rooms are available for use when the rink attendant is present in the change-room. Those needing to use the washroom can knock on the door to gain access.

Thunder Bay's boarded outdoor rinks are open for use, under the conditions and rules noted above.
