July 22, 2020; Liverpool, NS: Plans are now underway for Phase 3 re-opening of Queens Place Emera Centre, which includes the installation of ice. Staff are now taking bookings for August 3, 2020 and thereafter. The arena re-opening will require significant safety protocols to be in place. Users are being advised of these when booking ice.
“Safety is our number one priority. The rules and protocols for Queens Place Emera Centre are constantly being reviewed and re-evaluated based on current Public Health protocols. The safety measures in effect at Queens Place Emera Centre always meet or exceed recommendations of Public Health with regard to COVID-19. We look forward to the gradual increase in usage of Queens Place Emera Centre,” said David Dagley, Mayor of Region of Queens Municipality. There are different protocols in place at Queens Place Emera Centre for the fitness centre, indoor track and arena. The public gathering areas, such as the lobby are not open to the public at this point in time, due to current Public Health protocols.
Queens Place Emera Centre closed to the public on March 16, 2020, as a result of Public Health direction due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ice was removed from the arena, and maintenance work on the arena and other parts of Queens Place Emera Centre was completed during the closure. On June 22, 2020, the indoor track and fitness centre opened as part of the phased reopening of the facility as part of Phase 1, and on July 20, 2020, fitness classes resumed as part of the Phase 2 re-opening plans.
