The Douglas N. Everett Arena has closed its doors to the public for the next 2 weeks under the advisement of new COVID-19 guidelines by the State of New Hampshire.
Governor Sununu gave a coronavirus response update yesterday suspending all ice activities at indoor arena facilities for a 2 week period due to concern of recent reports of COVID-19 outbreaks in the state linked to ice hockey. The break on activities is intended for arenas to put additional safety measures in place, to clean and sanitize facilities, and give players and their family time to get tested.
The Everett Arena has already been exceeding all state and federal guidelines for cleaning and sanitization. There have not been any known COVID-19 cases linked to the Everett Arena, but all arena activities have been canceled as of 4:45 p.m. Thursday, October 15 per these new regulations. Hockey, stick practice, and public ice skating are all suspended until further notice. A reopening date is anticipated in two weeks depending on state guidelines.
The Everett Arena is committed to public safety being the first priority. We thank the community for their support during this time. Visit www.concordnh.gov/arena for future updates.
