Minnesota Hockey today announced modifications to its COVID-19 policies. The Phase 6 Return to Play Rules & Guidelines will take effect on Monday, March 1st. Highlights include:
- The spectator rule will now match the State of Minnesota and Minnesota Department of Health policy for indoor facilities of 25% capacity up to a 250 max. Please note each individual rink and arena will be affected differently by this change. Some rinks may still be limited to 1 spectator per player according to their capacity.
- Associations and arenas will need to communicate to teams how many spectators may be allowed for each game and will be expected to host a pre-registration or check-in in case contact tracing is needed.
- One ice resurface will be allowed during games.
- The three-official system may be used.
The complete Phase 6 Return to Play Rules & Guidelines are available here.
Minnesota Hockey would also like to thank everyone for your sacrifices and perseverance this season! Your commitment to doing the inconvenient and at times frustrating things required this year are making the goal of finishing the season successfully a reality.
