Please refer to the below guidelines for your and others’ safety.
At the Rink
- Do not come to curling if you have any known Covid-19 symptoms.
Please be sure you are obeying all current health guidelines as recommended by the State of New Mexico. This includes any quarantines as required by the state.
- Outpost Ice Arenas is checking temperatures at the door. Please comply with all Outpost Ice Arena health guidelines.
- Please arrive prepared to curl to avoid locker room use. Bring your shoes and change quickly and away from others.
In compliance with the New Mexico state health order, everyone must wear a mask indoors, including while curling. Masks may be removed briefly to drink water.
- Only those who are curling are allowed (no spectators). A minor may have one parent or guardian present.
- During ice prep and teardown, maintain 6 feet of distance and wait in the hallway if others are in the freezer room.
- Please use the hand sanitizer provided by Outpost Ice Arenas.
On the Ice
- Masks are required.
- Refrain from physical contact with other players.
- Instead of the traditional handshakes, we tap our brooms together or “air high five” so a safe distance is maintained.
- Handle only the rocks assigned to your position.
- Refrain from sharing other equipment (brooms, sliders, stabilizers) if possible.
- We recommend one sweeper for each shot. The second sweeper should walk with the stone at at a safe distance, and participate in timing and communication with the skip.
- The opposing skip should not sweep stones in the house unless 6 feet of distance can be maintained.
- One of the vices will be assigned to handle placing the score on the scoreboard for the entire game.
- Cleaning solution and paper towels are available to wipe down your rock handles and equipment.
- We recommend leaving your curling gloves on to touch any door handles or ice prep equipment.
If you are unable or unwilling to follow the above guidelines, you may be asked to leave.
