Get ready for some (possible) winter fun. According to the City of Toronto, outdoor ice rinks are slated to open on November 28 and December 5, weather permitting.

“The City of Toronto is working with Toronto Public Health on operation plans for its outdoor ice rinks and remains committed to providing people with safe opportunities for recreation during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said the City in an email to Daily Hive.

Access to the City’s outdoor rinks, participant capacity, and types of ice use are decided based on orders mandated by the Province of Ontario, and the recommendations from Toronto’s Medical Officer of Health, that are in place at the time of opening.

“People can expect capacity at the City’s rinks to be reduced and measures that facilitate physical distancing and enhanced cleaning of facilities to be in place,” said the City.

More information on outdoor ice rinks will be available closer to the end of November.
