DRWC IS committed to safety

Our highest priority is the safety and well-being of our visitors, staff, and partners. Here at Winterfest, we are doing our part by taking the following steps:
  • All guests and Rink staff are required to wear masks
  • Limiting site capacity to provide a safe and enjoyable experience for all. There is a separate capacity for the rink then for Winterfest so all guests feel comfortable.
  • Staggering ice skating ticket times and encouraging advance purchases to mitigate crowding and ensure a seamless ticketing and skate rental experience.
  • Conducting thorough, deep cleanings of all public spaces including public restrooms, seating areas, and ice skates with cleaners that destroy viruses and regularly sanitizing all public spaces sneeze guards and partitions at all points of contact between visitors and vendors.
  • Providing handwashing stations and hand sanitizers at various locations throughout Winterfest.
  • Ensuring all staff onsite wear appropriate personal protective equipment.
  • Continuously evaluating best practices and recommendations from experts.
If you have any other questions about how we are addressing COVID-19 at Winterfest, please reach out to us at riverrink@drwc.org.
