Masks are recommended but they are not mandatory on the ice because each arena will follow Public health orders.

These orders state that for indoor events with fewer 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 remember a certain skating etiquette:

  • Circle skating only, no aggressive skating or hockey

  • Ice skates only, no boots, but wheelchairs and strollers are allowed (helmet highly recommended)

  • No food or drink on the ice

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

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