Lisa Beare, Minister of Citizens’ Services, has released the following statement regarding the Robson Square ice rink:
“Unfortunately, we are unable to open the Robson Square ice rink to the public at this time.
“This decision has been made as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic and the orders and direction of the provincial health officer to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in B.C.
“The revised Provincial Gathering and Events Order states organized and structured events involving a group of participants are not permitted. This includes public ice skating at Robson Square.
“We will continue to assess the situation and closely follow the advice and guidance of the provincial health officer as it relates to the Robson Square ice rink.”
