The Province announced on January 3rd that we will be moving into Step Two of the Roadmap to Reopen Plan as of Wednesday January 5th at 12:01am. Step Two implements widespread measures and restrictions, including closures, to reduce the transmission and hospitalization of the COVID-19 virus. This closure affects all indoor sport and recreational facilities including arenas & community centres, the King Heritage & Cultural Centre and the King Township Municipal Centre.
