Orange Restrict Update #2
Submitted By Katie Haasen on Monday, December 7, 2020
Following an update this morning with MLHU, they have provided more details to Thames Centre staff, and have advised that Regulation 364/20 does provide for one parent or guardian for each person under the age of 18. Thames Centre's policy will now reflect that. Therefore, Thames Centre will follow current facility guidelines of 1 parent/guardian per family.

Thames Centre staff have been working hard and we were lucky to get back on the ice as soon as we did.  DMHA parents/guardians need to be respectful of the current rules of only ONE parent/guardian per player. There are no siblings allowed in. Our association has been very fortunate thus far that spectators have been permitted as they have not been permitted in many arenas, including in two other municipalities in Middlesex County.

Please be cognizant of how we handle our opinions to regulation changes as it can be very frustrating to volunteers and staff members who receive numerous complaints via emails and social media posts. Staff and volunteers are doing the best they can to ensure the safety of our community members while determining how best to continue running minor sports in our municipality.

Thank you in advance for strictly following these rules. Be aware that Thames Centre can go above and beyond Regulation and provincial framework with further precautions if they feel that is best for public safety.
