As you may have already heard, there was a change to the PHO Order on Gatherings and Events this week that affects adult outdoor sport. Effective immediately, group sport activities like training and drills are permitted for adults 22 and older, provided they meet the following conditions:
1) If the group sport is indoors, only two persons participate (no change);
2) If the group sport is outdoors, only ten persons participate (increased from four people);
3) The participants maintain a distance of three metres from one another while engaged in the group sport, unless the participants reside in the same private residence (no change);
4) There are no spectators, unless the presence of a spectator is necessary in order to provide care to a participant (no change).
All other restrictions on indoor activities remain in place and there are no changes for youth sport to report today. This change for adult sport aligns with the loosening of restrictions announced on Friday allowing 10 people to gather outdoors while maintaining our other layers of protection while indoors. We hope this will be welcome news for some of your members that offer adult sport programming.
