COVID19 POLICIES, PROCEDURES, PROTOCOLS & MORE

COVID UPDATE

UPDATE 11/15/20 8:30pm: As you are probably aware, Gov. Whitmer held a press conference this evening and announced a three week pause on certain activities in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

That pause begins on Wednesday, Nov. 18th.

As a result, KOHA activities scheduled for Monday (11/16) and Tuesday (11/17) will take place as scheduled, and all KOHA activities from Nov. 18th through (at least) Dec. 8th will be paused pending an update from the Governor.


IF A PERSON EXHIBITS ANY SYMPTOMS OR IS NOT FEELING WELL - PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE RINK!

IF A PERSON HAS BEEN TESTED FOR COVID AS A RESULT OF SYMPTOMS OR EXPOSURE - PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE RINK UNTIL THERE IS A NEGATIVE TEST RESULT RETURNED!


COVID19 INFORMATION

If you have any questions about KOHA's COVID19 policies, or need to report a positive test for a player or a player's immediate family member, please email us at COVID19@koha.com.

WHAT IF A PLAYER OR COACH TESTS POSITIVE, OR IS IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH SOMEONE WHO TESTS POSITIVE?

Email us immediately at covid19@koha.com or d.toth@koha.com

REMINDER: In the event that potential exposure notification emails need to be sent to specific teams (as per MAHA Return to Play Guidelines), that does NOT necessarily mean that practices/games are cancelled. In any instances where cancellations ARE required, that information would still be communicated to coaches and managers who would then communicate that to their team.


RETURN TO THE RINK REQUIREMENTS:

  • Mask must be worn AT ALL TIMES including on the ice and in the locker room.
  • Players must bring their own water bottle, marked clearly with their name.
  • PRACTICES: Arrive no sooner than 15 minutes prior to your scheduled ice session and check-in with KOHA staff in the lobby; Depart no more than 10 minutes after ice session.
  • Arrive with gear on except helmets & skates.
  • PRACTICES: No more than ONE (1) person/parent may enter the building (for practices) to assist skaters/players who need it with skate tying. That person/parent will be allowed to proceed to the bleachers to watch, but MUST socially distance while there, and must vacate when their player's session concludes. Please make other arrangements for siblings, wait with them in the car, or have them join you in the restaurant and sit with you.
  • GAME ATTENDANCE (WINGS WEST): Two (2) PEOPLE per player may attend games. This includes siblings and children. Two people TOTAL per player, per game may attend.
  • GAME PROTOCOL FOR TEAMS & PLAYERS (WINGS WEST): If teams would like to arrive early and warmup outside, they may. DRESSED players and team coaches/managers (rostered) may enter the building 20 minutes prior to game time. We ask that spectators not enter the rink stands until the start of the ice session. (To give the spectators from the ice session prior time to clear out and exit the building).
  • MAHA REQUIRES MASKS DURING GAMES AND REFEREES MAY ASSESS GAME MISCONDUCTS FOR ANY PLAYER ENTERING THE ICE SURFACE NOT WEARING PROPER FACIAL COVERING!
  • No lingering in the building/lobby areas; keep moving or wait outside. This includes the upper hallway between the rinks and the lobby after your player's ice session.
  • No bags may be left in the lobby, common areas, or the restaurant. (When on the ice, bags may stay in the locker room.)
