Exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any public location where people are present; we cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during your visit. The CDC advises that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from Coronavirus. Guests should evaluate their own risk in determining whether to skate. People who show no symptoms can spread Coronavirus if they are infected and any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to Coronavirus. By participating in on and off-ice activities at the PSC&HS, you acknowledge and agree that you assume these inherent risks associated with attendance.
Please Read and Agree to Current Policies for all skaters at PSC&HS:
