ARENA USE:

  • Groups will be designated a suitable amount of dressing rooms for proper physical distancing. This will allow participants to have a safe space to put on their helmet, gloves and skates prior to entering the ice surface.
  • Coaches will be asked to keep a safe distance from all participants.
  • Ice time will be conducted in cohort groups of maximum 50 participants, and on/ off ice sessions will be conducted in a way, as much as possible, to ensure proper physical distancing is being maintained.

SANITIZING:

  • Lobby, spectating area and public washrooms will be sanitized periodically throughout each day, according to AHS guidelines the facility adheres to.
  • Dressing room hallway benches will be sanitized and wiped between each group in the allotted time frame and the entire area will be sprayed down completely at the end of each night.
