See communication:
I, Dr. Christopher Mackie, Medical Officer of Health for the Middlesex-London Health Unit, ORDER YOU TO TAKE THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS, effective 12:01 a.m. on October 24, 2020:

1.      The maximum number permitted on a field of play, such as an indoor soccer field, ice pad, basketball court, or similarly space, is 25 people, inclusive of staff, referees, and/or instructors.

a.       For further clarity, as an example, a maximum of 25 people can be on a single ice pad at one time and would need to be divided in to groups that are adherent to the requirements outlined in section 1.


2.      For team sports in which substitutions are required, a maximum of 12 are permitted on the roster. For individuals who are not actively participating in the program or activity, a physical distance of 2 meters must be maintained between each individual.


3.      If participants are not wearing a helmet, face coverings should be worn when not actively participating in rigorous physical activity.

a.       Team sports may only be practised or played within the facility if they do not allow for physical contact between players or if they have been modified to avoid physical contact between the players.

b.      Organized team sports that are practiced or played by players in a league may only be practiced or played within the facility if the league either,

                                                                  i.      contain no more than 50 players and does not permit its teams to play against teams outside of the league, or

                                                               ii.       divides its teams into groups of 50 or fewer players and does not permit teams in different groups to play against one another or against teams outside of the league.

For further clarity, face coverings are not required for participants who are actively engaged in rigorous physical activity. However, face coverings are encouraged at all times if tolerated.
