Sarnia is preparing to reopen two arenas March 1.
Progressive Auto Sales Arena and Clearwater Arena were both expected to open on Monday with the focus of getting youth back on the ice, city staff said.
Unless another full lockdown is ordered, Clearwater would stay open until March 28, when ice from both pads would be removed at the regular end of the arena season.
The plan is to prohibit spectators and anyone else not participating in on-ice activities over the four-week period.
Sarnia Arena will remain closed, the city said.
