Due to the current weather situation in Leuven, many people want to skate on ice. However, this is not going to be possible on the ponds in the Provincial Domain, Kessel-Lo. The city of Leuven has therefore placed a general ban on skating.
Skating itself is corona proof, but as a lot of people congregate on the ice, you get a gathering which is against the measures to limit the spread of the coronavirus. Likewise, skating on a number of ponds in the Provincial Domain, Kessel-Lo is dangerous. This is because the ponds do not have ice surfaces strong enough for skating.
