The Winthrop Rink is scheduled to open for the 2021-22 season on Nov. 6, Mayor Sally Ranzau said at last week’s Town Council meeting.
Ranzau said the rink has a full schedule of adult and youth hockey tournaments booked for the coming months.
The same COVID protocols that applied last year will be in effect to start the season, Ranzau said, but those could be eased as state guidelines change.
According to the rink’s website, “We are closing the rink indoor facility with the exception of the bathrooms which will remain open for use. We will continue to use outdoor warming tents along with outdoor breezeway benches and check-in window. … We will also continue to use signage encouraging proper hygiene, social distancing, and masking requirements where appropriate. Following CDC, local, and state regulations for COVID-19, we will require use of masks indoors for staff and volunteers and public use of the restrooms. Outdoors we strongly encourage mask wearing but will not require it. … There is no current mandate requiring vaccinations in order to participate in or coach the outdoor activities or programs.”
