PA announcement today. (More Restrictions)
Topic: July 15, 2020, 05:05:33 PM
Based on Gov Wolfs announcement today where does that leave pa hockey ? Max 25? No games any time soon? Is a rink a gym or fitness facility? Even those “require a mask” now require distancing?

Anyone with clarity on these topics know?

No one knows what this guy is doing.  One man is arbitrarily messing with the livelihood's of millions.  Constantly moving the goalposts and making it impossible for business owners or orgs like hockey clubs to plan.

A rink is considered indoor entertainment, same as gym or any other recreational facility.

This was established by responsible youth sports groups who contacted the PA Department of Health and Department of Community and Economic Development. The DCED will take phone calls and tell you exactly this. There are no loopholes, no wiggle room for a rink to be anything else.

Wear your masks, stay six feet apart, stop trying to figure out ways to cheat the system, be responsible and ethical and follow all the rules laid out by the CDC, the state and the strict guidelines from USA Hockey (NO ONE should even be thinking of playing games right now and certainly not with players who are traveling from one rink to another let alone between regions).

The more people try to find a way to not follow the rules, the more likely these kids won't see games until Fall 2021.

I am sick of people blaming Gov Wolf for 100% of these decisions. He is basing decisions on guidance from MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS. Unless you are an infectious disease professional please take a second to understand the risks. All it takes is one infected person at the rink to spread the infection around quickly.

This is impacting all of us. I understand that it is hurting some more than others. However, left unchecked we will be in a far worse situation. And for the record...I am a safety professional with 15 years in the respiratory field so I am not misguided, political, or a snow flake.

I guess all the people that are worried about rinks opening, are more worried about their child’s D1 scholarship rather than their safety

What are you talking about? That logic can be applied anywhere he's allowing to stay open. There is no difference than having access to an office at 75% or walk-in, non-bar business at 50%. Rinks have been allowed to be open since the green phase and still should be. Keep spectators and parents away and have the kids wear masks while changing in open areas or have them change at home. Have everyone wear masks in the public areas. This "all it takes is one person" nonsense is laughable. If idiots weren't going to packed bars and clubs without any distancing or mask awareness we wouldn't be having this conversation. Don't treat responsible kids and adults like those numbskulls.

If everyone would stop being selfish, follow the rules, and stop blaming others, everything would open up a lot faster. But, sadly, we are surrounded by assholes who only care about themselves, refuse to wear masks because "freedom", and find sneaking ways to gather. Suck it up buttercup. The world does not revolve around you.

Philadelphia is opening gyms next week so perhaps rinks are staying open at 25% capacity not 25 person capacity.  From the way I read it the 25 person rule applies to gatherings like indoor dinner parties where you are not able to wear a mask and eat at the same time.

Our county and local counties have no issues, Covid cases very low. What happened to basing decisions on local conditions?!

Hockey is mentioned clearly:

Recreational and amateur sports organizations and teams (not affiliated with a public or private PK-12 school), including, but not limited to, basketball, hockey, field hockey, football, soccer, swimming, baseball, softball, lacrosse, gymnastics, and kickball, are permitted to conduct in-person activities, including games and practices, in counties designated as being in the Green phase only if they strictly adhere to the requirements of this guidance, including the limits on total occupancy outlined below.

Each individual game or practice at a complex must adhere to the gathering occupancy limits (25 in yellow, 250 outdoors and 25 indoors in green), and the facility as a whole may not exceed 50% of total occupancy otherwise permitted by law.
