2021/2022 COVID 19 PROTOCOLS

Here are our protocols for the 2021/2022 season:

  • All vaccine-eligible people (curlers, members, visitors) must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before entering the club.   Vaccination status will be verified.
  • Everyone visiting the ACC must review the Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Public Health Unit COVID-19 self-evaluation form before entering.
  • Everyone must sign-in for contact tracing every visit, using the sign-in sheet or the assigned QR code.


  • Once signed in, move away from the entrance to the change room or the lounge to get ready for your game. 
  • All areas of the club (lounge, bar, kitchen, change rooms, washrooms) are open. 
  • Keep your mask on at all times except when seated and on the ice (see below).
  • Respect physical distancing requirements.  Tables in the lounge will be assigned for fixed and mixed league teams.  For open (drop-in) leagues, don’t crowd tables.

On the ice:

  • If you’re playing on sheets 3 and 4 enter the ice surface from the door closest to the bar, if on sheets 1 and 2 enter the ice surface from the far door.
  • Regular (2019) curling rules apply.
  • No hand-shakes, broom taps are recommended.
  • You can only touch your own rocks and equipment.  
  • Masks can be removed once on the ice surface (if someone decides to wear a mask, please be respectful). 
  • Rocks will be sanitized with wipes after each game.
  • Club equipment (brooms, stabilizers and sliders) will be available for you to use during games.  Sanitizing wipes will be available for you to wipe down club equipment once a game is finished.
  • Replace your mask to enter the lounge area until seated.

If you don’t feel well … please stay home
