Ice Arena Protocols Submitted To CSHL

Ice Arena Protocols Provided to CSHL

As of September 23, 2021

 KSU - Face coverings are required by anyone 5-years of age and older inside buildings at all times except on ice-practice and play.  Coaches must wear face coverings during practice and on bench.  Players shall keep their face coverings on until they put on their helmet to exit to the benches and shall immediately put it back on upon removal of their helmet.

Gilmour Arena -UPDATED 1/4/2022:

1. We still require masks on at all times for everyone except while competing on the ice.

2. Social distance when you can at all times while in the facility.

3. 2 spectators per player and coach are permitted during all scheduled events. This is a capacity limit so if someone needs more spectators but a player has none they can use theirs so we still stay under capacity within the building. We encourage the use of the LiveBarn streaming service and Boxcast when available as well to limit foot traffic.

4. Please exit the facility as soon as possible after your event has concluded.

5. Regular hand washing and sanitizing is strongly encouraged.

6. A front table person will be there to check you in at most times to make sure COVID protocols are being followed. Please follow all posted signage as well.

7. No tailgating or large group gatherings in the parking lot are permitted.

8. No concession usage will be available.

9. Restrooms are available but we ask that we try and limit congregated traffic in those areas.

10. We ask that for away events we are following all posted and published COVID protocols for those facilities as well.
