COVID-19 Update: February 5, 2021

Today the province announced that recognized businesses and organizations can host events with spectators. A maximum of 150 people will be permitted outdoors, and a maximum of 100 will be permitted indoors. Spectator allowances are subject to facility regulations and venues cannot exceed 50 percent capacity. This number is in addition to athletes/coaches/officials, etc., who can gather in groups of 60 as part of the field of play limit. Please check with your facility to find out about guidelines specific to that venue. These regulations will be in effect from 12:00am on Monday, February 8 until 11:59pm on Sunday, March 7. Please see our FAQ about the new regulations. We hope that it will help clarify any questions you may have. 

Quick Notes

  • Participants will be able to train and compete within their regular competitive schedule, however, events and competitions that bring together teams (and, or) individual participants that would not regularly compete against each other (such as provincial championships) will not be permitted. 
  • These regulations exclude schools. 
  • Centre 200 in Sydney and Scotiabank Centre in Halifax can host events with multiple groups of 150 when they are kept separate using their own entrances, exits, and washrooms.
