LAKVIC MANAGEMENT 

**UPDATE 7/6/20

Dear loyal LAKVIC Customers and Ice skaters,

We want to update you on how and why some of our procedures are changing again due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in California. 

Beginning Monday, July 6th, masks will be required at all times throughout the facility, including worn by COACHES while you are on the ice teaching.

Masks are not mandatory for skaters to wear while on the ice skating but are recommended.

Any breathable mask is acceptable, as long as your nose and mouth are both fully covered. You may lower your mask beneath your nose when necessary as long as you are social distancing from others. It may take a while to get adjusted to coaching/skating with a mask on, so we recommend taking it a little slower your first few times out there. 

LOCKER ROOMS ARE NOW CLOSED

We have designated a changing area in the rear gated in area of our facility

Locker Rooms are now permanently closed except for goalies and female skaters who may need a changing room.

Skaters will now get changed out back, walk around to the front entrance of the rink where you will get a temperature check and sign a waiver before paying and entering.

When you are done skating, the exit door will be located on the side of the building

Their will be NO entering and exiting through the same door.

We want to make sure we’re doing everything possible to prevent cross contamination. While it’s unappealing and may be uncomfortable to wear a mask on the ice, it will be worth it to follow these procedures in the event that a new case appears. We have to preemptively make these choices so that we can protect everyone as best we can. We assure you that it’s not about politics and opinions, it’s about getting ahead of this by taking every precaution to our best ability. We want to be preventative rather than chasing something after the fact.

We can be shut down if LA County health officials feel like we’re transmitting the virus within the facility, and we want to stay open for you and the rest of our skaters. 

If you are uncomfortable being in the ice arena at this time or cannot wear a mask while coaching, please wait until the restrictions are lifted before coming back to the rink. We and your fellow skaters will not hold it against you.

Thank you for your understanding, and for helping to keep our rink as safe as we can possibly make it.

Sincerely,

LAKVIC Management
