To the Upper Valley skating community,
When the COVID 19 pandemic began The Hanover Improvement Society enlisted a team of advisors including experienced physicians who are familiar with our operations, and who we know are highly supportive of physical exercise and team sports. We also consulted with an infectious disease specialist on the recommendation from the town of Hanover’s health inspector.
When it came to welcoming teams from outside of the area, our telling concern was that infections might occur and the infected people most likely are unaware and they would unwittingly bring these infections into our schools and community.
Our team of medical advisors unanimously advised against bringing in people from outside the local area.
Clearly, there are no perfect answers in a pandemic. We are doing our best to serve our entire community and will react to the ever-changing conditions around us. We will continue to monitor the situation and consult with our team of medical experts.
Our main objective is to continue to provide a safe environment for patrons and employees alike to enjoy as we get through this together.
The Hanover Improvement Society
