Our primary objective at The Rink at Thompson’s Point is the continued health and safety of our guests, tenants, employees and vendors. Because of this, we have implemented the following policies in response to COVID-19:

 

Rink Rules

- We require that all visitors and skaters bring and wear a mask at all times.  In accordance with the Maine CDC guidelines, The Rink at Thompson's Point Staff reserve the right to require masks of all visitors, on and off the ice, at any time.

 

-Please maintain a safe distance of at least 6 feet and be respectful to other guests.  We have designed the rink layout this year to allow plenty of spacing of all guests.  We will no longer have the yurt, lounge or kid rink to provide these spaces.  We apologize for any inconvenience, we want to keep everyone safe and still provide this outdoor experience.

-Please stay home if you or anyone that you have been around present these symptoms :

Fever ▫ cough ▫ chills ▫ muscle pain ▫ headache ▫ sore throat ▫ loss of taste or smell ▫ shortness of breath

 

-We are closely following the State of Maine and Maine CDC guidance on the travel restrictions.  This may require a 14 day quarantine or showing written proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of entering the state of Maine.  We encourage you to visit their website to check the latest updates to the travel ban, as that will inform how we are operating on a daily basis.  You can find their website here.
