Modified Arena Procedures

Ramsey County arenas aim to provide the best experience while still meeting public health best practices to keep all arena patrons safe. 

Arena COVID-19 policies have been developed with recommendations and guidelines from the executive orders issued by Governor Walz, the Minnesota Department of Health's Guidelines for Youth and Adult Sports, Minnesota Department of Education for high school activities, Minnesota Hockey and USA Hockey. 

Updated March 1, 2022.

General requirements and guidelines

  • Anyone with symptoms of illness or who have family members with symptoms of illness, has tested positive for COVID-19, or has been exposed to a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, should stay home and not participate in team activities. CDC and Minnesota Department of Health rules and guidelines for self-quarantine should be followed.
  • As of March 1, 2022, masks are no longer required in Ramsey County buildings. Masks are recommended for those who are unvaccinated, immunocompromised or at high-risk for complications associated with COVID-19.
