Session Day Procedure – Controlling the number of people in the building and on the ice surface and the movement of people within the facility is critical for compliance with Maryland Strong: Roadmap to recovery and CDC recommended guidelines. Social distancing will always be in place. Guidelines currently are as follows:
- No parents or spectators allowed in the building to limit capacity. Skaters should arrive fully dressed, including skates. No hockey or figure skating bags will be allowed in the rink.
- Skaters will be dropped off at the front door. Please enter through the left 2 front doors. This will be the only entrance to the facility. This entrance will be clearly marked.
- Skates will need to be worn into the rink so make sure you have skate guards.
- Door will be opened 5 minutes prior to the start of your session.
- Skaters and coaches should wait until rink staff opens door then proceed inside practicing social distancing as they head for the door and wait to be admitted. Marks will be placed on the sidewalk. Only one skater will enter at a time, be checked in as registered for the session and have their temperature taken via infrared thermometer measured on the forehead. Any skaters with a temperature over 100.4 degrees, will not be allowed to enter the facility.
- Skaters and coaches can check in early at the outside cashier window in order to get into the rink faster once the building is open.
- If a skater is not on the pre-registered list for that session, they will be turned away. There will be no method to pay at the rink.
- Parents should remain in the parking lot for 10 minutes after the schedule start time of the session to make sure the skater is good to go and must be in the parking lot when the skater exits.
