COVID-19

COVID has impacted our lives in many ways. Curling is no different. Most curling clubs in the state are planning to open. We are planning to curl this season. We benefit from a wealth of good insights throughout the curling world on how to best adjust our sport to mitigate the risks associated with COVID. 

Regardless of COVID-related adjustments, it is not possible to eliminate all risks of a COVID infection in any group activity. We expect and understand that some members will decide to forgo curling this year or maybe wait until something changes later in the year to make them more comfortable. 

 

RETURN TO CURLING IN A COVID ENVIRONMENT

 

Introduction:

Over the year, the Stevens Point Curling Club Board of Directors has been carefully watching, weighing, and discussing how to safely and effectively return to curling this fall. Your Board of Directors considered all possibilities to ensure this year at our brand-new facility is successful, safe, and enjoyable for all. 

 

Masks:

We want to provide a safe environment for curlers as well as our community. As recommended by the CDC, if you are vaccinated, you do not need to wear a mask while in our facility, though guidelines do recommend that you do. If you have not been vaccinated, you should wear a mask while in our facility.

We trust that you will make a safe and healthy choice for yourself and others.

 

Locker Rooms:

There are no immediate plans to limit access to the number of people allowed in the locker rooms, but if an outbreak does occur, this may be implemented. We recommend that members come to the club ‘prepared to curl’ (proper outerwear is worn) if able to prevent congestion in the locker rooms.

 

Game Play:

  • Skips need to be cognizant of their surroundings and social distancing, and any unnecessary sweeping in the house should be avoided (if the stone is going to go through, don’t dust it out).
  • After each game, each team member is responsible for sanitizing the stones that they utilized (the other option is to have the losing team/team cleaning the ice take care of this).
  • Drinks on the Ice should be clearly marked with the owner's name and in an enclosed container (containers from home can be utilized).

 

Waivers & Non-Compliance:

Each member shall be required to sign a waiver indicating that they agree to hold the club harmless if COVID-19 is contracted while at the facility. Additionally, members should agree to assist with proper contact tracing if they end up getting COVID-19 and have spent time at our facility. Finally, all members should understand that if a COVID-19 breakout occurs, the club will close for several days for proper sanitation. Club fees shouldn’t be reimbursed during this time. 

If a member refuses to follow the set rules (enforced by the Board and the League Chairs), the Board and/or the League Chairs may eject that member from play for that night, or for the season if it continues to be an issue.
