April 6, 2021

After a COVID-19 outbreak among coaches, players and fans, youth ice hockey has been suspended.  There were 240 people at the Regional Iceplex and 27 tested positive.  Everyone that was there was told to self-quarentine immediately.

The County Director of Public Health, Dr. Michael Medoza said, “As per New York State guidance, higher risk sports competitions may occur only as permitted by local health authorities.  In Monroe County, we are seeing a substantial and growing number of COVID-19 cases related to ice hockey, more so than other higher risk sports.”
