General Guidelines:

  • At all times participants will adhere to Idaho Ice World (IIW), local, state, and federal requirements and guidelines. This includes but is not limited to social distancing and mask requirements. 
  • No persons displaying symptoms of cough, flu, or fever may enter the facility. Individuals who have possibly been exposed to someone who is sick should stay at home. Every player will follow travel guidelines and all guidelines set by the CDC. If any symptoms cause you to stay home or come into contact with anyone who tests positive, you will not be allowed to skate for 14 days.

Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

  • Fever or chills

  • If you think or know you had COVID-19, and had symptoms, you can be around others after:
    • 10 days since symptoms first appearedand
    • 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and
    • COVID-19 symptoms have improved (for example, cough, shortness of breath)

  • Immediately leave if you feel ill and immediately notify a Coach if a skater becomes ill with COVID-19 like symptoms or tests positive for COVID-19.
  • Social Distancing – For everyone’s safety, it’s critical to maintain the required social distance to help minimize risk of COVID-19 exposure. The minimum requirement for social distancing is six (6’) feet.
  • Skaters are REQUIRED to wear facemasks when inside the facility.  Due to the updated Central District Health public health order that took effect in the City of Boise on August 11th, all Idaho IceWorld users will be required to wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth when inside the facility, with the exception of when they are actively engaged in athletic competition, training, or practice within the confines of the ice surface. Coaches or instructors are required to wear a mask while on the ice at all times. In addition, coaches, instructors and participants not within the confines of the playing surface shall be required to wear a mask.
  • Skaters will be allowed inside the facility 15 minutes prior to their class. One adult may enter with a skater if that skater requires assistance with preparation.  Once skater is prepared, that adult must exit the building.  No spectators or sideline coaching. 
  • Visitors will use hand sanitizer before entering the building and are encouraged to limit touching surfaces during their stay. Multiple sanitizer stations will be available throughout the facility. 
  • Skaters’ personal items should be limited to skates with guards, water bottle and tissues. One equipment bag such as a Zuca Bag or other duffle bag/suitcase is allowed. 
  • If skaters need to use the restroom, we highly recommend they do so before their session begins, continuing social distancing guidelines. 
  • Skaters must follow the traffic pattern marked on the floor of the facility upon entrance and proceed directly to the rink designated for their session.  Skaters will sit in a chair and remain in that chair until their session begins, then practice the 6’ social distancing guideline as they enter the ice.  Facemasks can be removed one they enter the ice and must be replaced before exiting the ice at the end of the session. 
  • Coaches will use the hockey bench area boards to place personal items at the 6’ distance markers. HOCKEY BENCHES WILL REMAIN CLOSED.  Do not enter! 
  • Skaters will use one 6’ mark along the boards to place guards, water bottle and device. Notebooks cannot be allowed during this restricted time.  Tissues must remain either in a pocket or a zip-loc bag and disposed of properly upon the end of the session. 
  • Devices attached to the Aux cord are the only form of music allowed during this restricted period. There is currently no access to the CD player.  Skaters and coaches must wipe the Aux cord with provided sanitizing wipes after each use.  Discard the used wipe in the provided receptacle. 
  • When the session is over, skaters must replace their facemasks before exiting the ice, maintain social distancing when exiting the ice and walk directly to their chair to remove skates, gather belongings, etc.  
  • Skaters and visitors have 10 minutes to get skates off and leave the facility.
