COVID Rules for current season

Current COVID Safety Regulations (Update 8/25/2021)

The following rules will be in effect for league games until further notice.  We will be checking state regulations often and will update these requirements to meet state mandates as applicable:

LOCKER ROOMS AND SHOWERS ARE OPEN:  Although rinks are now allowing the use of the locker rooms and showers again,  players are encouraged to limit time in the locker room to no more than 30 minutes before and after the game.   Rules vary from rink to rink, but most now allow use of the locker rooms at least for dressing and undressing, but check with rink staff on site if you are unsure about the rules specific to that rink.

MASKS MUST BE WORN AT ALL TIMES WHEN INSIDE THE BUILDING:  The current Washington state regulations require all people to wear masks inside - regardless of vaccination status. The good news, is that the state has clarified this ruling for sports:  While competing in sports activities, players and officials are NOT required to wear masks.  

SPECTATORS WILL BE LIMITED:  In an effort to keep the number of people congregating to a minimum, spectators to games are being limited.  The maximum attendees for any contest is 200 people, however some venues have lower limits.  Review spectator limits for your building prior to inviting guests to watch games.

DISTANCING MUST BE OBSERVED WHEN POSSIBLE:  The six foot distance requirement is no longer in effect, so the roster limits at games have been eliminated. Teams will be allowed to have up to 20 players on their roster, however each team should set responsible limits for how many players attend each game.  Also - players must observe distancing requirements while changing after games as much as possible to respect the health and safety of others.
