On April 7, 2021, Ontario imposes a province-wide “stay at home” order in their COVID-19 response framework. As a facility operator, the Municipality of Thames Centre must follow rules set out by the Province and the Middlesex-London Health Unit (MLHU). We have been working closely with the MLHU, all other municipalities within our County and minor sports associations to establish facility guidelines that prioritize participants safely enjoying our ice, track, gymnasiums and Senior Centre.
We know that the changes in rules over the past weeks and months have been frustrating and we appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we take the necessary steps to keep everyone safe during these challenging times.
Unfortunately, the move from the “emergency brake” to the "stay at home" order means that as of Saturday, April 3, 2021, all sports and recreational facilities will be closed. That being said, as of April 3, 2021, the FlightExec Centre and Thorndale Lions Community Centre will be locked and shutdown.
Here are some FAQ’s to assist:
