Brock Sports, Recreation updating plans as province eases restrictions

Brock Sports and Brock Recreation are preparing to adjust capacity limits throughout the Walker Sports Complex facilities following this week’s announcement by the Province of Ontario of easing pandemic-related restrictions.

As of Thursday, Feb. 17, Brock is allowing spectators at its varsity home games with a 50 per cent capacity limit.

The first game back with spectators will be on Sunday, Feb. 20, when the Brock women’s volleyball team hosts the Western Mustangs at Bob Davis Gymnasium at 2 p.m.

Meanwhile, Brock Recreation is maintaining its 50 per cent capacity limit with masks required at all times.

Capacity limits are expected to gradually increase throughout the Walker Sports Complex in the coming weeks, according to Karen McAllister-Kenny, Director, Brock Recreation.

“We will steadily increase our capacity while maintaining our priority of keeping all participants and staff safe,” she said. “We continue to follow Ontario’s regulations and Niagara Region Public Health protocols.”

This week’s update from the province does not impact Brock University’s existing protocols, including:

Students, faculty and staff have access to the Zone Fitness Centre, gymnasia, pool, running track and other fitness and training areas. Access must be booked in advance.
