The Robert Hartley Sports Complex in Hawkesbury opens its doors to the public again.

The municipal office announced the reopening of Hawkesbury’s main indoor recreation facility to residents for some activities now that the Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) region has an Orange COVID-19 rating.

The multisports room in the complex reopened to the public Wednesday morning, February 17. A restricted opening hours plan is in place for the multisports room, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., until February 21. Starting February 22 opening hours will extend from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The arena will be open for free skating, February 18, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

EOHU staff will reassess the sanitary measures in place for the indoor swimming pool at the sports complex to determine if the pool can reopen to the public. Details on when the pool and the indoor rink will be available for regular use will be announced at a future date. The five outdoor skating rinks are open to the public.

Everyone using the sports complex facilities must follow COVID-19 prevention measures, including wearing a mask while inside. Users of the facility must follow a reservation process, which also includes COVID-19 prevention measures. Details are on the municipal website, at www.hawkesbury.ca, in the Living section under the Recreation tab.

Only people who live within the EOHU region are allowed access to the sports complex.
