Return to Sport Update

July 6th, 2020

Recently the Province announced some changes to gathering sizes for indoor and outdoor events.  We have been in contact with the Province in order to get some clarification on the changes that came into effect on July 3, 2020.

The current NS Sport Guidelines for sport activities, such as practices and games remain in place. This means that there can be a maximum of 50 participants on a field of play, socially distanced, if the facility space allows, or there can be groups of 10 participants who are not distancing, provided each group is distanced from the other, again to a total of 50 participants.  As per previous communications, it is recommended that each group of 10 remains the same as much as possible.

As of July 3, facilities that are registered businesses or organizations that are hosting amateur sporting events and competitions will be subject to the recently announced gathering limits of up to 250 people socially distanced for outdoor events, and up to 50% capacity to a limit of 200 people for indoor events.  It is important to note that this applies only to facilities hosting events that are registered businesses or organizations, and the NS Sport Guidelines remain in effect for the field of play for each host facility.  Please note that the up to 50 individuals involved in the field of play are part of the overall gathering numbers (up to 200 indoors or 250 outdoors).
