Each player, coach, staff member, referee, and others should check his/her temperature at home, and refrain from
participation if he or she has a fever (≥100.3 degrees F). All coaches, players, referees and others (i.e.

school and healthcare provider.

Covid-19 Risk Mitigation Protocols
The more caution we take, the better chances we have of minimal interruptions to our respective seasons and fun. By now, we all know the common sense measures we can all follow to keep our kids on the ice this season. If we all do our part we can prevent interruptions for all of us.
Screening and policies for employees and guests
Staff and guest are encouraged to self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. The following policies and procedures are being implemented to assess staff and guest’s health status prior to entering the Four Seasons Center Ice Arena and to report if they are sick or experiencing symptoms inside the ice arenas.

Basic infection prevention measures are being implemented at our arena at all ties. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water frequently throughout the day. We encourage staff, players, and guests to bring and use hand sanitizer before, during, and after being in the rink. Four Seasons Center will have hand sanitizers dispensers that can be used for hand hygiene.
Staff and guests are asked to leave their masks on when coughing or sneezing. Avoid touching their face with their hands, Respiratory etiquette will be demonstrated on COVID -19 Best Practices for Ice Rinks posters which will be posted throughout the ice arena (see Appendix B).
