Coral Ridge Mall Ice Arena reopens with new safety guidelines

CORALVILLE, Iowa (KWWL) - Along with the restaurants and other establishments that have reopened, the Coral Ridge Mall Ice Arena is one of them.

After being shut down back in March, Spectra Venue Management General Manager, Jack Ligon, said the ice rink made additional repairs, as well as implement COVID friendly precautions.

"Our big focus right now is trying to make sure people feel safe and comfortable, try to provide the opportunity you know and the landscape fore-end is try to have some fun and get out while doing it as safe as possible," Login said.

SOME PRECAUTIONS TO EXPECT ARE:

  • hand sanitizing stations set up around the arena
  • employees wearing face masks
  • maximum of 35 people on the ice
  • can only access the locker room ten minutes before your skate time

Summer camps, figure skating, and hockey teams can also utilize the arena again but are required to come dress before hitting the ice.

Ligon said making a lot of adjustments was a challenge, but it's worth it if people feel comfortable to skate again.

"It's challenging, but it''s something we are trying to work with all the user groups to make it safe and fun and make sure the community's comfortable," Ligon said, "we want them to be comfortable and want them to be able to come back out to the rink."

It's highly recommended people wear masks while skating. Ligon also encourages skaters to be the 'ultimate teammate' and be mindful of others' health by practicing good hygiene.
