COVID-19 Preparedness Plan

Below are guidelines of prevention strategies to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 as outlined by the Minnesota Department of Health, CDC, and governing bodies. This page will be updated as new guidelines are announced and/or changed.

AHA Hockey expects its participants to follow the guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and its Guidance for Social Distancing, as well as local government officials in determining when, and how, it is appropriate to return to the rinks, including requirements or guidelines for physical distancing, size of gatherings or number of people permitted in a facility, or wearing masks, etc.

The information in this Preparedness Plan is not intended or implied to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. The knowledge and circumstances around COVID-19 are changing constantly and, as such, AHA Hockey makes no representation and assumes no responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of this information.

AHA Hockey has worked closely with each of the facilities where activities will be held. All facilities have committed to creating a safe environment for participants including precautions for entering and exiting the facility and sanitizing common areas frequently.

General Precautions

  • A self-check should be performed by each participant prior to participation in AHA activities. This self-check should consider:
  • Anyone with symptoms of illness, have family members in their household with symptoms of illness, or have come in close contact with infected person(s) should stay home and follow CDC and Health Department rules and guidelines for self-quarantine.

Arena Guidelines

Parade Arena:

  • Masks are encouraged for vaccinated staff and/or patrons indoors.
  • Masks are required for all unvaccinated staff and/or patrons indoors.

All Other Arenas:

  • All COVID-19 guidelines have been lifted. Masks are recommended for people that have not been vaccinated yet.
