Registered groups can use its pool and ice rink starting Saturday and then drop-in swims will open to the public on Sept. 28. Meeting room rentals will start on Nov. 1.

The Guelph Sports Dome and the Evergreen Seniors Community Centre are scheduled to open on Oct. 18.

While the Guelph Wellington Seniors Association announced it is not running any in-person activities until September 2021, the city said that does not impact its own seniors’ programs.

The West End Community Centre has been reopened since the beginning of August, but meeting room rentals start on Nov. 1.

All of the city’s facilities have updated health and safety measures in place. Masks or face coverings are mandatory except in the pool or on the ice.
