Coronavirus Safety Guidelines

At our August 11 board meeting, our Board of Directors voted to use the following COVID guidelines for the 2021-2022 season beginning in September 2021:

  • Masks will be required for all curlers until further notice given the current COVID conditions.
  • All five sheets will be utilized. Sheets 2 and 4 will start on the far end (west side).
  • Two sweepers will be allowed.
  • Coin flips for hammer will be allowed.

The Board of Directors will continue to monitor COVID conditions and guidance from health professionals throughout the fall, and update guidelines as appropriate. These guidelines are subject to change at the discretion of the Aksarben Curling Board of Directors.


 Masks:

  • Everyone must wear a mask covering both their nose and mouth the whole time while on the ice and in the building (except when taking a drink by the back boards).
  • Masks should be well fit (snug around the face, not too tight but also not loose).
  • Cloth masks should have at least two layers of cloth.
  • Face shields, bandanas, and neck gaiters are not allowed (unless you wear a mask underneath).
  • The only exception to keeping the mask on is when taking a drink - all drinks should be placed against the back boards, and refrain from talking when your mask is off.
  • You may want to bring a couple masks to see which would work best for you while curling
  • Some tips for preventing foggy glasses include:
    • Ensure your mask is well fit
    • Use a mask with a metal band in the nose
    • Try to wear your mask high on your nose under your glasses
    • Use athletic tape to tape the mask to the bridge of your nose
    • Again, bring a couple masks to try out to see which works best with glasses
Handshakes & Hammer:
  • Please be respectful and acknowledge that some of your fellow curlers may not want to shake hands before or after your match.
  • But do say 'Good Curling!'
  • Coin flips are allowed to determine who gets the hammer.

Sweeping Restrictions:

  • Two sweepers will be allowed.

Ice Utilization:

  • All 5 sheets are able to be utilized again. Sheets 2 and 4 will start play on the West side of the ice.

Substitutes:

  • Only current, dues-paying members are allowed to sub. Visit our website's Member Home to share your subbing availability or to find a sub.
