Parents With Siblings Concerns
The City Of London have released a statement surrounding the current regulations involving the one guest per player rule in each of our city arenas. Please read below for further clarification:

"We can appreciate the situation that you and your family are in. Unfortunately, at this time we will not be allowing any additional people into the arena besides the one parent/guardian currently permitted which includes younger siblings not being allowed as well. There are several reasons for this decision. The key driver being that we are limited through the provincial order on the number of people that are permitted to be in the arena at any given time. 

Currently we are permitted a total of 50 people inclusive of participants, parents/guardians, coaches and officials.  We also need to ensure that there is sufficient space for everyone in the arena watching to maintain a 2 meter distance. After internal discussions on average participant counts as well as square footage of the arenas, we have determined that we must retain the 1 parent/guardian viewer rule at this time.  Should there be changes to the provincial order in the future we will revisit this at that time.

We will continue to monitor the situation, the provincial orders and Middlesex London Health Unit advice and advise if we are able to make amendment to our current protocols

Again we understand the situation that this may put some families in but are going to be maintaining our decision that only one parent/guardian can be in the facility to spectate"
