Ontario Goes Into Lockdown

Ontario goes into lockdown.  Read the official Gov’t of ON Lockdown Slide deck.

The good news is that cross country ski facilities are able to remain open during the province wide lockdown announced yesterday by the Government of Ontario.  Unfortunately, team training, club programming, coaching courses etc are not allowed under the lockdown regulations.

Lockdown is in place until January 9th in Northern ON, and January 23 in Southern ON.  Of course, these regulations may be extended.  A list of Health Units considered to be in Southern ON is available in Appendix A.

Let’s take this time to get ready for our COVID Challenges (live links to each challenge embedded in the document).  The Challenges are lockdown friendly and allow athletes to continue to log their KMs for the KM Challenge and do strava segments.  The COVID Cups, which begin on January 16 & 17, are also possible with creative coach planning.

Please follow the public health guidelines which include not travelling outside your region.  Athletes in the National Capital District are reminded of our QC-ON Border Training Guidelines.
