Minnesota Hockey today announced it will move to Phase 3 of its Return to Play Guidelines beginning Tuesday, September 1. Phase 3 is intended to provide guidelines for Minnesota Hockey’s community-based associations as programs enter the regular season.
The guidelines are not intended or implied to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Local rinks and associations must follow the guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and its Sport Guidance for Youth and Adults, as well as local government officials in determining when, and how, it is appropriate to return to the rinks, including requirements or guidelines for physical distancing, size of gatherings or number of people permitted in a facility, or wearing masks, etc.

Stay safe and see you at the rink!
