COVID Update / Questions

We have recently had some questions about if skaters should come to the rink or stay home. The club is following the guidance of the CDC and the DHS. See below for guidance from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. I understand that some of the guidelines are hard to navigate. We ask families to make the safest decision possible.

Should my skater come to the rink?

Yes: (Skater should be able to answer yes to all of the following)

  • They do not have a pending Covid test
  • They currently do not have any Covid symptoms
  • They are able to attend school
  • They have not been in close contact with someone with Covid

No: (If the skater answers yes to any of the following)

  • They have been asked to remain home from school
  • They have a pending Covid test
  • They have one or more Covid symptoms: cough (new onset or worsening chronic cough), shortness of breath, fever, chills, sore throat, runny nose, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell
  • They have been in close contact with a person who has been diagnosed with Covid: You were within 6 ft. of a person who has Covid for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period, you have had direct exposure to respiratory secretions (cough, sneeze, shared a glass…), you had direct physical contact with the person (hug or handshake), you cared for a person with Covid, You lived or live with a person who has Covid, You stayed overnight with them for at least one night in the same household

Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our skaters. We also want to minimize disruptions to our skating season. Masking is optional but recommended when skaters will be in close contact with each other. The board appreciates your support in following the above guidelines.
