Notice of Town of Aurora Facility Closures
Submitted By Joanne Rey-Reiter on Tuesday, January 4, 2022
In accordance with provincial guidelines announced yesterday morning, the Town of Aurora will be closing our facilities Wednesday, January 5. 

The announcement, made by Premier Doug Ford yesterday, outlined the Province’s move back into “Modified Stage 2” with a series of restrictions imposed to help contain the spread of COVID-19. 

This is from MPP Christine Elliott
"In response to recent trends that show an alarming increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations, the government, in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health, is temporarily moving the province into Step Two of its Roadmap to Reopen with modifications that take into account the province’s successful vaccination efforts.  These time-limited measures will help blunt transmission and prevent hospitals from becoming overwhelmed as the province continues to accelerate its booster dose rollout. 

The province will return to the modified version of Step Two of the Roadmap to Reopen effective Wednesday, January 5, 2022 at 12:01 a.m. for at least 21 days (until January 26, 2022), subject to trends in public health and health system indicators. While the risks for severe illness are lower with Omicron than with the previous variants of concern, it is far more transmissible and hospitalizations are expected to continue to increase, placing greater pressure on our health care system."


With these restrictions in place, we are working with Town Staff, to extend our season into late or end of April. This will allow our House League program to make up games and practices missed.  Some of these events could possibly take place during the week in April.  We will not know until we see what ice and how much is available for us.  As for the rep program, we will also look to fulfill all teams ice allocations with practice ice if all home games cannot be made up.

Let's continue to do our part and hope we can continue back to some type of normal later this month.

Stay safe everyone.

Joe Bentolila
President
