Coronavirus: Halifax shrinks number of spectators allowed in municipal arenas – Halifax

Halifax will scale back the number of people allowed into its municipally run facilities and has cancelled some bookings altogether, as cases of COVID-19 rise in the Halifax Regional Municipality.

In a press release issued on Friday the municipality says it has cancelled all bookings at Auburn Drive High School and Graham Creighton Junior High until at least Dec. 6.

The Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM), which coordinates bookings at all Halifax Regional Centre for Education schools, did not explicitly provide a reason for the decision.

There are no changes to the following locations at this time:

The HRM says that rental groups will remain responsible for COVID-19 screening and tracking of all spectators.

No food or drink is permitted at the arenas and masks must be worn at all times.
