FACILITY UPDATE: COVID-19
Dear Sharks Ice families:
As many of you have already heard, Alameda County’s Health Officer has joined with five other Bay Area health officers in implementing a Stay At Home order effective Monday, December 7. The new restrictions will be in effect until January 4, 2021. Among other suspended activities, the on-ice youth classes, camps and clinics we have been offering must temporarily cease beginning on Monday. Programs will continue as planned through Sunday, December 6.
It deeply saddens us not to be able to offer these healthy activities and childcare options for the children in our community. At the same time, we respect the county’s guidance and are proud to continue to do our part to ensure the public safety. We sincerely hope the current initiative will help to drive down the community spread of COVID-19 in the Bay Area, and that we will be able to pick up where we are leaving off in the new year.
We are exploring the opportunity for outdoor classes, virtual programs, and other approved activities. In the meantime, please stay safe and enjoy your holiday season.

Hand Sanitizer is available throughout Oakland Ice Center. We recommend carrying a small personal bottle of hand sanitizer with you, so you can sanitize your hands as needed.
