Doug Woog Arena COVID-19 Operational Response Objective: Provide recreational skating opportunities in a modified and safe setting that meets CDC guidelines. Goals Provide safe space for skaters to participate in on-ice activities that safely fall within CDC or state guidelines. Increase facility cleaning and sanitizing requirements within facility. Encourage proper sanitizing and social distancing for all customers to minimize person to person exposure of the virus. Limit to 50 skaters on the ice with 2 pods of 25 per each hour our 25 skaters skating together Maintain open lines of communication with all customers to understand and address safety concerns of our clients. Maintain and build on customer relationships by providing the highest level of customer service and care. Work with each customer individually and with empathy to understand their concerns and do our part to mitigate those concerns where possible. Regularly analyze financial impact and modify in a timely manner to protect revenue sources and minimize expenses. It is assumed the operations will run lean at reopening. Services will be added strategically as schedule and revenue drive additional needs Operations Ice Arena staffing models are based on crowd size and demand for services. It is anticipated that the CDC’s guidelines will allow for phased growth of skating program opportunities at the Ice Arena. We will assume operating a very lean service model in the early stages of reopening with a focus on providing on-ice services (no concessions, no skate sharpening, no event programming, etc.). This will minimize congregating behaviors while also minimizing staffing requirements. As an example, one employee per shift could likely handle the workload in a modified setting. Additional staffing and services will be added as guidelines allow and customer needs grow. Allow 30 minutes in between ice blocks to allow extra cleanup between users. Exposure Limitations Public Areas: 2 spectators per skater Request that patrons stay six feet away from others Cleaning of surface areas several times a day Addition of accessible hand sanitizer dispensers Require skaters to where masks when entering the building and remain on until the enter the ice Require spectators to where masks at all times Request of limited or non-use of handrailing Request that all user groups adhere to CDC recommendations Certain parts of the building will be closed to limit cleaning Spectators are allowed to sit or stand on the marked areas for viewing.

Players are to arrive at the EPCC no sooner than 15 minutes prior to ice time. Utilize the Ice Rink Ice entrance, associated with the rink your skating on. If the Main Rink 1 Entrance is locked, then enter thru the Rink 3 Entrance. A Rink Attendant will open team rooms 10-12 min prior to the scheduled ice time. It is recommended that players arrive half-dressed in hockey gear. Be sure to bring water bottles, as there is no access to facility drinking fountains. Social Distance protocols are required by all players when not on the ice. All players must be out of the building 15 minutes after the ice time has ended. A Rink Attendant will be sanitizing bench areas & team rooms in between groups. Thank you for your cooperation as we navigate through unprecedented times.
