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. 

General requirements & 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.
  • Face coverings are required at all times for all participants, coaches, instructors, volunteers and spectators in common areas within Ramsey County buildings – staff will be enforcing face coverings when teams are entering and exiting arenas.
  • We recommend skaters, coaches/instructors and spectators limit their time inside the facility and skaters arrive partially dressed ready to play when possible.
