Effective Friday, October 15, 2021 there will be no limit to the number of spectators allowed in Town arenas and pool viewing areas. Anyone entering the Town’s recreation facilities must show proof of vaccination and identification, complete the COVID-19 screening and contact tracing and wear a mask or face covering.

This change in capacity restrictions comes as a result of the Provincial Government’s decision to allow 100 per cent capacity for concert venues, theatres, cinemas, spectator areas of sports and recreation facilities and meeting and event spaces, effective last Saturday.

The announcement was made as more Ontarians have received a vaccine, and while restrictions have been lifted, these settings require proof of vaccination for anyone 12 years or older or those who have a valid medical exemption.

“We are pleased with the Provincial announcement that the spectator limit has been lifted. This will allow entire families to once again be able to watch their loved ones participate in their activities. While this is great news for our residents, I do want to remind all visitors to our facilities that with the increased capacity and the requirement to complete screening, contract tracing and confirm proof of vaccination status, we anticipate longer lines to enter our facilities. We ask for your patience during this time. To help expedite the process, we recommend you arrive early and have your information ready to present to our staff,” says Aurora Mayor Tom Mrakas

The new capacity limits do not include fitness centres and personal training. Indoor meeting and event spaces are subject to capacity based on physical distancing.

We ask residents and visitors to be patient and kind with our staff as we follow the new amendments to the orders and keep your health and safety top of mind.
