Masks are recommended but they are not mandatory on the ice because each arena will be following Public Health Orders.

Those orders state that indoor organized events with less than 50 people, proof of vaccination is not required but contact tracing information is required.

The City explains that proof of vaccination will be required during special events such as the Family Holiday Skate event.

Visitors are reminded of some skating etiquette:

  • Circular skating only, no aggressive skating or hockey

  • Skates on the ice only, no boots, but wheelchairs and strollers are allowed (helmets strongly recommended)

  • No food or drinks on the ice

  • No sleds or chairs but EZ bars are available for new skaters and children

More information about skating etiquette, COVID-19 guidelines, free skate days, where to find skate rentals and any future cancellations can be found at the City of Kelowna website link.
