Changes, Modifications & Protocols

UPDATES – EFFECTIVE MAY 28, 2021

As of Friday May 28, 2021, Essex County Codey Arena will be following the CDC recommendations and the State of NJ guidelines for indoor facilities where face coverings will not be required while being indoors. 

However, those individuals that are not fully vaccinated, Essex County Codey Arena recommends the wearing of face coverings while being inside at our facility.  The staff at Codey Arena will continue with our daily routine cleaning and sanitizing of all areas and bathrooms within the facility as we want to ensure the safety and well-being of our skating community.

Revised Protocols -

·       All individuals must enter through the main entrance doors of the facility, 20 minutes prior to their scheduled session.

·       Parents are allowed in to watch all practice sessions, lessons and games.

·       Skaters may enter with their skating or hockey bags and will be assigned a designated area to get dressed / changed at.

·       It is recommended that skaters socially distance while in their changing areas.

·       After sessions, skaters will have only 10-15 minutes to change and exit the facility for cleaning purposes.  Changing areas should be left clean and checked for all belongings.

·       If skaters are not feeling well, or have been in contact with someone that has had Covid-19, we ask that you follow the CDC / State guidelines and stay home.

As we continue to move closer to more normalcy, we ask that everyone respects our policies and decisions as well as those individuals around you.  Thank you for your support and cooperation.

 

Respectfully,

Essex County Codey Arena Management & Staff

PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES:

We want to reach out to address the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak and outline the precautions we are taking at the Arena. We are serious about taking the necessary steps to help prevent the spread of this virus. We are disinfecting our facility daily. Our cleaning regimen also includes wiping down all surfaces within the Arena to help prevent the spread of germs. We are strongly encouraging all customers and our staff to do the following to ensure consistent personnel hygiene methods.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Stay home when you are sick. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

For information about handwashing, see CDC’s Handwashing website:
https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/index.html

For information specific to healthcare, see CDC’s Hand Hygiene in Healthcare Settings:
https://www.cdc.gov/handhygiene/index.html

We also ask that if you have flu-like symptoms that you choose to stay home from any Arena events you may have until you have consulted your doctor.

Taking these precautionary steps will help maintain the healthiest and safest environment possible for everyone.

If you have any questions or concerns please call us at the office at (973) 731-3828 ext. 0.

UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

Essex County Codey Arena is dedicated to maintaining a safe, hygienic environment for our visitors and is mindful of concerns from the public about the spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

CLEANING

We have enhanced our already-robust cleaning procedures by disinfecting high-touch areas, using the recommendations outlined by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Essex County Health Department. You can help by following hygiene best practices, and following the guidance of local health officials. You will also notice handwashing reminders in the bathroom and lobby areas.

TRAINING

We are continually monitoring the changing situation, briefing all team members on the nature and symptoms of COVID-19 and best practices to avoid getting or spreading the disease. Employees are asked to stay home if they’re not feeling well. Staff members have been instructed in proper hand-washing and sanitizing practices.

LEARNING

We rely on the guidance of our Essex County Health Department, the New Jersey State Department of Health, the CDC, WHO, and other public health authorities. Our policies will evolve as public-health experts understand more about the virus. Our top priority is the health and safety of our employees and our guests. We will update our plans as the situation develops.

Thank you.
