2021-22 Covid Protocols


    COVID-19 Protocols - 2021-22 Season


    • Masks covering nose and mouth are strongly recommended for players and staff on and off the ice regardless of being vaccinated or not vaccinated per CDC and MDH guidelines. Masks are required while in the lobby areas of the center.


    • Fully vaccinated people may choose to wear a mask in any situation where it feels needed, regardless of whether others around them are masked.
    • Anyone who is not fully vaccinated, including children ages 2 and older, should continue to wear well-fitted facemasks, in all areas of the curling facility.
    • When wearing a mask is impractical or impossible maintain social distancing of at least 6 feet from others at all times as much as possible.
    • Do not come into the building if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms that may include but are not limited to fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, or headache.
    • A member who tests positive for COVID-19 is strongly encouraged to report the result as soon as possible to the SCCC board chair for the well-being of fellow members. The identity of the affected member will be kept confidential. SCCC will need to know which league(s) the affected member plays in so that league players can be notified that they have had a possible COVID-19 exposure and may opt to be tested.
    • A member who tests positive should follow current CDC guidelines found at https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/basics.html to determine when it is safe to return. As of this writing, current CDC guidelines require:
    • 10 days since symptoms first appeared and
    • 24 hours with no fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and
    • Other symptoms of COVID-19 are improving (Loss of taste and smell may persist for weeks or months after recovery and need not delay the end of isolation).
    • Non-curling visitors and spectators are permitted and are strongly encouraged to follow masking guidelines as outlined above. Please remain socially distanced as much as possible.
    • Curlers in leagues other than the one currently being played should not linger. Plan to arrive no more than 15 minutes before your scheduled game.
    • Locker rooms may be used for changing clothes, however, use common sense to socially distance as necessary.
    • Anyone who uses SCCC-owned equipment (brooms, stabilizers, etc.) must sanitize items with the provided sanitizer before returning them.


    Game Play

    • Five sheets of ice will be scheduled to play each draw. All games will begin at the end of the arena closest to the lobby. Maintain social distancing as much as possible during games.
    • Games will be 8 ends however stop earlier if necessary to end on time. Normal tiebreaker rules apply (one stone per team).
    • Use elbow bump, fist bump, or wave to your opponents for the traditional handshake before and after the games.
    • Hammer and stone color will be determined by the Thirds through a normal coin flip.
    • Two sweepers are allowed per stone thrown.
    • Handle only your two designated stones as much as possible. After an end, all should use their feet or brooms to push their team’s stones into place for the next end.
    • Winning team will sweep the ice as usual. Use of sanitizing wipes to clean the rock handles, broom handles is available but is optional.
