The board of the Skatium has voted to keep the rink closed for the 2020/21 season due to COVID-19. The decision was made after careful review of COVID-19 data and trends, guidance issued by the state of Vermont and procedures and operational protocols required to keep employees and customers safe.
“We regret having to make this decision,” said Don Swain, board chair. “We understand how important the rink is to the community and considered multiple options to keep it open. But in the end, the option that made the most sense was the one we liked least, closing the rink for the season.”
