March 29th, 2021

MedStar Capitals Iceplex patrons,

Due to the Governors updates to Executive Order 72, MedStar Capitals Iceplex is beyond thrilled to announce that beginning April 3rd we are now able to bring back activities and viewing privileges that we all know and love!  

These protocols will remain in effect: 

- Enforced Social Distancing  

- Continuing our mask policy  

- Each person entering the facility must have a DASH barcode to be scanned for contact tracing purposes  

- All activities must be purchased in advance through either Open Sports or our DASH platform 

- Entry to the facility will remain 10 min in advance of the start time and exit within 10 min after. 

- Continual sanitation of high traffic areas 

- Our Stores are open and accessible to everyone with a limited capacity. 

- Washington Capitals practices will remain closed to the public  


Exciting changes we will be making moving forward: 

- Public skates will be back on the schedule, limited to 50 people.  

- Spectators are now being allowed back in the facility, we are allowing a maximum of 2 per participant, dependent on activity. Please be sure to review directions that you will receive based on the program you sign up for. 

- We will be strictly enforcing a 100 person spectator limit per activity with the use of wristbands.  Please be sure they are visible. 

- Spectators will be asked to stand where directed and not crowd rink entrances or exits. 

We do not expect or encourage everyone to enter the facility- but we will permit you to.  COVID remains a risk and to reduce the spread in a public place it is important to continue to follow the CDC Guidelines to reduce the spread of the disease. Our primary goal is to keep our patrons and employees safe while we work to bring you back to normal.  

We can’t wait to welcome you back and restore the sense of community we are all craving!  This is the first step towards that destination.
