PRECAUTIONS FOR SKATING GUESTS
All persons are strongly advised to avoid visiting the Venue with any personal notice or sign of illness or symptom of COVID-19.
All guests entering the Venue and at all times when inside the Venue’s skate-change/bench area and ice surface IS REQUIRED TO WEAR A PROPER FACE MASK or nose/mouth cloth face covering.
To further define the 6-foot social distancing-points, graphic stickers or bright-yellow gaffers-type tape is applied to the ground or onto the rubber floor mats within the Venue.
It is recommended to have a SEPARATE ENTRY GATE and SEPARATE EXIT GATE onto the ice surface, to minimize cross-traffic of skaters. At the time of ice resurfacing, BOTH GATES should be used to exit all skaters, and for re-entry of all skaters.
Benches and/or chairs for skaters are arranged to allow for 6-feet of social distancing between individuals and their household units.
A gel/foam disinfectant will be located throughout the Venue.
All primary touchpoints will be regularly disinfected and wiped clean— ON-THE-HOUR, EVERY HOUR of the daily operation:
Service counters, POS screens, credit card processing equipment.
Handrails in the rink entrance and skate-change area.
Rink perimeter dasher board handrails.
UPON THE HANDOUT and UPON THE RETURN of each and every rental ice skate, spray disinfectant will be applied to each skate exterior and interior by a staff member—at the skate rental counter.
REDUCTION IN VENUE CAPACITY TO ALLOW FOR PHYSICAL/SOCIAL DISTANCING
The standard capacity of the ice rink surface, during normal times of operation, is 1-skater per 25-square feet (1:25) to 1-skater per 32-square feet (1:32); these ranges of public capacity are typical fire-marshal recommendations.
During this COVID-19 pandemic period, the capacity of the ice rink surface WILL BE REDUCED as follows:
1-skater per 50-square feet (1:50); this is a reduction in the capacity of the ice rink surface in the range of 36-50%, versus typical capacity limits set for ice rinks by various fire marshals. This capacity will allow for proper social distancing between individuals, couples, and families.
**Be advised that during the typical non-pandemic operating seasons, during most hours of operation, typical rinks NEVER reach this capacity.
For your information, 6-foot-diameter social distancing guideline is 1-person per 36-square feet (1:36). The skating capacity of 1-skater per 50-square feet (1:50) stated above is at least 38%-LESS than the CDC’s social distancing guideline, allowing for free-movement around the ice surface by skaters, with each individual, couple, or family-group to have a reasonable space to skate.
The skate-change/bench area of the ice rink should be limited to a capacity of 1-person per 36-square feet (1:36), the exact social distancing guideline of the CDC. This capacity and arranged benches or standing-areas will allow individuals or household units to sit or stand or at least 6-feet apart.
