Governor Sununu curtails operation of all ice rinks and hockey events

Published on

Governor Sununu is curtailing the operation of all ice rinks and hockey events in the State of NH for a period of two weeks. Therefore the Rochester Arena is currently closed per these orders.

“Taking the advice of Public Health officials, we are announcing a two-week pause on all activities on the ice,” said Governor Sununu. “By and large, our Youth and Amateur Sports guidance has worked as designed. However, some recent incidents – specifically with hockey – necessitate this pause.”

“We’ll work hand-in-hand with rink owners, hockey programs, and public health officials during these next two weeks to put additional safeguards in place. This pause also enables rinks to take the time to clean and sanitize their facilities, and for players to get tested.”

Rochester Arena staff thank the public and participants for their understanding. 

More information will be posted on the Recreation Department’s website and social media platforms as it becomes available. Scheduled users of the arena should check in with their respective organizations for additional information and inquiries.
