HRM Arena Policy for Zatzman Sportsplex

Zatzman Sportsplex COVID-19 Arena Spectator Guidelines Effective October 1, 2020, arenas across HRM will allow spectators in their facilities provided the specified guidelines are followed. Below is a list of these guidelines, along with the specific processes and procedures pertaining to the Zatzman Sportsplex. One spectator per participant up to a maximum of 50 spectators, will be permitted in the arena.Spectator COVID-19 forms, contact tracing, monitoring, and compliance will be the sole responsibility of the renter. The Zatzman Sportsplex will require a minimum of 48 hours written notice if the renter will be hosting spectators, as well as the name and contact information for each volunteer that will be responsible for their spectators. There is no requirement to have spectators. You can also choose to have spectators for games but not for practices or vice versa. All spectators will be required to complete a COVID—19 pre-screening and to provide contact tracing information to a representative of the ice renter prior to proceeding to the viewing area. Each rental group that is allowing spectators is required to provide a volunteer that is responsible for the COVID-19 pre-screening, forms, contact tracing, spectator limit, and monitoring of spectators during the rental. A standard COVID-19 pre-screening form will be emailed to each rental group. The Zatzman Sportsplex will not provide printed copies of this form. Groups will be responsible for administering and collecting these forms and record keeping. Processes for collecting forms and information will be at the discretion of the renter, however, forms must be completed on the day that the spectator is attending. Forms must be kept for a minimum of 30 days. Spectators will be permitted to enter the arena 5 minutes prior to the scheduled ice time.There is a separate spectator entrance for the Zatzman Sportsplex arena. It is located to the right of the main entrance, in the corner next to the black bike/storage lockers. Each rental group will be required to have their volunteer arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the rental (through the main entrance). The volunteer will then go to the designated area to set-up to let spectators in no sooner than 5 minutes prior to the start of the rental. We suggest that the volunteer remain at the spectator entrance until at least 10 minutes after the start of the rental. At that time, the door will be closed and any spectators wishing to come in after that would have to contact the volunteer to be let in through the spectator entrance. If at any point a spectator leaves the facility and wants to return, the volunteer is responsible for letting the spectator back into the building and ensuring all COVID-19 protocols were followed. Spectators must wear a mask and physically distance at all times. Spectators from the same family are permitted to sit together if there are no more than 10 in the group without social distancing. Designated viewing areas are sections 3–11. Spectators will not be permitted anywhere in the facility except to walk to the viewing area.All spectators must go directly to an available seat between sections 3–11. There will be no building access to the Zatzman Sportsplex. Washrooms are in the arena behind section 6. Spectators are not permitted to use the track at any time. Anyone wishing to use the track must book a time through HRM MyRec. Spectators are not permitted in dressing rooms or dressing room hallway. Please refer the COVID-19 Arena Rental Guidelines for details on participants under 12. Anyone accompanying a participant 12 or under to assist them with their gear will be required to exit the facility and enter again through the spectator entrance. Spectators must exit the arena as soon as the scheduled ice time ends, and the next group of spectators will not be permitted to enter the facility until the spectator area is completely vacant. There is a designated exit door for spectators located behind sections 3 and 4. Spectators are not permitted to use any other doors for exiting other than in the case of an emergency. No food or drink will be permitted for spectators. This is to ensure spectators are always wearing their mask. Each ice renter will be required to have an individual assigned to ensure these guidelines are followed for the duration of the rental.In the place of a volunteer, a security company may be used to monitor spectators on behalf of the rental group. The cost of the security is the sole responsibility of the rental group. Renters that do not enforce the spectator guidelines may lose their privilege to have spectators and/or lose their ice time. If you have any questions, require more information, or would like a tour of arena to better understand these guidelines, please contact Tara Myra, Facility Rentals and Events Coordinator at myrat@halifax.ca.
