Deeside Leisure Centre and Ice Rink is currently closed to the public. The site has been selected as the location for the emergency hospital to serve the Eastern Area of North Wales (Flintshire and Wrexham) in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The hospital will remain available until there is no longer any need for additional capacity to support the delivery of health care services in North Wales. It is unlikely that Deeside will be returned to Aura for resumption as a leisure centre before early 2021.
