All staff, coaches, referees, and athletes at Everett Arena will now be required to get tested for COVID-19 before returning to the ice.

Everett Arena closed its doors for two weeks, following positive COVID-19 tests for 158 people associated with the sport over the last two months, though there were no cases associated with the Concord arena specifically. On Friday, the arena opened to athletes with new guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Hockey players must provide a negative COVID-19 test by Nov. 6, or prove they contracted COVID-19 between July and October. Anyone who participated in public skating or stick practice at the arena before Oct. 15 is also required to provide a negative COVID-19 test by Nov. 6.

In addition to mandated testing, the arena will operate at 50% capacity during public skating and limit spectators to immediate family.

Masks, which used to be required for patrons while off the ice, will now be required for recreational skaters to include those skating recreationally.

Masks are also now recommended, but not mandated, for athletes on the ice.

As an additional precaution, all Everett Arena visitors and staff will be required to complete a COVID-19 screening on a kiosk in the lobby. The screening includes a questionnaire and a temperature check.

Staff will en that visitors completed their screening by checking a unique QR code provided by the kiosk that becomes invalid after 24 hours.
