On Friday July 31, 2020, The Province of N.S. made an annoucement that masks would be mandatory in indoor public spaces. This new rule will impact Digby Area Recreation Facilities. Here’s how:

Everyone entering Digby Arena & Digby Curling Centre you will be required to wear masks. There are a few exceptions.

  • Children under the age of 2 do not have to wear a mask.
  • Children aged 3 & 4 should wear a mask, but if parents can’t get them to wear it, it will not be enforced.
  • Persons who are unable to wear a mask for medical reasons, including those with intellectual disabilities if they refuse to wear them, are exempt.

Masks must be put on by patrons before entering the facility. If you do not have a mask on, staff/volunteers at the door will remind you that you need to be wearing one to enter. Masks must be worn everywhere around the facility except for when you are participating in your activity.

You DO have to wear a mask in:

  • The entrance of the facility
  • Hallways
  • Washrooms
  • Dressing rooms
  • Meeting rooms

You do NOT have to wear a mask when you are on the ice surface.
