You have all been so very patient and it has been amazing, but I know there are some of you really waiting for more to happen. We’ve been in phase two for a couple of weeks now. I’ve been actively receiving contact tracing forms and groups have been meeting safely. Thank you all so much for that and for the work you are doing.
I can now say that Ealdormere will be moving into phase 3 of our Kingdom reopening plan as of July 30th, 2021. There are a number of things that will be staying the same (pre-reg, contact tracing, masks, etc) but there are a few changes.
Please review the reopening plan here (scroll down to seneschal’s documents):
One change is the attendance limits. Our reopening plan allows for indoor and outdoor gatherings with the numbers based on provincial guidelines, which are currently set at 100 people for outdoor gatherings and 25 people for indoor gatherings (28 July 2021).
Another change is that, after reviewing the legislation and the guidelines of the local Public health units, we have developed the safety tools that we need to have in place that allows us to resume armoured combat and fencing practices. ** (see note at end).
Yup, you read that right. Martial practices can begin again as of 30 Jul 2021.
There are things that will need to happen at practices and that information is getting sent to all the seneschals and marshals. As well, the required safety plan and day-of practice checklist will be posted shortly on the Kingdom website for everyone to read.
As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com
Reminder: email is the best route to get to me as facebook comments can be unreliable.
**(Except Caldrithig, we are working with Ottawa Public health and Ottawa by-law and waiting on some clarification. For now, Ottawa can not have any armoured combat or fencing practices. As soon as this changes, I will let you know).
