  • Social distancing of at least six feet must be maintained at all times both inside and outside the rink.

  • Skaters will not be allowed to put their skates on inside the lobby.

  • Skaters must arrive dressed and with their hair done. Locker rooms and bathrooms will be off limits.

  • Skaters may only bring their water and any medication they need to take during their testing time (e.g., inhaler).

  • For MIF/FS Tests:

    • Masks are required by skaters during warm-ups.

    • Masks are optional when skaters test if they are alone on the ice while testing.
