IYHA Jr Fuel Members and Friends,
We hope this message finds you safe and healthy. As most of you know, Governor Holcomb issued a new order with regard to COVID 19 that went into effect today (11/15/2020).
Since all of our rinks are located in Hamilton County, which is currently designated as “Orange”, one aspect of the order will affect our current operations. Starting tomorrow, a maximum of one parent/guardian per skater are allowed in the rink for practices and two will be allowed in for games. This will be strictly enforced by rink staff. Our venues will now be under more stringent surveillance by local health authorities. In order to keep our kids on the ice, we must comply!
We would also like to remind you of a few policies that have not changed but will be emphasized for the safety of our families.
Everybody is required to wear a face covering in the rinks. The only people allowed to take it off are players while they are on the ice. Coaches are required to wear a mask at all times. Players must wear a face covering during indoor off-ice training.
Do not enter the building more than 15 minutes before your game or practice. Please dress at home to avoid close contact in the locker rooms. The locker room is where a majority of our exposures leading to team quarantines have originated.
Spectators must remain outside the building until 5 minutes before the scheduled event. If your child needs help with equipment, please have it done before entering the building.
No gathering in the lobby after your event. Parents/guardians must exit immediately and wait for your player outside.
If your player or an immediate family member are experiencing even the mildest symptoms, STAY HOME.
If your player tests positive or has had confirmed exposure (see CDC contact tracing guidelines), you must notify your coach or team manager immediately. If a team is exposed, they will be shut down from all activities for the required time period.
Thank you for your cooperation. We all need to do our part so we can keep our players and families safe and on the ice.
