The City of Lethbridge is expanding spectator access to its arenas.

Starting Tuesday, Sept. 1, a maximum of 50 spectators will be permitted for each ice session.

Spectators must wear a mask at all times inside the arena and, in order to follow public health protocols, they’ll be assigned rotating zones for each session so the unused area can be cleaned.

Arenas at ATB Centre and Nicholas Sheran are currently open for booking by organizations or established groups.

Other arenas in the city are scheduled to re-open gradually throughout the month.

Public skating is expected to resume in October.
